    Interview

    Received a call from a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Apple. Was contacted by a recruiter. He arranged for a 1 hour phone interview with a hiring manager. After that I was invited to the corporate campus for an interview consisting of 8 30-minute long interviews with various engineers and managers. A week after the interview, I was informed that they had selected another candidate, which I do appreciate. I was also given feedback by the recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Part of the problem with Intel's interview style is that you tend to get asked the same questions over and over by different people who didn't have a chance to hear you answer previously. Also 30 minutes per person isn't really enough time to get to know one another   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Frequently has hiring freezes. The frequency and duration has increased in the last 5 to 8 years. Don't expect hiring to happen quickly. Company likes to promote and grow from within, albeit most engineers are more likely to be silo'd into the same position for >3 years.

    Interview Questions

    • College Rush candidates should prepare for the gauntlet of tests. Often abstract problem solving questions are particularly used and are tough. For example... you are standing in a boat holding a rock. You throw the rock into the water. Does the boat sit higher or lower in the water.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really isn't much of a negotiation. They have a paint-by-the-numbers formula for pay and benefits. Based mostly on years of experience, degree level. If you're experienced, but don't have a degree you're lucky to get the job. And if you didn't go to a big-name college don't expect the degree you have to count for too much towards starting salary and bonus target.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Albuquerque, NM) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of a phone screen. I had interned before so not sure if that was why it was easier. They asked me simple V=IR questions, some C++ easy question trying to figure out what a particular function did, and I think identifying a logic gate's function (it was an AND gate). Also they asked some unix command - what does the following command do (it was the find command with a list of arguments)

    Interview Questions

    • Hardest was probably figuring out what a peice of code did since variable names were not descriptive (it was just var1, var2)   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They just made me an offer and I took it

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    I was interviewed through phone for Product Development Engineer Intern position. The main idea of the interview was mainly regarding technical questions in computer architecture and programming topics and see if I was able to work and communicate it through.

    Make sure to review your truth table, logic gates, and programming concepts that you have lost touched on for any software engineering positions.

    Unfortunately, few weeks later, the group lost their funding so they couldn't hire interns.

    Overall, it was a great experience and I enjoyed the interview with the interviewer.
