    Senior Deep Learning Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews, one onsite with seven 1-hour interviews in sequence, eminently technical.

    Each of the onsite interviewers had a particular area of focus -- it's pretty clear that they had prearranged which topics each person was going to cover because there was no overlap between them.

    The interviewers were friendly, smart and asked very relevant questions for the job. No weird quizzes, trivia questions or personality assessment. All of them had a number of questions that required whiteboard, whether writing some code, designing an algorithm or such. They weren't trying to catch you but rather they wanted to see how you approach a problem that you haven't seen before.

    As I said, they were all friendly and treated me like a coworker, which made it a pleasant experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Campus recruiting, submitted my resume and did a quiz related to VLSI that afternoon. Got a email for setting up an phone interview 3 weeks later. There were two physical design design teams I talked to. One is asking basic VLSI questions related to CMOS and timing, as well as some very simple c++. Second team is very focused on my resume and asked a lot of questions related to power gating, clock gating, CTS, etc. I got the second phone interview a week later and the guy asked some more basic VLSI questions and also asked some scripting questions, I chose Perl related questions, also very basic.

    Interview

    Applied online, got emails from recruiter after 2 months for 3 phone interviews and then followed by 1 day onsite interview. Interview went pretty good but not sure what they are looking for. I chased recruiter several time and always got response that they will get back within week.
    Never got Yes or No. Felt bad as I wasted 2 days for them.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews. It was for a very niche computer science role. After the second phone interviewer, I stopped receiving any update from the recruiter. I later found out that they decided to move forward with other candidates who had never even done the required skill for the internship whereas I had research experience and even taught that skill at a reputed university.

    Thanks for humiliating me in this disgusting manner and wasting my precious time. Such arbitrariness is frustrating and depressing for me - I hope the company makes progress, but I am definitely never applying to NVIDIA again.
