    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview

    We had an R&D lead from the Dry Etch team in Hillsboro, OR visit our campus and take walk-in interviews after his presentation. That went well, and I was called for an on-site interview when I followed up with them 3-4 weeks later (They had asked me to follow up with them if I didn't hear back in that much time).

    I was given a detailed description of what to expect for the interview process. I was to give a 45-minute presentation of my Master's thesis work to a group of employees there. That would be followed by 4 rounds of interview - one technical, one HR, one lunch and one engineering manager.

    The day started off poorly, the employee who was to pick me up to take me to the presentation room was some 20 minutes late, and for some reason my laptop wouldn't connect to their projector, delaying my start even further. I'd lost track of time by then and wasn't told how long I should finally present for. I was apparently going a bit slowly since one of the people in the audience asked me to speed up, at one point. One of them also slept for quite a good portion of the presentation, which was very distracting but I tried to go on, ignoring him. But for the time issue, I was able to present my work reasonably well and answer their questions as well. Thought it could've been better overall, but I felt I did a decent job given the unplanned time limitation.

    After that, I had the two main rounds of interview. Each of them asked me both technical and behavioral questions, but each focusing on one kind mainly. All questions in these two rounds were directly from my resume, technical questions from specific research projects, and behavioral questions giving general situations I would've faced in these and how I would've responded, etc.

    The lunch was more of a casual discussion than an interview, it lasted for quite a while and went on very well. The final round was much shorter than the other two, and was also less of an interview than it was an exchange of organizational expectations and the candidate's goals, covering whatever all the previous people had missed out on.

    All of these interview rounds went pretty well for me, I couldn't possibly have done any better, and I felt I must've come off as pretty impressive. I was rejected after 5 days, and unfortunately, they don't provide any interview feedback. I am guessing probably the presentation wasn't good enough, as I can't think of any other place where I was lacking.

    Interview Questions

    • All technical questions were from my previous experiences - they would have my resume in their hand while talking. Behavioral questions were mostly standard, nothing unexpected.   Answer Question

    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!

The interview was a week later and the company paid for all my travel expenses. Now it has been 2 weeks since the interview and i still haven't heard back.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone interview:
    Got a phone interview with a manager two days after I submitted my application. The interview was technical/behavior related, pretty straight forward. Be ready for the questions about trouble-shooting skills and equipment you have handled during graduate school. At the end of the call, I was invited for an on-site interview which was scheduled two weeks after the phone call.

    Onsite interview:
    Like everyone mentioned here, it was a all day process (8:30am-4:30pm). It started with the manager who did the phone interview with me. He quickly ran down the schedule for the day and talked more about the responsibilities and expectations (on-call duty) of the job. The following interview includes an 1-hour thesis presentation, 2-hour lunch, and 6 one-hour sessions with different managers. They really focused on trouble-shooting skill, handling equipment and conflict. During the 2- hour lunch, it was really a great opportunity for you to ask questions about the job, intel, work-life balance. Everyone I talked to was very nice, they made sure I felt comfortable and asked if I needed water or need to go to bathroom multiple times.

    At the end of the day, I was told I would hear back with results between 4-6 weeks. At the end of 5th week, I got email asking for background check information and visa status. After 7 weeks, I got the phone call to discuss about the offer, and the offer next day. I did not negotiate because the offer itself is very competitive.

    I had multiple recruiters reached out to me for the offer which is a bit confusing. Just want to put it out here that you might expect to be contacted by different recruiters during the process for the same position.

    Overall, it was a great experience. I felt comfortable and relax during the interview. Everyone who interviewed me seems happy to work there. I also saw people in the hall way and they all looked satisfied.

    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.
