ASIC Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was called for a phone interview first, talk about my previous experience, mainly about my resume, and ask some simple digital circuit question. One week after, I was scheduled for a screen interview, with 5 interviewers, last more than 3 hours.
    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

    Negotiation

    Average Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Marvell Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Co-workers appeared friendly and knowledgeable. The managers, not so much.

    Mainly technical questions, basic design, timing and verification questions.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation? They let you negotiate at this place? The first thing they tell you when they give you an offer is "hey, I've already negotiated the highest possible salary for you with our CEO. Unfortuantely, it's still ower than what you started your last job with. Do you think it's OK with you?"
