    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Atmel.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the recruited who was knowledgeable and personable. Two rounds of interviews. There were 3-4 people per round. Most interviewers seemed pretty prepared and asked good questions. There was one person that seemed a bit out of her element, but most were people I would want to work with.

    Interview Questions
    • Not so much a question, but more a comment on expectations. Since they have a strong presence in Asia, there was a requirement for call in meetings at odd hours to accommodate for the Asia site.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't get a good feel from the direct hiring manager. I accepted a competing offer from a different company.
