Associate Applications Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Milpitas, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in April 2008.

Interview

Interviewed for 2 different departments with similar openings in the same day. Arrived early in the morning, visiting with multiple department engineers over the course of several hours. Quizzed on various fundamental and "tricky" questions. Finally, discussed with the department assistant manager about the company culture, department goals & requirements, and general personality questions.

After breaking for lunch, was led to second round of interviewing for other position, with similar format, again speaking with several department engineers. Occasionally had difficulty answering questions due to language barrier confusion with some, but generally was not felt overwhelmingly pressured or intimidated at a psychological level by the process.

Interview Questions

  • What is the frequency response of different types of capacitors and why would you use one or the other? (Ceramic, electrolytic)   1 Answer

Negotiation

Following the interview, acceptance was not indicated for at least 3 weeks even with follow-up emails. Delay due to semi-annual sales conference. Negotiations were non-existent due to the expectation that the counter-offer would likely not be accepted.
