    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Typical semiconductor interview process. First a phone chat where the hiring manager described interest. Second was a set of in person interviews - a few business management and technical questions. In hindsight the technical questions that were asked weren't relevant to the position.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I learned about this opportunity through the recruiter. The interviews consisted of two rounds of on-site interviews. All are 1:1 interviews with 6 different people: peers, managers, director and VP finance. The interview questions are quite typical of those big companies. The asked a lot of behavioral questions like tell me the situaion where you encounter difficulties with your business partner... They also asked detailed questions about the processes in my current jobs like how do I approach certain tasks.

    The overall experience was neutral. I never heard back about the decision until I contacted the recruiter two weeks after the 2nd round interview. He said they like my skills and attitudes but feel like they need to hire someone with semiconductor manufacturing experience.

    Product Definer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    3 phone screens. The first one was fairly friendly and shallow. The second one was very technical and a bit unexpected. The third one was technical but easy.
    The on site interview was about 7 hours long with 1 or 2 people at a time. It ranged from the technical to the behavioral and personality check.
    As expected, when I asked questions about the company, the replies consisted of very rosy picture ( a bit far from reality).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a better salary and sign up bonus. Should have also negotiated a better vacation schedule.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    recruiter called and I just gave it a taste of the job market. The phone screening is really tough then followed by the on site one. The inteviewer are nice but the questions are highly technical and I think I did so so since you can not be too technical on every field that they asked.
