    Interview

    Hiring process was similar to other companies. There was a phone screen which was followed up with an on site interview. The on site interview was with the team and folks from other groups that the potential candidate might have to intaract with. In general, the interview was very similar to industry peers.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Lattice Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Slow in pre screening, then heavy on onsite interview with too many problems for a single afternoon. Interviewers were not following a pattern. I was expecting a coordinated interview suite, between functional groups.

    Applications Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Lattice Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 4 people total. 1 on the phone which took about 50 minutes and discussed in detail my resume/experience/projects and education. The interview was fairly normal with not many unexpected or challenging questions. communication from the interviewer was very neat and straight forward. enjoyed talking with him thoroughly! Followed up fairly quickly too, within 2 days to set up a face to face interview with the senior engineers and the manager. Took a total of 3 hours for the other 3 interviews with a very detailed analysis of my work, etc. Was fairly standard with very well mannered interviewers. again, was a very comfortable experience. Overall, a terrific experience if you are confident about your skills and are not afraid to take the initiative and explain your work clearly and comprehensively.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me 3 ways to improve my current project, but i could only quickly think of 2 feasible additions to my project. i had to struggle for the 3rd, but i guess that was okay.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lattice Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Very poor interview process. The question is not related to the job I apply for and want to know about other company status. May be the interviewer was interested in my formal employer.

    Interview Questions

    • Different type of business question for formal employer.   1 Answer

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lattice Semiconductor in October 2011.

    Interview

    Hire by committee. You'll be interviewed by several levels of management 1:1. I was asked to interview with several different people that I would eventually be working with. Pretty standard.
