The process took 5 days - interviewed at Xilinx in June 2009.

Interview Details – Fairly standard, contacted by a recruiter, then a phone screen and then an onsite interview. Interview was very technical in nature and a few questions were asked. The questions were mostly circuits related and very pertinent to the job. I was contacted within 3 days after the interview. They did not ask much off the resume.

Interview Question – Draw a simple divider.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Xilinx in April 2010.

Interview Details – Very detailed technical interview conducted over the phone, not the typical "pre-screen" type call I was expecting. Can't imagine what the in-person interview would have been like, had they called me in! Spoke only with the hiring manager who, in fairness, was friendly.

Interview Question – Was asked to explain, in great detail, a project I last worked on more than three years ago!   View Answer
