    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Austin, TX) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by over half a dozen folks over the course of a day. Almost all questions were technical and delivered by senior technical staff. For example - draw a system diagram (HW & SW stacks), label the components (CPU, southbridge, IRP, IRQL, DPC), answer questions regarding their function (MMIO, paging, interrupt handling, DMA, cache coherency, snooping, IRP & IRQL handling) starting general and progressing as deep as you are able. Some were fishing -- looking for specific answers to specific questions -- rather than asking open ended questions that might allow you open-up and shine.

    Hints of behavioral questions mixed into 1 or 2 casual questions. None of the point blank "tell me about a time" questions. Two interviews by managers. One was the reporting manager asking what I was good at, liked to do, and where I saw myself going. Was very open and understanding towards growth and change, that I could use the position as an opportunity to springboard into other positions when things got stale. The other manager was a director who got straight to the point: compensation, availability, response turnaround time.

    Impressions: It seemed that people were wound tightly and schedules were very aggressive. Business-like, to the point, only type-A personalities need apply.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intel Corporation (Folsom, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I received an email indicating I was to have an on-site interview. I was flown to the facility. The interview consisted of architectural, software, behavioral, and debug questions. The questions were relatively easy consisting of basics taught in your computer architecture and computer science classes. Some specific questions regarding Intel architecture were asked. The interviews were back-to-back with a one hour break for lunch.

    Definitely a long, intensive, and exhausting interview process. If you know your stuff and are a good communicator it should not be a big problem.

    There was a behavioral and technical interview which were both about 45 minutes long. The behavioral interview also included some logic questions that you had to work through. The technical interview is based on the type of internship that you are applying for and will vary.
