    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Marvell Technology.

    Interview

    I first received an informational interview where the HR guy talked for 30 minutes about the company and all he had done for the company in the time he had been there in regards to the college recruitment program. After this I interviewed with the senior technical writer over phone where he mentioned that they don't accept OPT even though in the job listing I found they said they did. I was told they would get back to me within two days but didn't hear back for a week so I emailed the first HR guy to ask and received an email shortly after that they were passing on my application.

    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

    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.

    Need to disclose GPA even for experienced professional. If you are under 3.5/4.0 then you will not able to have the interview.
    People are much nicer than other competing companies. Not too tricky or trying to find the interviewee's weakness as other companies.
