    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Wolfson Microelectronics.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was through a recruiter. The first formal interview was phone interview with the hiring manager. After such, there was a scheduled meeting with the whole team I was interviewing for. Here is where the more in- depth technical interview happened. The questions were mainly related to every-day application engineering issues. They also asked for PCB design best practices examples.

    Interview Questions
    • All job related questions were not hard. They just involved normal applications engineering and PCB board design knowledge. The most unexpected (not because it was hard, but because I did not expect such simple question to be asked) question came to be simple CMOS related logic - NAND, NOR represented in CMOS logic.   Answer Question

    Applications Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Wolfson Microelectronics in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a CV and cover letter, after two weeks got invitation to an interview (was asked to prepare to talk about a recent project that I've completed). During the interview they gave an overall introduction about the company, then I had to present the project to two senior engineers (around 20 mins) and then the technical question session began: various multithreading issues, algorithms (in C resembling pseudo-code, i.e. they're not bothered if you miss a semicolon) and some software design issues.
    However, everyone was really supportive and the inside atmosphere in company is great; they'll push you, but they'll also give you a hand when you need it.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe an algorithm used by OS when allocating virtual memory.   Answer Question
    • Various multithreading questions: these processes ask these resources, will they block, if so, how to solve it?   Answer Question
