    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Microsemi.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with hiring manager with a huge ego. I've had these kind of interviews before, and it's always the same. The people who know the least always try to make themselves look smart, when they really aren't. They know some narrow area, and ask you ridiculous questions that are impossible to answer on the phone without a whiteboard. The smartest people I know in the area Microsemi is in could turn this manager into mincemeat in a nanosecond, but they themselves are the nicest people in the world with no ego. One time I found out later that the super-know-it-all-windbag person who interviewed me (back when Wang was extant) had lied on his resume and had no EE degree -- he had learned "EE" at a hippie commune -- no lie! Apply here if you want an arrogant self-promoting pompous windbag for a boss.
