Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

Interview

Standard technical interview. Questions related to algorithms and design and data structures. Focus on optimizing solutions. They look more at how you approach the problem than the solution itself. Interview consisted of 4-5 round with different developers. They paid for the accommodation and food and flight. I did not get an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    One of the Nvidia employee referred me. Got email from recruiter afterwards and arranged interviews. I was told which team that was interested in me, and who was gonna interview me. There were two rounds of phone interviews, one from the team member and the other from the hiring manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Very reasonable questions, most of which are basic computer science knowledges and algorithms. One of the interview talked a lot with me after the interview process, providing a lot of tips in terms of what should a student looking for an intern expecting, and how to develop your career, etc. Really helpful cos most interviewers won't talk to interviewees about these topics, and I think answers to these questions are important.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation phase.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    3 Phone interviews, first 2 were technical interviews with various members of the team, third interview ended up being more HR oriented with minimal technical questions. The offer came in after the third interview.
    Doing the interviews on the phone was a little akward, especially when I had to write a C++ implementation of breadth first search and read my solution line by line. There was also an instance where my interviewer missed my second interview and we had to reschedule. All in all though, these things happen, and I felt the interviews were effective at testing my knowledge and they were pretty prompt about getting back to me.

    Interview Questions

    • I wouldn't say there was a most difficult question. There were numerous data structure/algorithm questions involving linked lists, hash tables, and operations on binary representations of algorithms. There were also questions about operating systems. I remember virtual memory and paging came up more than once.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, offer was very reasonable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (San Jose, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I thought the interview process went well. There was an initial screening interview followed with a google hangout technical interview. I found the technical screening questions to be quite difficult compared to other companies.
