Job is still posted on their website. Horrible that they would treat someone like this!

    Anonymous Employee in Richardson, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Richardson, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TriQuint in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I received an opportunity to interview with Triquint through an employee referral. HR first contacted me to try to set up a date for a company site interview, which was scheduled to be in 11 days. I needed to prepare a 15 min presentation going over my history background and any projects I have worked on to present to a panel that consisted of managers, techs, and engineers. After the presentation, I had 1:1 interviews with 4 people, had a lunch break, then had another set of 1:1 interviews with 5 more people. The interviews were 30 min each and each person asked a good mix of behavioral and technical questions. My presentation started at 8:45am and my last interview ended at 3pm. It was a very long day, but the people there are very pleasant and made me feel comfortable.

    RF Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at TriQuint in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call from HR and my interview was scheduled. It was for an Summer intern position. I had done couple of projects on RF and so I was asked to describe all the projects and 2 projects were completed by me during my sophomore and my memory wasnt great. He asked me names of specific power amplifier and battery specs which I could not answer.

    It was shameful from my perspective that you dont remember your own project. But who does remember such minute details. So my advice is to gp through your resume and your course or intern projects thoroughly. It will help a lot to answer questions.

    • He asked me about very specific parameter values of Power amplifier and batteries I used for my projects. That was hard to remember at that instant of interview.   View Answer

    Product Engineer I/II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at TriQuint in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a few positions at Triquint Semiconductor in March (mid) and got a call in April (mid) for the Product Engineer I/II position. As it seems, it was an entry level position.
    Initially, it was for a phone screen which was conducted by my manager here. The interview was pretty much based on my resume (current job, projects, some basic skills). It lasted for an hour.

    After 2-3 weeks, got an onsite call in May wherein they flew me to hillsboro, oregon.
    It was a panel interview spread out thru the day of my interview. In the beginning I had to present a project of my choice to 2 managers. After that I had off 7-8 rounds of interviews (technical as well as HR). There were behavioral questions as well. It was a comprehensive interview and they gave me the offer within a week.

    The interviewers were pretty intelligent about their questions and also thorough whenever I asked any questions related to the company. It was an interactive session with each interviewer.
    The HRs were quick in their responses and were quite co-operative.
