    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Applied Micro Circuits (Livermore, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very positive. Hiring manager and HR Director very friendly and enthusiastic. The whole process for me took about 2 weeks. Started with phone screens, then a day in the office with interviews throughout the day (some 1-on-1 and some panel). All easy-going people. They took me to lunch. I had done my research on the company so I had a very good idea of the job and requirements

    Senior ASIC Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Micro Circuits (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Phone interview was quite brief (about 10~15min). They asked about my background and recent work, no technical questions. In a few days, they asked me to come for an onsite interview. Questions were not tough, fairly reasonable undergraduate level. I thought I did not bad, but it turned out that I should have been perfect, 'cause the questions were easy. Questions were quite fundamental things, so any missed answer might make them think I am on the shallow basis without through fundamentals.

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Applied Micro Circuits (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Multiple interviewers but they mostly asked all the same questions. The standard seemed ot be part technical knowledge & I prepped by studying their product line, but they didn't ask much in that area. The rest was process & personality. Fortunately, everyone I spoke to was pretty reasonable & felt I breezed through this area. By was of reference, byt the time I was called in, my impression was the job was mine unless I screwed up the interview or didn't get along with one of the interviewers.
