    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Started with a half hour phone interview with Hiring Manager that was not technical. Second phone interview was a half hour of asking technical questions about graphics knowledge and vector math. Third interview was on site and consisted of 7 45 minute white board/technical sessions. An hour lunch was in between so I was there for a total of 6.5 hours. Questions range from C++ to graphics and everything in between. Extremely intelligent people who are very passionate about what they do so if you are similar minded then you will have fun!

    Senior Firmware Engineer, Wireless IP Group Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    This position was with the AMD wireless IP group. This was a team that was formerly a startup and had been acquired by AMD. They were working on wireless VR systems.

    Recruiter reached out. This was followed by a phone interview with hiring manager which was mostly a discussion on my background and the job position. This was followed by another technical phone interview with two engineers. I was invited on-site for about 5 one-one interviews and one lunch interview where I was answering questions in the middle of having lunch.

    Overall, all the questions during the on-site interview rounds were very straight-forward except for the second round: during this round the engineer asked a math question based on display and another buffer management question based on display again. For both the questions, it seemed like the interviewer had one particular approach/solution in mind and was not open to even discussing my solution which I had derived from scratch. He could not even explain if there were any shortcomings with my approach. This was not a good sign from my perspective: I would struggle to work with such an engineer who is very close-minded in his approach to solving problems.

    After the on-site interviews, there was no communication whatsoever in spite of multiple emails/calls to recruiter, staffing assistant etc.

    The position was relevant to my background in WiFi and I think the work would have been very interesting and challenging. But I doubt if I would want to work of a company or team that has a complete disregard for a interview candidate's time.
