    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Was a Skype interview with the project Architect. Asked fairly technical questions. Second interview was also Skype interview. Asked more technical questions. Overall, the interview went well. There were some questions which I was not readily able to answer such as providing specific code examples. That said, my deep understanding of the software and language seemed to compensate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with technical questions. They schedule a phone interview. Then when they call you, they'll send you some questions to answer. Get ready to go back and study your EE fundamentals. The guy on the phone was really helpful though. Everyone is going to have an opamp or two questions on the interview so do study up on that.

    Interview Questions

    • Know your op amp. Some bode plot questions and RL, RC circuit. Maybe some transistor amplifier stuff.   Answer Question

    Marketing Technical Editor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They asked for a telephone interview and I gave it to them in the beginning of August. Eight weeks later they called me for an on-site interview.I was asked to edit an application note on the spot and the interviewer sat and watched me for less than 5 minutes (or less) while she read my writing samples and then stopped me. I was told three days later that the company was no longer seeking any candidates for the position and asked the recruiter to cease the search. The fact that they did not move forward seemed to be more about the company than me. The job description didn't match what they wanted. Only A.A. degree required, but they wanted engineering experience?

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about writing tools I had experience with, though they don't actually use them. Go figure. Also asked to describe my experience at a similar company. I was told that technical questions would be asked, but there were not many.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I used a referral from a friend who works at Maxim. The interview process is, I would say, quite standard as other interviews. First is a brief 30 min phone interview mainly to check your background and knowledge/skills. Then I was asked to go for on-site interview after 3 days. On site interview starts with an oral presentation on your past work to a group of 20 people. Then there are 1:1 interviews with 6 director level employees. Each took around 40 min. No tricky questions an purely technical with intention to verify your technical depth.

    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
