    PTD Module Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    Intel came to my school and gave a talk outlining what they do and gave us a chance to drop our resumes off. That night, I got a call for a follow up interview this next morning on campus. It was about 30 min, with me explaining my thesis work, and the manager discussing the responsibilities of the job. Afterwards, the manager told he he/she would like to invite me out to OR to do an on-site interview. Hiring manager called 2 days later to confirm.

    About 3 weeks after that, I was flown out to Portland, OR for my interview. It started at 915 am. I talked with theanager who interviewed me at my school and he/she gave me the rundown of the day. After that I gave my 1 hr thesis presentation in front of 2 junior engineers. The rest of the day consisted of 1 hr interviews with various managers of the group I was applying for. They were very similar to my on campus interview. The day ended with a meeting with the original manager, who asked me the typical interview questions that one would expect. They told me they would let me know within 3 weeks. About 1.5 weeks after that, I got the rejection email. They said that I was welcome to apply again to a different group and that my resume is still in the system in case something pops up that would suit my talents. Overall, everybody was very nice and it was a very good experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus recruiter in March 2017. The next day I received an email asking for a phone interview. The phone call lasted ~15 minutes. Half of it involved the Intel engineer telling me about the company. I was asked only one interview question: to describe one piece of equipment I have worked with. I went into as much detail as I could and was actually cut off by the interviewer for giving him more information than he needed.

    At the end of the call I was told that I would hear back after 2-3 weeks. However, the next day I received an email inviting me to an in person interview at the Hillsboro, OR site. The interview was scheduled for 2 months later in May 2017.

    The in person interview lasted all day (7:30 am to 5:30 pm) and included a fab window tour, 45 minute seminar of my PhD research, lunch, and 11 one-on-one 30 minute interviews with various engineers, group leaders, and an area manager. The one-on-one interviews were more so casual conversations, but some common questions to me included explaining my research (slide printouts from my seminar greatly helped!!), why do I want to leave my current field, why do I want to work at Intel, how do I troubleshoot malfunctioning equipment, how do I deal with conflicts, how do I deal with stress/pressure. At the end of the day, I was told I would hear back in 2-4 weeks with the results. After 4 weeks, I received an offer of employment.

    One hour presentation, followed by 4 round of half an hour interviews with lunch squeezed inbetween the 1st and 2nd one. There were technical questions on the presentation but nothing too difficult. Most people seemed easy to talk to and were frank about the expectations of the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Portland, OR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite straight forward. Intel does a really good job when it comes to interviewing. There was a presentation for 1 hour which was mainly on the research. In this presentation, they try to see the analytical skills and also what kind of approach a person takes in research. Some of the questions were quite intense and the panel asked so many questions that I was unable to finish my entire presentation. Even though the questions might make you furious, keep it calm. After this, there was one on one interviews related to technical stuff and behavioral stuff followed by a tour of the facility and the lunch. After this, there will be a managerial round which is like a mix of all these roles. If you know your research well enough you should be fine.

    All the best!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Three Part Process
    1st Part-Initial screening: forwarded my resume to an email that was circulated in our department from Intel. (All other forms of forwarding did not work!!)

    2nd Part-Technical Interview: After about one week of forwarding the resume, I received an email from one of the technical stuff asking for a technical interview. It was an hr long interview with questions from topics related to my PhD, instruments that I used, basic principles of them, troubleshooting experience, equipment ownership, problem solving etc.

    3rd part- Onsite interview: after 3 days of the technical, I was invited for an onsite interview which happened after one month. It gave me plenty of time to prepare for it. It was a day long interview with a 45 min presentation at the beginning of the day, then 30-45 mins one-one interview with different member of the technical team. It was a pleasant experience for me. I really enjoyed talking to them as it felt more like a conversation. Questions were similar to the technical interview. Make sure you know everything that you have put into your resume. During lunch, three members of the technical team escorted me and gave me a broad overview on the lifestyle, benefits, vacations, leaves, work stress etc. At the end of the day, the final interview was with hiring manager who basically gave a brief overview of the different component of TD department and how it fits into broader picture of Intel. At the end, the manager hinted me that if they would not select me, I would know by a week, otherwise, I will hear back from HR in 2-4 weeks time.
    In the 4th week, I received an offer from them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    I applied for an internship at Intel via a non-profit which helps students find internships. I was interviewed over the phone. The interview lasted 30 mins. I got a call back after 1 month and was interviewed again over the phone. The interview went very well but I never heard back from them. In fact, no one who applied for the internship via the non-profit got an offer and employees at Intel stopped responding to the non-profit.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process took about 2 months. I met the recruiter at NSBE 2017 conference and the next day got an interview with one of the hiring manager. The following week I heard from the same manager for an onsite interview. In two weeks I visited Intel Portland OR campus.

    1. Started from 8 am with meeting the same manager who interviewed me at the conference.
    2. There was an hour long presentation Ph.D. research. There were some interesting questions but basics. Most of the audience of the presentation was same who are going to take my one on one interview.
    3. After the presentation, there were 5 one -on- one interview with Managers and area managers. Overall it was very casual talking and asking about conflict managements etc. some technical questions. One interviewer did her Ph.D. somewhat similar to what I did and she went nuts asking questions but I did calm her down!!! phew....
    4. There was a two-hour lunch with process engineers. Best time to learn as much as you can about the Intel, work culture, work life balance etc.
    5. After onsite, I waited 4 weeks but haven't heard back. So, I emailed the manager who invited me for onsite. He replied saying to give them 2-4 more weeks. Eventually, after 7 weeks I got email and phone call discussing the offer and later same day the offer.
    6. Overall, it's definitely a long process. Just be patient and keep applying until you hear back from them. If you did well, you will definitely hear back!

    Interview Questions

    • Technical from the Ph.D. presentation and Behavioural:
       One Interviewer seemed very interested in nanoscale heat transfer in porous media (something he did in his Ph.D. too). That's the only 1 hour of technical questions
