Yield Enhancement Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arizona State University, AZ
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Arizona State University, AZ) in March 2016.

Interview

Talked with the recruiter at their booth during a college career fair. I was told "I may get a call for an interview, I might not." The recruiter was not very friendly. The interview was broke into 2 parts. 30 minutes behavioral, 30 minutes technical. Behavioral was straightforward, asked what I know about the company, where I see myself in 5 years, responses to certain scenarios. I only had a few hours to prepare for the interview, so the technical portion was very difficult for me. As a B student, I did not remember all aspects of my education over the last 4 years. Luckily the questions were primarily on digital circuits. Didn't receive an offer, due to my poor answers.

Interview Questions

  • Process Engineering Question: What are two ways to limit or control an etch?   Answer Question
  • Charge Sharing Problem: what are the final Caps and Voltages after the switch is thrown, connecting the capacitors?   Answer Question
  • Draw a NAND or NOR CMOS gate. Which one is this? Why do we draw PMOS on top? What is the benefit of having PMOS connected to Vdd?   Answer Question
  • Delay problem: A 10 ns delay is connected to one input of a NAND gate, a 2.5 ns delay inverter is connected to the other. Input is high until 10 ns, then goes high again at 50 ns. What is the behavior of the output?   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Micron Technology.

    Interview

    There were three rounds of phone interview for total and no on-site interview for intern position. The first one was just some easy HR questions, and the later two asked about basic semiconductor questions, including CMOS IV, fabrication, like deposition, photolithography, etching. Also some personality questions were asked. The questions is not difficult, but there were some traps.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Boise, ID) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Met during campus career fair. Interviewed with recruiter the next day, and a few weeks later was asked to fly to Boise for on site interview. Interview was ALL day long and very similar to others experience on glassdoor. A few behavior Qs and brain teasers. Everyone seemed interested in salary expectations and what I wanted from Micron as a whole (career wise). Every 45 min was a new engineer walking in and asking very technical questions not necessarily related to my resume but specific to the job requirements. Everything from materials processing to electrical circuits. Was guided out and told me they would be in touch. Interview went well but the end was an unsettling experience as it was a sudden end to the interview. Took another Job as the decision process took WAY too long.

      2. 2nd Phone interview was taken by Area manager with rapid fire question round with basic material science, which was quiet interesting and tests your basics.
      3.Onsite interview consisted of different technical rounds: interestingly the interviewers showed different SEM images and asked to find the defect.
      4.Few engineers asked about semiconductor process knowledge as well as CMOS, transistor knowledge.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Micron Technology (Manassas, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    It began with a brief phone review after an online application with an employee reference. This was basically just a sanity check making sure you were competent and new basics like Ohm's Law. After a week or so I was brought in for the onsite which included 2 panels and 2 managers. The first panel was the technical interview and was rather challenging unless you had semiconductor experience in school. The behavioral panel followed and was fairly standard and asked very expected questions. Next you undergo another behavioral interview with the section head and finally a senior manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions regarding CMOS devices   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This was for an entry level position so I accepted a reasonable offer without negotiating

    Interview

    2 Telephonic conversations (1 HR and 1 technical) after which i was invited for an onsite. Had 4 sessions of interviews with 2-people panels and one final interview with a manager. Most people were courteous and questions were fairly relevant. They also included a lab tour which was quite informative. Overall, I had a good feeling about the interview. They got back to me real quick with a response, within 2 hours of leaving the building, HR called with me an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the panels asked me certain specific questions related to the companys products which was a little hard to have known but they didnt hold that against me.   Answer Question
