Interview

It was for an intern position, so the questions were pretty basic. They asked about my projects and my past experience with firmware development. I had a bit of experience so i explained about that. they usually just see how you know your projects and what understanding you have on it.

    Interview

    Received call for phone screen in december. Lasted for 15 min and received email for onsite next day. Due to Christmas, scheduled call in Jan (I think in mean time, they found someone else!). Interview day was full of silly questions. One interviewer even asked me to draw architecture of system I was working on during internship at other company!! Another interviewer asked me, why I didn't apply to other Intel site? and rest were behavioral questions..tell me what would you do in this or that..In the end told me this job requires creativity and imagination, while telling this interviewer was yelling !!! Next day received email of reject.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Longmont, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was a phone interview. Lync meeting. The interviewer was low-key, and asked questions that started easy but got progressively harder.
    The in-person was out of state, so I was flow in. I had a 5 person interview, one after the other. While some of the interviews were certainly more personality focused, every interviewer (except for the lunch interview) had me write code on the board. I am an EE major, and so I had to study extensively for the interview, but it paid off.
    My number one piece of advice is to study the basics you learned a long time ago. It's the fundamentals (for fresh out of University students) that they want to see.
    Put only things on your resume that you can talk about in great detail.

    Interview Questions

    • Bit checking a 32 bit number, recursive searching of binary trees. Writing unit tests for simple code algorithms. After writing code, was asked to optimize it. All questions were C.
      Also, they wanted details about my Sr. project (which was FW for an embedded system).   2 Answers
