    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marvell Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Online applications and call within 2-4 weeks. Strange thing manager called directly without scheduling an interview and started asking all sorts of questions. He was so impressed that towards the end he said the next round might be bypassed and HR might send the on-site invitation. Till date, I haven't heard back from them neither the HR nor the manager who called.

    They asked some small questions, one guy still focus on the resume, some others ask some verilog question, some design question, quite straight-forward.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions are clear and normal. eg. write FSM in verilog, some DFT related questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marvell Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    Interview process was straightforward. Phone interview followed by onsite with 6 1:1: interviews.

    All basic design question from VLSI, datapath design and bus architectures.

    The interview went well, but they have a simple policy of not responding to any emails under any pretext. I am under the assumption that I was not selected due to their strong inkling to be completely ignorant to my emails.

    At this point I have no regard for a company that treats candidates so poorly; it just shows the amount of respect (or lack of) that they have for people in general.
