    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    Pretty streamlined and standard internship interview process. Asked real time coding questions on coder pad and asked project centric questions. It's good to have ideas on what kind of projects you like. Coding questions were fairly easy and the interviewer was helpful.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by multiple recruiters over a period of several months. I had one interview cancelled. One rescheduled after the interviewer called in 30 minutes late. Another time the interviewer was 10 minutes late. Eventually I went through 2 rounds of phone interview before they decided not to proceed further. The recruiter was friendly and helpful, but I did not feel the hiring managers respected my time enough to show up on time and make decisions in a timely manner.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    Spoke to a recruiter at the university job fair about my skill-set, and he forwarded my resume to one of their teams. I had two phone interviews, both with members of the potential team. The first was entirely based on my resume, and the second was mostly with one real-life problem thrown in that we worked through the solution to during the interview (trying to see my problem solving process). I received notice of the offer several hours after the interview concluded, same day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to the hiring manager by a mutual contact. I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and was shortlisted for on-site interviews. The interviewers were GREAT. They took the time to tell me about their culture, their team and were very open about their weaknesses. They made me feel very comfortable and asked very good questions. They were all smart and pretty good at what they did. I was scheduled to go for second rounds of on-site interviews but got a call from a senior recruiter who said they are down to 2 candidates, they will choose one of them and don't want to waste my time. How nice is that? I told her it meant a lot to me that they didn't waste my time and were open and honest with me.
