    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview: 30 minutes, questions about PhD research.

    Onsite interview: Onsite interview was scheduled one month after the phone interview. Asked to report at 9:15 am. First, hiring manager who did the phone screening described the duties and responsibilities of a process engineer and briefly talked about Intel. Then, one hour long one-on-one interview with a group leader. He asked questions mostly about PhD research (similar to phone interview but more detailed). Next, one hour presentation on PhD research in front of two junior engineers. They asked only basic questions since their research background were different than mine and they took me to lunch afterwards. After lunch, another one hour long one-on-one interviews with a different group leader, questions asked were very similar to the first one. Interview with an area manager was scheduled but was canceled for unknown reason.

    Offer: One week after the onsite, received an email from fadv regarding information for background check and official offer letter came 25 days after onsite interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ).

    Interview

    Scattered but comfortable. Some canned generic questions. Behavioral and technical based on major. 4 hours long rotating with 2 interviewers each time for 1 hour. If you want you can present research the day before. Typically a manager and an engineer will conduct interview. It can be difficult to come up with different scenarios for each interviewer but that is values for behavioral questions. Free lunch usually with brief update from HR. Several areas hire at once so it will typically be a group of 4-10 people interviewing at same time as other similar sized groups.
