    Had a phone interview. I already knew the person who was interviewing me from previous job. So we just had a chat about what my masters degree was about and talk about the current projects that he was working on. It was pleasant.

    Interview

    Applied through a contact, unexpectedly got the interview as my profile was Analog/Mixed Signal Design and the position is a characterization position. The phone interview lasted 45mins to 1hour. On the phone interview most questions where on my Masters Research topic. On site consisted of 6 rounds. 4 back to back till lunch and then other 2, each round consisted of 45mins with a different person in each round. Questions were fairly in depth and one or two rounds were basically on my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything related to MOS Physics, OP Amp basics, Voltage Reference Design, Layouts, integrated passive elements. One round was on RF LNA and Transceiver Design only because it was on my resume.   1 Answer
    • study all small dimension effects, leakage currents, layouts, variability questions, Miller effect,etc   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was terrible, as I had no other offers I was not in a position to negotiate. Although I tried for an increase I did not get any. Initially it seemed I got low balled into accepting,but later on I realized the offer was fair.Make sure that the offer that they are giving is reasonable, in my case it was reasonable so I wasn't in any position to ask for more and not look greedy

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    One phone screening and two technical phone interviews. Each technical interview lasted about an hour and had 2-3 questions. There is no shared screen or anything so you verbally describe your algorithms. Unfortunately both of my interviewers had heavy accents, and I had trouble understanding them, but they were both very patient.

    Interview Questions

    • Processes vs threads, inner vs outer join, the difference between clustering and classification   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    My 3 main reasons for declining the offer:

    1) This was a summer internship position, and they didn't make me an offer until mid-May. By that time I had already made other plans for the summer. If the offer had come earlier, I probably would have accepted.

    2) It was not clear how the hiring process worked or who my point of contact was. After I completed one step I didn't know what would happen next or how long it would take. After my first technical interview I didn't hear anything from them for 2 weeks. I didn't know who to email to ask what was going on. I assumed they had decided to not move forward and neglected to tell me, so I was surprised when I was contacted for a second interview.

    3) A few times they CC'd the dean of my school on their emails to me. I was very uncomfortable with this and felt like my privacy had been violated. Intel told my dean when I declined their offer and I got an email from him asking why. It was very unprofessional.
