    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview

    The interview process from application to start date was five months. After applying I was contacted by a hiring manager within two weeks. We scheduled a phone interview two weeks later.

    The phone interview lasted approximately 30 minutes and consisted of general questioning on experience and behavioral/process related scenarios. Toward the end of the phone screen, the hiring manager told me that they had a few more people to interview, but that I would hear from them soon.

    Within a few weeks, I was contacted again and asked to come into the office to meet face/face. The first in-person interview lasted approximately two hours. The questions were very mixed in terms of difficulty and the hiring manager was well-prepared having several questions to fill the time. The fast pace and high number of questions added difficulty to the interview, as I was forced to think of multiple examples. Shortly after, I was contacted and told that they had narrowed the pool down to 4 and I would hear from them soon.

    I was brought back in to meet the team a few weeks later. The interview was round-table style and for three hours I was questioned by 3-4 people. The questions in the prior interview were more difficult, but this interview was more stressful having 6-8 eyes on on for three hours straight. Before leaving, the hiring manager had strongly suggested that a future was in store for me at Maxim

    I was contacted again and asked to come back in to meet the superior to the hiring manager. Unfortunately, the superior had to leave town the night before and could not be there in person. I had an hour long conversation with the superior via phone from a Maxim conference room. Then I met with the hiring manager again to discuss salary expectations/benefits/etc. To my surprise, we entered preliminary negotiations on the spot. The hiring manager was very honest and upfront with me, which I appreciated.

    Within the week I was contacted and given a verbal offer. I verbally accepted the next afternoon.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Not too hard. Practical questions are asked instead of just theory. Talked to the program manager first and then another two engineers, each for about 45 minutes. People are nice there. Sent them an email after interview and got response a day later.
