    Pros

    Very thorough coverage of semiconductor device research topics, good professors, competitive curriculum, very available hands on research experience.

    Cons

    EE department is not very well known due to its small size, loss of talents, lack attraction to graduate degree applicants

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase salary for talented professors, they will attract talented students and improve quality of EE department's research and education in general.

    Research Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Notre Dame.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and received an e-mail inviting me for an initial phone interview 3 days later. The phone interview was delayed, due to the interviewer forgetting to call me (I e-mailed them, after waiting for 45 minutes). After that, I did another phone interview with the same person as the initial interview, plus two others. Once I passed that interview, I was given a writing assignment which had to be completed in 24 hours. Once I passed that phase, I did a Skype interview with two of the people from the second interview (and no additional people).

    Most of the questions asked during each interview were the same, and often more than once per interview. The people conducting the interviews were not from HR, but rather the people I would be working for. While they were very nice, the whole process seemed very redundant.

    The total time from application to decision was approximately 2.5 weeks.
