    Director Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was verbally offered the job, given one day to decide, I called back and verbally accepted. Then 2 days later the manager called and said they were giving the job to another candidate. I've never seen that done to a candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked how often I'd have my staff meetings, 1:1's, etc. Seemed like a pretty tactical question from a SVP, given the job was to come in and turn around an org.   1 Answer

    Systems Design Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview at first. The phone interview lasted about half an hour and recruiter mainly asked questions about the projects in resume. The recruiter seemed like satisfied with my performance and told me that he will recommend me to the next round. Then I received an onsite interview invitation about 10 days later. But hr informed me that this position required knowledge about analog design while me focus is digital design. So I did bad in the onsite interview and only had 2 rounds (there suppose to be 5 rounds). Onsite interview asked a lot about digital design, such as pll. So passing the phone interview is not always a good thing, the position is not a good fit for me and this experience is a waste of time.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Marvell Technology in February 2016.

    Interview

    Never got back. The recruiters seem to avoid certain schools. Too bad they can't sniff the best of talent from state schools. I had a friend who was never called back but a month later he got into Apple. Wake up Marvell recruiters. It's time for you guys to give every fresh graduate a fair opportunity.

    The int process was fairly exhaustive and pretty disappointing.

    Interview

    it was friendly as I am a pretty senior guy and it was obvious to interviewers that I knew my stuff. They asked what I have done and there were no tricky technical questions at all. Though I had heard differently. The interviewers did not come prepared and they were sharing the resume.
