Applications Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chandler, AZ
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in March 2015.

Interview

One day after applying on website was contacted and phone screened by hiring manager.. One week later invited in for panel interview. Hiring manager stated he would make decision over next week, then instead of making decision delayed indefinitely.. and never heard back from them. Kind of shabby process for a company that seems to care about it's image.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed over the phone for half an hour by the hiring manager. Call went well so I was taken in for an on-site interview which went on from 9-2pm approximately. I had another offer from just the week before, so I asked the manager to give me a decision within 2 weeks, and I got an offer the same week.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    A phone screen interview was initially done before being invited to come in for an in person. The on-site Interview was done with the entire team, from the manager in addition to four other people. Only one of my interviews was very technical, the others more behavioral. Response to my results and offer post interview came within one week after the in person interview.

    Negotiation

    Very straight forward with an offer letter. Little room for negotiation. Lower base salary than I would have liked but the total compensation package including RSUs and health benefits sealed the deal for me.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    Was invited to an interview on their facility. Initial meeting was friendly. They went straight into technical questions in another room with a whiteboard. Grilled me hard and poor reception.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked 3-5 questions. The questions were beyond my skillset at that point in time. They took poor consideration in making applicable questions based on my skills. First two questions were about digital logic, which I had not taken. The last question was creating code about a deck of cards.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Online application followed by an invitation to an assessment day. The assessment day begins with an initial reception where you meet all the other candidates. This is followed by a schedule brief from the Hiring manager. You will be given a personal timetable which consists of the times/rooms for each interview and activity of the assessment day. There are two interviews: one behavioural/one technical. Then a final group assessment The behavioural interview involves drawing relevant examples from your past experience to demonstrate your approach to different situations. The Technical interview is slightly more intense than the behavioural interview as the interviewers are trying to gauge exactly how much you know and how far your skills go. You will be asked to elaborate on the technical skills listed on your CV and to demonstrate them. Your group assessment will require you assert your problem solving and team working skills. For my group assessment I was blindfolded and given 4 differently shaped and coloured objects. As a group we were told that for each candidate there should be 5 of each shape in 5 different colours. And between us, 2 of the objects are missing overall. So, we had to work together to work out what the missing objects were. I was one of the people with a missing object. We got 45mins for this exercise but it doesnt take that long.

    Interview Questions

    • The technical interview was the most demanding part of the day in comparison to everything else.During the fixed part of this interview I was shown a computer motherboard and then asked to demonstrate my knowledge of its architecture by 1) Identifying all the main components 2) Identifying the function of all the main components 3) Describing the typical boot-up sequence of a Computer (CPU, BIOS etc)
      The rest of the interview was a discussion directed by the technical skills laid out in my CV.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    it depends on what job you are going for. Applications engineers need to have a high level skill in every aspect of the product, nothing too far in depth. Be good at problem solving, multitasking and good with people.

    Negotiation

    My boss would not budge at all. But it didn't hurt to ask for more... you'd be stupid not to. they wont rescind the offer.
