Applications Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Altera in November 2013.

Interview

I applied online through Altera career website. Received an email from senior engineer a month later to schedule a phone interview the following week. The phone interview was a typical go over you resume and you educational experiences in digital system. Interviewer was up front about my experience and rejected me professional on the phone. The interviewer did not ask if I had any questions for him or the position, so I was left with a bitter feeling.
