Software Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation.

Interview

Applied prior to a career fair and was given a phone screen a week in advance. The phone screen was to ask about my background and speak to my resume. Reasonably straightforward.

At the career fair, I met with various hiring managers across different groups where I was asked to talk to my resume but it felt like they were more pitching their group to me rather than asking about my skillset.

Once the hiring managers decided they wanted to proceed, I had a phone interview with a technical lead where I was asked various questions about machine learning and higher level languages (c++). My background is in Java but I have an understanding of c++.

After about a week, I was contacted by the hiring manager letting me know that he was going to put in for an offer for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    applied online, got a call for phone screen after 2-3 weeks. The phone interview was very basic - no technical questions. 2-3 behavioral questions were asked and then asked to explain what you did at previous company. So, I would advise be very thorough about your work experience and present it nicely. After 3-4 business days, got an invite for on-site interview which was scheduled after a week. On site interview at Chandler had 4 interviews - 2 behavioral and 2 technical. The behavioral interviews are very easy and you just have to give examples of few situations you faced at your previous job or during an academic project. The first technical interview will be about basics of OOP, simple linked list creation/reverse program, basic SQL queries, data structure differences etc. Only pseudo code is enough, they don't want you to write the exact code but you should be prepared for it because I heard from other people who were interviewed that they were asked to code on a sheet of paper or whiteboard. The second technical interview is completely on your resume - you should know about each and every keyword you have mentioned in your resume. Motive behind this interview is to judge what exact position will fit you on the basis of your projects and work experience.
    Still waiting for results although I selected Yes I got an offer.. it's already 1 and a half week after the onsite interview.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed through the Red Carpet event. Everyone was kind and informative. I did multiple 1 hour interviews with individuals or small panels. The questions were based on my resume. They did give a programming exam to test my skill level. It's a very unique way of interviewing, but it is a good way to meet many people from Intel. That way you can see if it's the right company for you.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the components in a computer and where are they located?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate. I'd recommend at least coming in with your important demands. You'll most likely compromise, but if you don't ask you'll never know.

    The phone interview lasts for 40 minutes and is the first opportunity for Intel to really get to know you. There are also competency questions that you should answer with examples from your previous work experience. It is a good idea to structure your answers using the STAR Method to ensure a clear and complete answer.
