    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I first started off as an Intern in the Firmware Team doing NvMe products. At the conclusion of my internship, the management was satisfied with my level of performance and directly offered me a full-time firmware engineer position in the same team.

    Further I moved to another team within Intel doing Mobile devices. The interview was a brief technical summary of my previous position followed by a series of Operating systems, Driver development related questions. I was hired after that interview into my current position.

    Positive Experience
    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
