    Contract Software Engineering Position Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    This was an on-site interview for a 6-month contract position. My resume had been forwarded by a recruiter. Although a contract position was not my primary objective, I wanted to get more practice interviewing and to see if the interviewing/hiring process for a temporary position would be different. The hiring manager came to fetch me in the lobby and apparently expected someone different as he had to ask the person at reception to point me out. We went to a small interview room, where he started asking me about my experience while reviewing my resume on his laptop. He soon cut me short to try to find group members to interview me, who arrived after a few minutes, upon which the hiring manager left. One of the two interviewers started with questions to determine better which level of the software stack I had been programming at, asked me for a block diagram, asked me to describe some of the APIs exported by the system I had worked with, etc. The interviewer tended to change the question midway through my answer, and this went on and on. He seemed impatient with the pace of my answers. The other engineer was reading from her laptop (my resume? her email?). After some minutes of being bombarded with questions without being able to answer any of them to completion, I paused and said maybe we should stop the interview. At that point, the questioner backed off a bit and his companion took over. We did some white board programming. They answered the few questions I had and left, whereupon the hiring manager returned and gave me a final white-board programming problem. Soon he was done and escorted me back to the entrance. The white-board programming questions were not too bad, but overall the experience was dreadful because of the way I was bombarded with questions by the one interviewer. Besides that, they were visibly not interested in me as a candidate. In my opinion they conveyed a terrible impression of the company. Furthermore, the layout of the building was unappealing: white walls, narrow hallways, small rooms. A nightmare that left me feeling trashed afterwards for the rest of the day.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was a telephonic interview. They called me and asked me about the position that applied for. It was a lady. She was very polite and firm. She enquired whether I was ready to take a telephonic interview on the very next day at a given time. I said okay. Next day, she called me at the exact time as she told and started with personal questions like the usual 'Tell me about yourself, How interested are you for the post etc and after about 10 to 15 minutes she started asking me the technical questions. First few questions were directly linked to my M.Tech main project, she seemed to be very familiar with my project subject and was very interested to know more. After that she switched to the basic questions like type of semiconductors, CMOS, MOSFET, current equation etc.
    She was very friendly and supportive through out the interview process. Asked me to relax and drink water in between. The entire process lasted for about 30 minutes.
