    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Broadcom (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After an initial phone screen interview, this was followed by an on site interview. I thought the interview was impersonal and just technical. Each interviewer asked technical questions immediately, without any discussion of position or what their responsibility was within the organization. After a day of this, I wouldn't want to work there anyway.
