Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor.

Interview

The interview lasted for 5-6 hours and included lunch at a nearby restaurant. I met with 6 different people and discussed much of their needs and what they would be looking for from me if I got the job. There was a technical portion of the interview that went over my skill set and tested my knowledge of the job required skills.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There was an online test consisting of aptitude and technical mcqs of average level after which there was one F2f interview for shortlisted students on the same day.
    The shortlisted students were called for F2f interviews at their office. 4-5 rounds were conducted on the same day(technical, managerial). The director round was supposed to be conducted on the same day but didn't not happen as the manager was busy.
    We had to come to the office two days later for the director round, in pre-talk he had mentioned that he doesn't care about our previous company and the package and other stuff, but he asked questions regarding those during the interview, was hoping that the results would be announced on that day, but they said they need a weeks time to announce the results.
    They did not get back to us even after weeks, they kept delaying it, the placement cordinator also mailed them and despite that no response on the results, and finally the director mailed and told that we will inform if we get a match between our resources and your profile, we don't recruit for the sake of it like the other companies do. This took more than 3 months after the process of the interview.
    Response was given only because of the mails sent to them, otherwise do not expect any response from their side.
    Overall the people who were handling the allotment of the interview pannel were good, but the way they took time to announce results (only upon being asked) is not acceptable , hope they improve on that and look from an job applicants point of view and recruit only when they need people who match their requirements and not conduct interviews and recuirt no one.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Cypress Semiconductor (Bengaluru (India)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, I got call after some days and called for face to face interview. 4 round interview.
    1. face to face with director - mostly technical - C, strings programs, bitwise manipulations, linked list questions 2. wolf pack(group of 3 people) - they will test your patience by asking questions one by one even before you answer your previous question. 3. face to face with manager - Most of the questions related to your previous work experience, you have to be sure of what you mentioned in your resume, they will ask questions from your resume each and every thing.
    4. face to face with director of the division - It is mostly like a chat regarding your previous work, what kind of work you are going to perform etc.,

    It will take 1 or 2 weeks to get call from them whether you got accepted or not. after that it will take 2 to 3 weeks to get offer letter. For me the whole process took around 1 and half month.

    Interview

    3 rounds of technical interviews followed by HR. The wolf pack as it is called was awesome. They asked really tricky questions based on logical design. It was tough, but very informative at the same time. The interview panel kind of makes it look scary but they are very cooperative
