    Had a phone call with manager and later interviewed for multiple positions....
    1:1 and group/panel interview was all about the resume and small design questions and comp arch questions.
    They were looking for answers but never looked at the approach.....that was really bad....and I was not comfortable with interviewers except for couple of people

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Marvell Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    They have an urgent need for people, so the whole process went very fast. I was contacted by the HR, then a short phone chat with the team manager, followed by a full-day on-site interview the week after. During the on-site interview, I met 7 or 8 people throughout the day and had lunch with the manager in their canteen. All interviews included brief discussion of my qualification and technical questions.
