Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Freescale Semiconductor in November 2014.

Interview

There was an online application and a phone interview. The online application is similar to most other online applications, and you can include a cover letter. If you know or are connected to a manager at Freescale, they can expedite the interview process.

    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.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation because I'm a fresh graduate
