    Analog Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was good. Most of the interviewers seemed to like me - except for the hiring manager (it seems). He was bit arrogant or let's just say that he wanted to hear the answers that he wanted to - without giving any regard to any other answers that might have been better to his existing design questions. I think because layoffs were in the air, back in June-July of 2016, he shrugged off saying that they have a "hiring freeze". Would have been a nightmare if I had to work under him. The process took 3 weeks.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Received two responses to my online application via email after about 2 weeks from a member of the team and the leader of the team. Each setup a time for a phone/video interview. The team leader also assigned a non-trivial computer vision assignment to complete before the interview. The interview with a member of the team lasted just over an hour. It was composed of a overview of Intel and the team and a discussion about low-level image data processing. The interviewer seemed less interested my knowledge of the topic (I'm more familiar with use of images after they are in the rgb colorspace) and more about the ability to parse and critically think about an area I didn't know much about. There was also a surprise share-screen coding problem. Interviewer was not particularly interested in previous projects, work experience, or behavior.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly average as with all companies. The post interview to offer took a few days. The hiring manager gave me a verbal offer very quickly. However, from offer to on board, it took 3 months. I was hoping to start immediately, but due to a 1 month visa delay, I could not. As for the other 2 months, I have no idea what the administrative side was doing. I made several attempts to micromanage the situation, but they insisted that the delays were inevitable.

    I was close to being financially crippled, due to living conditions in California, before they finally set a solid start date. I was not too happy with the amount of delay cause by the company itself, considering they understood that I had no income for that time being and could not take up another job due to work visa constraints.
