    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Materials (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    First was a phone screen for 15 min. It could have been longer for me, but I told my interviewer that I had to rush to a class after that. I was asked questions on my resume. I got an onsite call within 5 days.

    The onsite had 4 rounds of interviews lasting 1hr each. Each interviewer was either a engineering manager or a member of technical staff. I found all the interviewers intelligent and smart. Since C++ is heavily used here, prepare that part well.
