    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, get the contact from the hiring manage after two days. The phone interview is very technical, and detailed. The technical questions go through every detail of BJT device physics, and process. The interviewer is nice and smart but somehow push, who even try to give me an equation and plot through the phone. It is a stressful interview experience.

    Design Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    If you want to be a design engineer at Linear, besides knowing circuit fundamentals (R's, C's, L's) you really have to know your transistors. Current mirrors, current sources, diff pairs, cascoding, matching, op-amps, etc. You should also know control systems, noise gain, miller effect, etc. Last but not least, a knowledge of device structure, physics, and non-idealities is necessary. Some companies pride themselves in being able to train monkeys to be design engineers, but Linear only accepts the very best.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Linear Technology (San Jose, CA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Several phone interviews with fairly practical questions, they gave me time to investigate and call back. This was followed by a short interview at satellite design center close to where I was attending grad school, then an 8 hour interview at headquarters. This was the most challenging interview of any company I applied for.
