    Interview

    Interview process probably depends on hiring manager and some threaten you while interviewing itself. Shortlisting of resumes is not proper. Then during interview they ask strange questions and don't judge fitment correctly

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    Typical process, meeting hiring manager, a few engineers from the team asking about programming questions, explain my past projects. My past experience helps as I had to do project management, software development, and remote team collaborations. Not necessary that I do this at current company, but good that I'm not only just a coder.

    Interview Questions

    • Flexibility in working/helping on different projects. Seems like a team where everybody pitch in as needed.   Answer Question

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager who asked me to talk about my previous work experience and the relevant coursework. I was also asked some basic technical questions related to C++. After this i was called for an onsite interview which had two rounds.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was very impressed that the process moved so fast. No delays. The whole process took a fraction of the time it would take at other big companies. Had two rounds of phone interviews then was called onsite. At the onsite interview I had 7 rounds of interviews, one hour each. The first was with senior manager and focused on behavioral, goals questions and then basic questions from what I had written on my resume. The next 5 were technical. I was tested on C, Java because that was what I said I was most comfortable with. Questions ranged from knowledge of the language e.g questions about how the garbage collector in java works, to coding questions on trees, pointers, recursion, string manipulation, arrays etc. Some interviewers also asked computer architecture questions e.g. caches, superscalar processor design etc... The last meeting was with project manager. Asked few questions concerning whether I liked group members and projects being worked on.

    All in all the interviewers were very focused, professional, bright and helpful. It felt more like an interesting intellectual conversation than an interview.
