    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly average as with all companies. The post interview to offer took a few days. The hiring manager gave me a verbal offer very quickly. However, from offer to on board, it took 3 months. I was hoping to start immediately, but due to a 1 month visa delay, I could not. As for the other 2 months, I have no idea what the administrative side was doing. I made several attempts to micromanage the situation, but they insisted that the delays were inevitable.

    I was close to being financially crippled, due to living conditions in California, before they finally set a solid start date. I was not too happy with the amount of delay cause by the company itself, considering they understood that I had no income for that time being and could not take up another job due to work visa constraints.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    Met a recruiting at an interview event. He was the only one there - after announcing he had positions in my area - clearly backed away from that when I approached him. Was surprised at him saying they don't hire from my company. Was surprised at his feedback overall. Not a good representative for your organization if you're trying to attract strong talent. Or perhaps - people over 25.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions - basically told me they don't hire from my company, they hire most of HR internally. Gave the example of hiring an engineer who has "people skills" to do HR (I interpret AKA - party planners). I was completely baffled. Clearly - no strategic HR - so if that is what you are looking for - stay away. I know I am now.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Job duty is dull, and locks in for ten years to be an expert in one thing. Also concern of layoff and unable to deliver for the high expectations.

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed through the Red Carpet event. Everyone was kind and informative. I did multiple 1 hour interviews with individuals or small panels. The questions were based on my resume. They did give a programming exam to test my skill level. It's a very unique way of interviewing, but it is a good way to meet many people from Intel. That way you can see if it's the right company for you.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the components in a computer and where are they located?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate. I'd recommend at least coming in with your important demands. You'll most likely compromise, but if you don't ask you'll never know.
