    Analog/Mixed Signal Design Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    A recruiter called me randomly without any prior notice and asked for a phone interview schedule. We fixed one and I asked for an email regarding the interview schedule(so that I can add to my calendar) since I was outside in between of other work and it would be better if I have an email regarding the position details and the schedule(since we apply for 4-5 relevant positions of Intel and we do have other works too) and other big/medium companies usually email first regarding schedule instead of randomly calling at whatever time they feel.

    Before this, previously I had one more interview where the recruiter had emailed schedule regarding a position I had applied but didn't mention ANYTHING about the position(not even the position name), I emailed him twice asking regarding the details(As we apply for 4-5 profile relevant but different position roles) and confirmed him the schedule but no response. Later on, he called me on the scheduled day and started asking me question and about the position(without proper response regarding the position details, how can you expect us to answer), even this recruiter was very rude, I understand I didn't answer the questions properly and it made them behave rudely but on first place, I didn't get any response regarding the details in order to prepare.

    I feel like, I shouldn't apply for Intel anymore after facing 2 interviews in which both were rude and didn't respond properly to the first place. I have attained various other interviews and talking to numerous recruiters but never faced such a bad behavior from recruiters apart from those I mentioned above(both from Intel)

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic questions(which were easy if we come out of college or recent grad but very unexpected for an experienced candidate, since we don't need to do all that at hand calculation level everytime), Although figured out most of them but couldn't give satisfactory answers as I was rusty in few topics(my mistake too, could review those concepts because of poor time management)

      The recruiter was pretty rude too, which again was kind of demotivating, especially when we try to figure out things on which we turned rusty.   1 Answer
