    Senior R&D Packaging Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Was doing a collaborative project with Intel as one of my projects in my Ph.D., towards the end of the Ph.D. program I gave my resume and business card to one of the team members we where working with. I selected to talk to one of the newest members of that group (he was only a year or two out of a Ph.D. program himself). So that guy knows the struggle of transitioning from Ph.D. program to industry. 3 months later I got a phone call to schedule a technical interview. After the 30min tech phone interview a month later I was scheduled for an on sight interview. The on sight interview is as follows: 7 one on one interviews, plus a 1 hour presentation over my Ph.D. research (40 mins was me talking, 20 mins was questions randomly ask while I was presenting), and a 1 hour lunch with a one on one interview the whole time. I would say 10% of the interview's questions where HR type questions where they where trying to gauge your behavior and personality traits. 80% was technical questions all from my resume or presentation. 10% was problem solving questions where they give you a random problem and see how you would go about solving it.

    Interview Questions

    • So pro tip. I brought a print out of my presentation with me during my interview. I could get most of the one on one's to focus on my resume/ presentation. Bring the interview questions into an area of science/engineering that I have been working on the past 4 years. My interview experience was 80% technical questions from my resume and presentation because I did my best to shift it that way.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in September 2016.

    Interview

    We had an information session at my university, at the end of which anyone interested in the position handed in their resumes. Received an e-mail around 10 pm that night for an interview the next morning. The on-campus interview was scheduled for thirty minutes, however, I was only asked questions for about 10 minutes, and the rest of the time I asked questions. Still waiting to hear back about the on-site interview.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Time consuming and not well organized. It appeared that the company requires many guideline minimums to be met for each candidate resulting in overhead. Some interviewers were not well prepared or indifferent.

However, after a week, they told me that they are unable to get export license necessity for me so no offer. It's bad luck with export license. This export license required for numbers of controlled country like China, Russia, Vietnam, Myanmar, N Korea,...
