    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Micron Technology in May 2016.

    Interview

    - Initially got call from Recruiter, asked my skill sets, expectations and gave an overview of the position.
    - Second round was phone interview with the hiring manager, Most of the conversation was center to my resume, skills and the job description. And he was happy with my performance, as he said at end of the conversation.
    - A week later, I got call from the same Recruiter, asking my earliest available date to join and other formalities. And he said he will be getting back to me with offer letter next week.
    - Next week he calls back and says I have offered the position to the other guy, and he is sorry for me. (which in deed pissed me off :( ).
    - Funny but all the interview process went in phone calls, I think they don't prefer to use email I guess.

    Interview

    Tech interview with all the members on the team on micron site. No much about the personal experience or stuff listed on the resume, but they tech questions they prepared. Followed up with some teamwork questions. Interview questions are listed as below. As a hardware company, they do ask at least two or three questions about hardware, so be prepared if you are more likely a software person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The process took three months with one on-campus interview, 3 phone interviews, and one on-site interview. The people were very nice but it felt as though I was being jerked around because I got positive feedback at all of the reviews then after the final on-site interview it took them a month and a half to decide. During their decision making time it was pretty much radio silence so it was a very long waiting processes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Sat with 6-7 supervisors for ~30 minutes each. All very friendly, but admittedly trying to stump you. Not interested in what you know but how you figure out what you don't. If you answer a question immediately and correctly, they won't be especially impressed, they'll just change it a little to confuse you and watch you try to work it out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Did a phone screen with 3 engineers at Micron in Boise. Around 9 days later I got a call inviting me up to Boise for 3 days (~2 days to explore Boise area) and 1 day for the interview. I accepted and traveled a week later to Boise.

    Some things to watch out for with interviews with Micron:

    1. They are very technical. I started the day with a 12 question quiz, which I knew was coming and had prepared for. It is not that hard, but since you are only given 30 minutes to do the test, you need to work quickly. If you had time to sit and think about all these questions, you would see they are not very hard if you know the basics of your EE classes.

    You need to study the following things: 1. Basic transistor device theory (e.g.. differences between NPN and PNP devices, holes, electrons, Quantum tunneling, hot electron injection and how this relates to the way flash memory works), 2. Basic capacitor charge/discharge. There will be a circuit given on the test that has a series capacitor network and a resistor network, so understand how to find the equivalent capacitor/resistance in both cases. The question will be how the cap charges and discharges when a switch is open and closed given a voltage source in this capacitor/resistor network. 3. Know some basic C coding questions. I believe there is one nested loop C question and possibly a C++ question. 4. Know some basic linux commands such as ls, mkdir, ps and how to recursively search directories. 5. Know how to create an adder from logic gates and there are some other basic logic gate/truth table questions. Again mostly basic stuff if you take some time to think about them. Finally, I have a feeling they use this test to weed out candidates right form the beginning. In other words, I doubt they bother getting feedback from the rest of the interviews you do following this test, if you do not score well enough on it to put yourself up with the rest of the top candidates. No proof of that, but with so many people they bring through, they do not have time to get verbal/written feedback from everyone.

    After the test, I interviewed with approximately 7 people (typically around 2 engineers tag-teaming you at a time) and got a brief look (from the outside) of their clean room. Pretty amazing with all the carriers whizzing around the celing with wafers in them going to their various destinations.

    Overall, I had a positive experience, but every single interview was mostly technical. It quickly went from discussing basic work items on your resume to technical situation type questions, so be ready to think quickly and solve problems for them. They will want to see that. However, everyone I met with is nice and no one put me on the spot when there was something I did not quite know.

    The other thing is that if you come to Boise, you can a bit of a chance to look the town over. For me, I could not see myself moving there from Southern, Ca. but others may like it. A bit too small and isolated for me. Very hot in the summer and snows a lot in the winter.

    Interview

    I had three people interview me at once. Very nice and seemed sincere with the questions that they asked me. Wanted to get to know me personally and tried to see if I was a good fit. Took them a while to get back to me though after the interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Overall process took 2+ months. Interview process initiated with a first 30 min phone call with the technical recruiter (HR). Later, the second round of phone interview was lined up with the process team. The questions were situation (How to deal with multiple projects, meeting deadlines, etc.)and role (How to approach processing of a novel material, etch selectivity, marangoni effect etc.) based, depending upon the position. Only few questions were asked based on the background from resume. After this, the team offered an invitation for on-site interview, where there were eight 1:1 interviews with team leads, managers and director. Questions asked were very technical and situation based (Semiconductor processing, electrochemistry), to analyze the skills and knowledge depending upon the role and position.
