    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Westford, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone screens. One completely based on resume and the second consisted of basic conceptual questions from data structures, OOP concepts, advanced computer architecture, digital logic and design verification. Cleared the phone screens and made it to onsite where I met 6 people for 45 min each. The questions were again from the same topics as the phone interview but was more in depth. Had to constantly follow-up to get an answer after the onsite interview only to be told after 4 weeks that they chose someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any very difficult or unexpected questions.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    2 hour long phone interviews followed by a 4.5 hour onsite.
    Phone interviewers were nice.

    Interview questions were challenging and it would have been a great experience had it not been for some rude interviewer.

    One of the interviewers was the rudest person i have come across. He started off by insulting thee way work at my current company (i work for a competitor). He also answered a phone call while i was answering a question, claiming that he answered it at that time since he was not able to receive the call on the day before. Yes, he thought that the best time to answer that call was while conducting an interview!!

    People are smart but some of them really need learn interview etiquette and basic courtesy.
