    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied thru the campus fair. On the same day, i got the phone call for the next day 30 min campus interview. It went well and the hiring manager said she will definitely recommend me. In two weeks, I received an email for scheduling another phone interview. It went well too and on that day onsite invitation came to my email. I am scheduled for the on site interview about 2 weeks. It is an intern but they rather want someone who can continue working afterwards. I said so and the hiring procedure seems much like a full time one. So far they only asked my projects and work experience. I expect to have some technical questions on site.

    First of all, they booked me a motel, and a compact car. I have 5 more interviews with other companies, and Cypress is the only one who booked a motel and a compact car. The on-site interview was really long. It continued from AM 9:00 to PM 5:15. I was so exhausted after that.

    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (Troy, NY).

    Interview

    Interview heavily based on logical operation using AND, OR, NOR, XOR, and other Boolean logic. little to no behaviorial questions. It was basically a final exam in computer orginization. They expected you to know everything and treated themselves like the kings of the Sram market - which they are far from.

    Interview Questions

    • "Use this diagram to determine the appropriate output"
      "At what time would this condition arise in this clk circuit"
      "what logical components would be needed to increment a counter and provide a negated output"   Answer Question

    Yield Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (Bloomington, MN) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of 3 rounds, 1 hour each

    1st round was 1:1 with the hiring group manager with behavioral questions with some technical questions.
    I believe the technical questions were easy enough for a person with the right background (I had quite different background). Typical question were on DOE, SPC, semiconductors.

    2nd round was 1:1 with another manager of Fault detection group. He asked more detailed technical questions on semiconductor manufacturing process and process control techniques.

    3rd round was with a panel of 3:1, all technical people. Asked about my research and some other questions similar to previous rounds to test fundamentals of quality control etc.

    Overall impression: Positive, Nice friendly people. Open work culture and interviewers seemed satisfied with their positions.
