    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I feel like my opinion of this is marred by the fact that the interviewer doing my phone screen had a thick accent and I couldn't understand him. Even though the questions asked weren't hard, the interview was difficult and I kept having to ask him to repeat himself, which probably did not make me look good.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was done via Microsoft Lync (like skype) and a collaborative coding tool where you can view code in real time. Interview consisted of both several technical questions and several questions about background and experience. Technical questions were C oriented, and the time given to answer them was rather limited. Interviewer was impatient and the interview itself was full of tension.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Hillsboro, OR) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Ask you about simple program and statistics. At the beginning, the interviewer asked me about the resume and what did I do in my research. The interviewer is really interested in the research I did so talked about that for a couple minutes. Therefore, the interviewer did not ask many questions due to the time constraint.
