    Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlsbad, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MaxLinear (Carlsbad, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The phone interviews were fine and the interviewer asked some technical questions. For the onsite interview, they requested to sign an NDA form that I did not follow up further with them. A professional company should perform interviews in an excellent manner and it should not expose candidates to confidential information. The candidates would be invited for the interviews as experts in their fields and if exposed to confidential information by accident or on purpose by the interviewees, their professional career can be damaged significantly in a close future. I do not recommend signing NDA with any company in the interview step unless you are sure that you would get a contract with a very high probability.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MaxLinear (Carlsbad, CA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    very disorganized interview, not from a schedule perspective, but regarding the discussions. Technical questions were not focused, many interviewers covered the same topic, some key topics were not covered.
    Also, some interviewers insisted they were correct about items when they were wrong. Overall, I sensed a lot of hubris from all of the interviewers.
