    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was for a Co-Op position for technical marketing.

    The first step was a phone interview. It started with general questions, and then narrowing down the focus to PSoC. I had some prior experience so I was asked about the projects I had done. They dug deeper into that and asked varied questions on general MCU components.

    On the marketing side, were general questions which tested how good I was at getting the complete picture and my marketing skills.

    I was then asked to develop a business case, and also a simple PSoC project, and had to submit it in a few days.

    This followed with another phone interview similar to the first one, but taken by another person.

    Interview Questions

    • There is nothing in particular that was difficult. I was tested on general concepts. They were looking for quick-thinking, flexible and smart people, who are also familiar with Cypress products.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was fixed already.

    wolfpack interview...about 7-8 people interviewed me. Regular marketing/pricing/interpersonal skills questions.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interviewers grilled me a lot! But later I learnt that you could expect that from at least one of the interviewers. The best technique is to just answer the questions precisely when you know this is happening.   Answer Question
