    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA).

    Interview

    I got referred by an acquaintance to the Windows OS team at Folsom. The overall interview process was around 3-4 weeks. I had an initial round of phone interview which concentrated on general operating system concepts.

    I was invited for an onsite interview at Folsom, CA. It was the worst experience that I have had in an interview. I think that the decision regarding hiring was made well before actually even interviewing me. There were 7 rounds of technical interviews. First round was good with generic discussion about my projects, operating system concepts etc. Second round was by an engineer with no proper communication skills, he was rude, unwilling to hear to my approach to problems. This was supossed to be a x86 coding round when I had no where listed that on my resume.

     Most of the rounds were primarily concentrated on computer architecture when I had very limited knowledge on the same. The interviewers seems very inconsiderate of the fact that I was a computer science student and not a CE student.

    The lunch interview was a pain, right from the moment we left the meeting room, till we came back the interviewer was constantly asking questions, with very limited time given to even have my food. I was expected to code on paper even the lunch interview round which seemed pretty insane to me.

    The worst part was the same team at Hillborough had no CE questions at all that were asked while interviewing the candiates.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between pentium 4 pipeline and RISC pipeline. What is the first instruction that the CPU executes. Write the PIN diagram of 8086 processor.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Initial contact was via email. Which lead to an initial phone screening/interview. Then 3 days later I had two phone interviews for two different departments. The first interview was more about professional development, different situations at work and how to work through adversity, and also touching base on how overcome obstacles with limited resources. The second interview was more technical and asking alot about previous projects, coding style, lab experience, and asked about tradeoffs and benefits to different designs in computers and processors.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    After 2 phone interview I was flown down to Folsom CA from Washington where I met with 4 managers of the biz group I was applying with. They asked for a quick background summary and since I had worked at Intel previously asked about my prior experiences with Intel. The real interview really started when they put me through a behavioral interview and asked quite a few "what would you do in this scenario" questions. The interview atmosphere felt very open and "friendly" The managers were awesome at answering the questions I had about the biz group and the position.
