    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intersil.

    Interview

    I Interviewed for an IC Design Engineer intern position.

    The first interview was in person at my university's campus. VERY technical, I was tested on analog IC design, op amps, current mirrors, you name it. Almost no behavioral questions, which I was surprised by. Even more surprising, I was only able to answer maybe half of the questions asked of me, but my desire to learn got me a second interview.

    My second interview was a phone interview with another Senior Engineer, and it was almost the same as the first. I didn't expect it to be very technical, but sure enough they had me draw circuits on a piece of paper and analyze them.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    I applied online and got the phone interview. The interview seemed going well with only some questions about the resume and background but no follow-up. I wrote emails to check the status but no reply at all. It looked like "silent refusal", disappointed. This was my first phone interview and I hoped it can go well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intersil (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got an email from the HR two weeks after the career fair. The first was a phone screen where a mix of technical and behavioral questions are asked.They immediately called me for an onsite interview. They reimbursed the costs after. The day started at 9:30 and ended close to 4:00 pm. A number of interviews that tested me on software, hardware, and other aspects. The interview was positive and I thought I got the job owing to what the HR manager said but after two weeks they rejected me when I asked for an update!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intersil (Palm Bay, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process took 2 weeks. Online search for internships within semiconductor field. Found one at Intersil, applied and heard from HR the next day. Process was shaky as the HR rep I was in contact with was switching jobs so I had to reach out to the President of the Palm Bay location. He was able to get me in contact with the next HR rep. On site interview was the following week. Scheduled to meet with several lead department engineers (Etch, Photo, and Diffusion). Interview went well, ask 1 technical question. Mostly small talk and questions about my resume. They took me out for lunch. The last interviewer ended the interview with, "so are you ready to work with us?"
