    Systems Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dialog Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was not standard. For intern positions, some candidates got offer just after two phone interviews. But, some, including me and my friend, went through two phone interview and a 5-hour onsite interview with very challenging questions. At that time, I was a PhD student. The stupidest question was that the manager asked me to use a multi-meter to test voltages. It was obvious that they looked down on me.

    Interview Questions

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dialog Semiconductor (Campbell, CA) in May 2015.

    The interview is not quite fair. Some interviewers asked very specific questions about a circuit. Some were much nicer. I was unlucky, because I was interviewed by the toughest manager in this group.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dialog Semiconductor (Istanbul (Turkey)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I have directly sent my CV to Analog Team Lead at the time which I have formerly known in my previous company. It took some time for the recruiter of the company to call me back for an interview.

    At the beginning of the interview, the interviewers - the team lead and the most experienced layout engineer - asked me to answer their questions on board but I preferred to use paper and pen on the table. I answered all their questions. At the end of the interview, the team lead told me that he was positive about me but was concerned if I would be interested in the salary or not. Later the design center manager entered into the room and informed me about the salary and benefits.

    Interview Questions

    • What layout work I have done in my last job. General concepts of analog layout such as latch-up, well proximity, matching, coupling etc.   1 Answer

    The interviewer was kind of friendly, asked me questions about my resume, asked some basic questions in circuit theory,i.e. inductors and capacitors. Then he moved on to control theory and small signal model. The position requires a lot of power electronics background since it's to design an LED driver.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dialog Semiconductor.

    Interview

    Onsite interview is very organized. There are around 8 people from 9:30am to 7:00pm. They ask very basic questions about RC filter and let me explain the project in my resume. I think they don't care much about the exact answer but how you think of it. As long as you can explain the things from your understanding, they will be very happy.
