    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Senior ASIC/Layout Design Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Corporate Development M&A Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Received an initial call from a company recruiter. After that screening it took approximately 2 weeks to connect with a Director. After this I waited another 2 - 3 weeks to have a call with a second director. I had that call and then... AMD slipped into a coma. Never heard anything back. Not even "Boo".

    I ended up taking a CFO role elsewhere. I figured this lazy and apathetic of a interview processes was evidence of a cultural pathology.

    Interview Questions

    • 1.) "You are aware that we have some challenges. What would you change?" Well, OK! After first pressing upon the interviewer that I was not an informed position to propose specific remedies and changes, I was pressed again to provide some strategic changes.

      2.) What do you know about SOC and wafer fabrication.
