    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, phone screen with the hiring manager (and another manager on the team), on-site interview. During the on-site interview they walked me around the campus and I interviewed with both managers and peers. The whole process was very drawn out and in between the steps there was little follow up. After two months of not hearing anything after the interview process the recruiter finally followed up to say that they were interested in extending an offer. However, because their hiring process was so disorganized and I had all but completely forgotten about them by that time, I declined to move forward.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Marvell Technology (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I received a call for an onsite interview as I was in Santa Clara itself. I gave first onsite with 3 engineers. After 15-20 days I received call for another onsite with 4 engineers. The interviews were pretty basic stuff related to Verilog basics, FSM Design, FIFO related questions as well as on the resume. After 2nd onsite I waited for 2 months but I did not get any reply from HR or recruiter. Finally when I contacted manager, I was told that they had already selected some other candidate. They seriously should learn some professionalism and have the courtesy to give an update to someone who gave 2 onsite interviews. Totally disappointed with the process speed as well communication.

    Interview Questions

    • Verilog tasks and functions, FSM Design, FIFO Depth, some system verilog questions.   1 Answer
