    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fairchild Semiconductor.

    Interview

    Interview candidates seem to be touched by too many different people in the company before they join the company. The interview process is long and drawn out. I was contacted by the HR recruiter, scheduler and hiring manager at times, and it wasn't clear who led/owned the hiring process. This confusion continued with the offer and my first day of orientation.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There wasn't any negotiation with regard to my offer.
