    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was for the position of Co-op engineer for the Spring semester. I had submitted my resume to University Relations long back and seeing a match for my academic projects with the job requirement, the Hiring Manager called me first and took phone interview. It was a perfect match for my projects and the work that I would have to do at AMD. So he was pretty much convinced and told me an other senior engineer would take me interview. There was time constraints so this happened 2 days later and the senior engineer asked mostly technical questions from C++, Verilog, Computer Architecture, Algorithms and also told me to explain the Academic projects in detail. The interview lasted an hour. I think they were impressed by me, So I got the offer by the next day.

    • What is the difference between blocking and nonblocking assignments ?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As this was for Internship, there was no negotiating. AMD offers very competitive salary for interns along with relocation bonus which was very good.
