    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Inphi (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    Recruiter was very professional and the process was well streamlined. There was a phone screen, followed by two rounds of interviews, one with the hiring manager and other with a larger team. Many people from different functions asked questions about their areas. They were well coordinated to get background in many relevant areas.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Inphi (Westlake Village, Los Angeles, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    On the phone, I spoke with the engineering team and the sales team. Sales side, spoke with my boss, then his boss, and then at the end of it all, his boss (which'd be the CEO). Engineering side, I spoke with the lead engineers of the product lines I'd be involved with. General questions about knowledge of the product field and the industry. Then had a face-to-face with my boss. We got along well, so that was that. I was referred personally, so it wasn't especially high-pressure. Then a quick final approval by the CEO.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the lead engineers did a fairly thorough grilling of my knowledge of electronics and signalling. Began simple ("Tell me everything you know about jitter"), and then got more specific. If you're qualified you'll do fine.   1 Answer
