        Basic resume review, talked about my interests, and why I wanted to apply for the role.

Second interview: 5 engineers.
        More resume review, mostly behavioral questions.
        Asked me to talk about my shop/machining experience.

Third interview: 3 engineers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The company moved quickly from phone interview to in person interview. I had two phone interviews before being brought in. The interview on site was intense and about 4 hours (1 hour was a tour). You are bombarded with pre-defined technical questions for which many have nothing to do with the position you are applying for. Is this a PE exam? It's not that I didn't learn this stuff in engineering school but that was a long time ago and since I haven't used it, it's not fresh, although obviously in a couple of days I could be up to speed on all that. The folks doing the interview were all very young and most with large opinions of themselves. In general I would say most folks I met there are not well balanced they live to work. For this position the engineer is totally responsible if equipment in their area breaks down, is always on call, and works many hours. I decided part way through the interview the position was not for me but went along to see what else they might ask!

    • Just pull out your engineering texts and pick something, many questions related to HVAC equipment and operation, for which had nothing to do with this position.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I first applied online. One week later I recieved an email told me to set up an online interview. The interview was very easy. Most questions are behavior questions and people can find all of them through the internet. Basicly they are asking how would you deal with pressure or how do you manage your time when you are in a multi-task situation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (DuPont, WA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen, followed by a technical phone interview, and finally an all day set of onsite interviews. Everyone was very nice and professional. An enjoyable process overall. Interview questions were not particularly difficult. Worst part was the design project I had to do at home before the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Gave me a week to do a design project to be presented to a panel on the day of the interviews. Project was difficult for me as I haven't done that type of problem in about 20 years.   Answer Question
