    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Mobile, AL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Got a phone call from the company's HR to set up phone interview. The phone interview was conducted by one of their team member. Questions about C, memory management, executable file format and some questions about resume. I passed and got the onsite. The interview lasted about 5 hours including talking with different team members. Questions about embedded system concepts, C compiler and preprocessor, interrupt handling, cache ...
    The interview was quite informal and the interviewers seemed not ready to ask questions. But they were very friendly.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Huntsville, AL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was unorganized and my interviewers didn't seem ready to give an interview. After an introduction, a random employee was asked to interview me with no preparation. He asked questions and got the terminology wrong, then wondered how I didn't know the answer. I was also asked what my dream company to work for is, as if it would be this one rather than a Silicon Valley company.

    Very fast and superficial. I could tell that there wasn't a lot of depth, and after being hired, I encountered the results in management. Job opening come and go so fast that there's a scramble to fill them with warm bodies before they get closed or reassigned.
