    Started with an hour phone interview. Technical with reference to my resume and making sure I could explain all of my projects well. The interview ended with a technical question involving basic circuit elements.
    Second phone interview was entirely technical. I was emailed a pdf with 8 questions to solve in an hour over the phone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about an hour. It was both a phone interview and then for the technical we switched to google hangout. The first half was basic get to know you questions. The hiring manager was very kind and informative. He seemed very interested about finding out about my interest on engineering and technology. He asked about my previous work experience and specifically one project that I worked on during the summer. There were questions about what was my favorite class and why I wanted to become an engineer. The second half of the interview was about basic engineering 101 questions. Basic circuits and how different electrical components effect the circuit. The interviewer was interested in the logic or process of solving the problem and not as much in the answer.

    • How an inductor and capacitor effect the voltage output in a circuit?   1 Answer
