    - Very specific and interactive where the interviewer engages in the problems.
    - They look for your understanding of the problem and your approach of solving it no specific syntax or method is required

    Interview

    Process started with a phone screen, followed by a on site interview and then discussions with HR executive.

    Phone screen was average and explained the role and requirements.
    On site interview was tough as they look for all the basics for the role.

    Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Standard phone screen first, followed up with about half a day of interviews. This was for a firmware engineering position for a SOC type of architecture. The questions on site is mostly technical and focused a lot on how you would solve a particular problem. I find it really refreshing because a lot of interviews tends to focus on "do you know what this volatile keyword do?" which is useful but doesn't really gauge a candidate's capability. They focused far more on problem solving skills, asking questions and debug scenarios on things you have not done before, on how you solved prior difficult situations at your previous experience, etc. Be prepared to think outside of the box. I also find that the people who did the interview are very sharp and smart engineers and that is a major plus in the decision process. It was a really good and engaging process but you should definitely be prepared to be challenged.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interview questions was to give a real-life debug scenario on a processor/platform that I have not worked on before. I find the question to be challenging and actually really enjoyed the process of going through the debug. I would rate it as a hard question but overall a really great experience.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    STAY AWAY --- Standard process, Hr questions, technical questions, on-site. The HR representative was UNETHICAL UNPROFESSIONAL through out the process. Didn't disclose offer details even when repeatedly asked, didn't address concerns, I gave my reasons (2X) why offer would be accepted/rejected. HR guy PUSHED for verbal acceptable saying details will be disclosed in the offer. I was lied to when offer came in, items discussed where eliminated and what I agreed too was completely different to what was written. Sent response declining written offer with explanation, HR guys response was to never contact him. Absolutely unethical and unprofessional behavior from a person representing a company, no class.
