    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AMD in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got an email from the hiring manager for phone screen schedule on the next day of my online application. Was invited to on-site right after the phone screen. On the day of onsite, there were 5 sections ranging from circuit, logic design, comp arch and device. Had another Design Engineer II who worked there for one year took me for a lunch. Make sure you know everything about what you have on your resume. Make sure you really have a SOLID knowledge background in your area of study.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AMD (Fort Collins, CO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring manager contacted. Setup time and date. Same time HR called me. Spoke with the hiring manager and in a couple of days got an invitation for onsite. They took care of my travel and stay. Everything was fantastic. Gave me an intermediate car and stayed at Hilton, right opposite to AMD.
    The interview started @ 9, was welcomed by the HR and then the hiring manager. Each rounds were an hour long. But the interviews were so great that never realized when it was done.
    Took me to lunch.
    The interviews were very discussion oriented and they focused on how I was tackling a problem and building on a solution.
    Overall I liked the interview process.
