Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2015.

Interview

Was met by a recruiter on campus. Had a 30 minute interview on the spot. He was super friendly and personable. He then followed up a few days later to set up an on site interview. The total process took 6 hours. There were not a lot of behavioral questions. 95% technical. 20% of the questions were about my previous work. The rest was testing my Circuit design skills. It was a pretty fun experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation in November 2014.

    Interview

    I met them at a career fair at my college, and about a month later, they emailed me offering an interview. It lasted about 45 minutes and had a lot to do with computer hardware: caches, logic gates, stacks, pipelining, you name it. They also had basic coding, circuits and algorithms questions, and they contacted me within the next week offering me the position.

    Negotiation

    They gave me a week to accept. They called me offering the details, and emailed me too. They're pretty responsive, although at times not so accomodating of things like commuting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Chandler, AZ) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at a campus career fair. He asked broad questions like "why do you want to be an engineer?" just to get to know my personality. He was very friendly and wanted me to succeed. A few days later, there was a phone interview. The questions weren't supposed to be difficult, but they focused more on embedded design. (My studies focused on analog circuits). I thought I did pretty poorly, and the interviewer said that I wasn't proceeding in the interview process, but about 3 weeks later they flew me down to Arizona for an on-site interview.

    The process was 5 one-on-one, hour long interviews. Each person asked about something different (one for behavioral, one for programming skills, one for digital logic, etc.). I had to use the whiteboard often to draw schematics or show my ideas and my thought process. I got along well with most of the interviewers but I think the actual hiring manager didn't like me. Recieved an email a few days later saying that I did not get the job.

    I pointed out my lack of digital experience several times, but I'm surprised I still made it that far through the interview process.
