    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AMD.

    Interview

    First round screening interview was fine and standard.

    Second round I was supposed to talk to one person, ended up being two - fine. Except instead I didn't get to speak at all so there was no point in me interviewing and they could have just decided based on my resume.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at AMD.

    Interview

    My interview was really was not an interview because I was converted to FTE from a contract position. This is a very common practice at AMD. However, hiring managers are still required to post the open job req to the public. This is unfortunate for the people who apply for a job that technically has already been filled.

    Principal Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was mostly technical in nature comprising of 7 45-minute sessions including lunch. They start a bit early at ~9.00am (compared to other interviews I had) which I found preferrable than a later start. The sessions are not extremely rigid with regards to time and they could vary depending on the depth of discussion in any one session. Overall, the interviewers were very courteous and professional in their demeanor.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AMD (Gainesville, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Received a telephonic interview from the team lead. He wanted someone to join immediately within a week. He mostly talked about what the company and asked very few questions. I guess because he wanted an immediate hire, the questions were very specific to what he was looking fir rather than testing my knowledge in that area. But overall a positive experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible experience. I applied to AMD through their website for this position, then get contacted by a talent recruiter up in Canada that was an AMD employee. Hear nothing for a few weeks and get a call from an Indian man in California that worked for Tata Consultancy Services... He had ALL my info because AMD gave it to them with out my permission. Along with this I could hardly understand him and ended up somehow scheduling a call back from one of the contractors working for AMD. Come to find out they were contacting me for a lower position and were attempting to persuade me that I'd be an AMD employee even though I'd be on contract through Tata Consultancy Services.
    AMD, fix your hiring process, if I wanted to work for some crap consulting company, I would had applied to them, not you.
