    Senior Business Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    All-day interview that included a lunch with 2 people.

    Questions were fairly technical by some interviewers, and more business/sales oriented by others. The role is more of a BD/Sales role, less technical than most other semis looking for a Marketing Manager.

    The role was super interesting, like a mini 'CEO' and I'd say it combines BD, Product Management, and Marketing into one, without a heavy technical need (you don't need to write product definitions completely, you get help from definers).

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of questions around working with customers, traveling to Asia/Europe and doing sales like work.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview

    Interview is challenging. Involves multiple phone and onsite interviews. Relevant technical background is a must. Also, having experience to the specific Maxim product line is a big plus. Overall, the interview process is a little slow. Other interviewing for this role have been asked to prepare a presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here?
      What do you know about this company/product line/industry?
      Share a situation where you dealt with a difficult situation.

      Technical question: Go over a typical switching regulator circuit topology

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was very long (3+ months) and required constant follow-up. I eventually got the offer and accepted the job, but the lengthy interview process was very frustrating. I was interviewing from another location and all my interviews were via calls/Skype calls and I didn't have a single on-site interview.

    Interview Questions

    • With the senior executives, it was more regarding your career goals and past experience. With the manager and other team members, there were more technical questions.   Answer Question
