Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Xilinx in March 2012.

Interview Details

The process was very smooth. 2 telephonic interview, then a 4 hour long in person interview with the team, principle engineers and director. One in person interview with HR and then lunch with one of the team members.
The offer was made after about a week and a half.
Plus points:
+ Friendly and smart people
+ Office is very nice and work culture seems relatively relaxed
+ At the forefront of innovation
+ Top player in the FPGA industry with a lot of history
Negatives:
- Concerns have been expressed about the senior management and them playing a game of numbers
- Have closed several satellite offices in recent years and still seem to be in the 'transition' phase
- The HR and admin people don't seem very competent. They don't answer questions fast enough, and it takes weeks to move the paperwork around (I'm still waiting for my travel refund!)

Interview Questions
  • Couple of hardware technical questions, mostly talked about my projects, research and past experiences.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
No room for negotiation at all! Perhaps it was the HR person, but he was incredibly aggressive and made me feel quite uncomfortable about the whole situation. Definitely one of the reasons to consider declining the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Xilinx in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    The whole team and their manager (a director) had the 1:1 interview, it is obvious that there was no much preparation beforehand as there are quite some overlapping. The topic is broad, but not deep:

    * what is class inheritance
    * explain some design pattern
    * what is MSVC experience
    * explain some data structure
    * what is career goal

    There is one programming question, how to swap 2 nodes in a double linked list.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you see yourself in 5 years? Asked by the director   Answer Question
