    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor (Austin, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed in Austin, the headquarter. 5 interviewers from different groups, most of them asked general questions. And some questions from my resume. Not that hard. And before that, I prepared a lot of questions for embedded system. But it seems not useful.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor (Anaheim, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I found them at a convention, they almost turned me away by giving me the old apply online scheme, and then I blurted out my experience related to the position and they signed me up for an interview. They seem to want people that demonstrate interest in their company and have an idea of what they want to do with Freescale.
