    Lots of positive talk and job description but that all changed once I got the position. Now I sit around and do very little daily to the point of it being an awful experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NXP Semiconductors (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewed with four people from the department. The first started with insults and lies right off the bat and continually checking his phone for the full half hour. I would have stood up and walked out after about five minutes except that I was working with an external recruiter and did not want to burn that bridge. The remaining three interviewers were nothing but pleasant. However, I would not have accepted an offer even if one had been extended.
