Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AMD in May 2013.

6 telephonic interviews.

    Application

    I interviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The resume was forwarded by an internal contact. So, the interview setup/scheduling was relatively quick over email.
    3 rounds of interview: two with the team members and one with the director.

    The interview with ~7 team members was mainly technical. Question on:
    Digital design principles: setup/hold times and ways to address setup/hold time issues, state machines, finding issues with digital circuits, other logic design questions
    C: handling different endianness, embedded C code optimization issues
    System Verilog questions
    Logical puzzles

    After the first two rounds the hiring manager indicated that the feedback was good and he would like me to come in to meet the director.

    It took about 2 weeks from that point to receive an offer

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was really difficult but some of the questions on System Verilog were very specialized /infrequntly used cases.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX) in February 2008.

    Interview

    My recruiter worked with the hiring manager to arrange for my interview. The whole process goes pretty smoothly. They asked some basic questions, not very deep. The only thing is that after the on-site interview, they didn't gave me a quick response. It turned out that they were interviewing several other peoples and try to decided which one is the best. I communicated to them that I cannot wait very long and I am considering other opportunities. Immediately the HR manager called me up and told me that I was their best candidate and made the offer.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Interview

    AmjadKhan, I am still wondering about HR process followed in AMD, How a company can ask a candidate to submit the salary documents without making sure that he will be considered. How they will consider salary to make the decision about candidate consideration. This is my first bad personal experience regarding recruitment process in an organization. I have lot respect for AMD as organization, but I never expected such silly mistakes from organization such as AMD. It is always professionalism to reply to mail if it is conveyed that it will be replied in certain time. I hope the HR team in AMD will be more sincere with candidates in future. They should respect a candidate then only they will get respect from them and I personally feel you need improvement as a HR manager.
