    Component Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Phone screened for about 45 minutes with a follow up onsite interview. The interview consisted of 7 one-on-one interviews. It seemed as if there was not coordination as many of the interviewers asked the same question and many asked questions outside of my domain experience (which I was explicit about going into the interview).

    Interview Questions

    • Diagram the frequency response of a signal after it has been passed through a 2X interpolation filter.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The total compensation was not competitive relative to other offers.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I had 1 hour of Phone interview for the pre silicon verification. The person who interviewed me was a nice and very experienced person. He was more into RTL coding.

    One Digital logic question (Pretty easy one)
    This was for a Recent College Graduate position.

    Good luck!

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    First, recruiter recommendation plus resume revisions. Second, a phone interviews and in formal meetings. Third, on site interview with internal team members and the main contact.

    The company seems to be driven to promote from the inside, which is both a plus and a minus. Coming in as a lateral, it seemed as though I would have faced large hurdles I was forewarned of the company's general siloing, and institutional patterns that make it perhaps difficult to change. I enjoyed the idea of working with smart people, but did not relish that if they had well-established turfs that they were defending.

    I did not pursue this opportunity very hard the further I was exposed to the environment, and that was obviously noted.

    Legal Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Phone call, 1:1 in person, and then a round of in person interviews. Very interesting, cutting edge work. The position changed in scope over time. I was led to believe that I would get the job, and then did not, due to the changed scope. The people were very nice, professional, laid back. The atmosphere was cold. Labyrinths of of drab cubicles, lots of Lenovo ThinkPads, limited facilities for food, beverages or snacks. Seemed like the building would be a tough place for a creative person to work. It was very different from a typical Silicon Valley startup (ironic, since Intel is the ultimate Silicon Valley success story).

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpectedly easy questions. I would have liked to have been challenged so that I could have shined brighter.   Answer Question
