TI is continually recognized as a 'best place to work' - offering a creative and friendly work environment, a variety of assignments, and extensive professional development & training opportunities.

So come join us. Show us what tomorrow can look like with you at TI.

We are innovation.

When a young TI engineer named Jack Kilby invented the first integrated circuit in a research lab, he had no idea that it would become the innovation leap that changed everything about the way we live and do business around the world. The DNA from that first integrated circuit is at the core of nearly every electronics product we use today…innovations that enrich lives in multiple ways.

    I worked at Texas Instruments as an intern (less than an year)


    Very easy going environment. Time off was based on how long you've worked there. Pretty good pay and relocation help. Lots of employees who have stayed in the business for 20+ years. Gym on campus for employees, cafeterias were spread out. The intern program was awesome and had a lot of events to meet other interns within the company.


    As an intern, the learning process was tough when it came to understanding the company, the different parts of the company, etc. Some might say the compensation/benefits aren't as good as other places.

    Applications Engineer Rotation Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview Details

    The process consisted of 3 interviews. The first was 30 minutes on campus after a career fair. The interviewer asked me to draw a block diagram for a system I've built before. He also asked about challenges I've faced throughout college and how I dealt with them. The second is a 1 hour webcam interview. The interviewer asked more behavioral questions similar to the first interview. For the third and final interview I was flown in to TI Dallas headquarters for a social dinner with other candidates and current members of the rotation program. The next day I attended a campus tour and two back-to-back interviews. For these I presented a project I had done before and was asked additional behavioral and technical questions. These technical questions are based on your project so don't expect to derive Maxwell's equations. Others have had to build different configurations of Op Amps or describe a Bode plot. I guess I was lucky.

    Interview Questions
    • You must have good examples of work that you have done in teams. That is ALL they care about. Technical knowledge can be taught. Do not be afraid to admit you or your team's failures.   Answer Question
