    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Altera (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    two 30 minutes technical rounds. Interviewer went to the point directly.

    I would suggest everyone to practice coding of Data structures and Algorithms in c/c++.

    Question are mostly easy, but solution to that should strike to you as fast as possible. So, even practicing basic data structure operations and algorithms would work. But, make sure you know how to code.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Altera (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two interviews with two different software engineers- each 30 minutes long, one question per interview. Questions pretty simple algorithm wise and you have to write the solution on white board or paper. Be careful not to waste time at this stage with question about the company or anything else (including any interaction with the interviewer) otherwise you won't have the time to actually solve the question because you have exactly 30 minutes and not a minute more.

    Interview

    I applied online at Altera website, got an email for initial HR interview on the phone after 1 week. It was only for 10 minutes. They asked about my previous experience and asked me tell a good debugging story.

    Later got an email in 2 days for on-site interview at Altera Toronto office. It was with 2 engineers, half an hour each. They were both friendly and didn't talk much about my past experiences or stuff on resume, jumped right into technical stuff first asked about my master's thesis and algorithm/code design questions.
