    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Portland, OR) in July 2008.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend for a particular group and I got an email from a recruiter. Although the position I was called for, didnt really match my profile.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were pretty much standard. What hit me was the being a PhD student, I was asked questions from Sophomore level courses. This was opposite to my previous interview with IBM, where they really RESPECTED my research and analytically walked me through the interview. The questions were 10101 sequence detector, CMOS inverter with just NMOS, importance of caches etc   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I had an on site interview at my college campus which involved a sheet of technical design questions. In about 2 weeks I was contacted to arrange 2 phone interviews. After two 30-45 minute phone interviews I was invited to fly out to Santa Clara, CA to interview on site. The on site interview consisted of 5 one on one technical interviews which were extremely similar to the phone interviews. Overall it was a very technically oriented interview process and I would make sure you know your stuff (design-wise) when going into any of the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Design basic state machines (mealy moore) and give the circuit implementation   Answer Question
    • Setup and hold time for circuits   1 Answer
    • Sequence identification circuit design   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for too little and they offered me over 110% of my asking amount. I'm just an undergrad, so don't be afraid to ask for more than you think then they can negotiate down.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (San Jose, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I had to undergo three rounds of phone interviews. First round consisted of three technical questions viz. Static Timing Analysis, writing a Verilog Code and writing a code for finding palindrome using recursion. @nd interview was based on my resume. Third interview was taken by a GPU Design Engineer so he didn't aske me any questions on timing analysis which I was expecting to be asked considering the fact that I was interviewing for ASIC designing position.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (San Jose, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    It is only a phone interview with one of the hiring manger I think. I don't know why I can hardly hear him even though I was at a very quite place. He asked about how to calculate setup and hold time by giving some parameters in the circuit. Also, frequency divider by 3 with 50 duty cycle.
