ELP Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at National Instruments.

Interview

They asked behavioral questions and technical questions. I had to brush up on the technical part but for the most part they were easy to answer. It was a one oN one interview so it was more of a casual conversation than an interview.

Interview Questions

  • How would you send the readings from an oven to a digital output?   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter at the career fair and was called back for an interview the following day. This interview was fairly straight-forward and interviewer was very nice. Questions included: describe a time you went above and beyond, talk through an algorithm designed to find the missing number in an unordered list from 0-99. I was told a couple weeks later that I was selected for an on-site interview. I then flew out to an on-site interview at NI in Austin. The day consisted of two interviews from different departments, a behavioral interview, and a technical interview. I was in a group with 5 other candidates applying for the Engineering Leadership Program (ELP). Candidates are also asked to give a 10 minute technical powerpoint presentation on a recent project that is prepared ahead of time. About two weeks after the on-site interview I was told I was not selected for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview

    Met through a recruiting dinner at my university. the interview was half behavioral questions, half technical questions. The recruiter asked about my background, any side projects I had done outside of school, times when I encountered a difficult problem and how I solved it,etc. It seemed like a pretty straight-forward interview and I felt like I did pretty well, but I think they judge more harshly than I expected.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consists of two parts: behavior questions and technical questions. The questions are not very tricky, and you should prepare for those behavior questions by searching for general interview behavior questions. Technical questions are just vague, pay attention to the details. One thing needs to be pointed out is that always keep the big picture in your mind. for example, what would you do if something did not work out? What part could possibly go wrong. I believe this would help you prepare for the interviews better.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Is there a time you have a great idea and you managed to make it realized?
      Q: You have a computer, and some necessary components. Design a control system that could keep the room temperature at a certain degree.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Instruments in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went to National Instruments's booth at the career fair and was offered an interview the day after. Since the recruiters were only at my campus for a little while, they had a cycle of interviewees coming in and out every 30 minutes. The interview, conducted by two interviewers, consisted of both behavioral and technical questions and ran about 45 minutes or so. At first, there's a short resume screening then the interview went straight into the core with behavioral and technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • There's an array of 100 elements from 0-100, i.e. one number from 1 to 100 is missing. Give three ways to find that missing number.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus and then was invited on site ~6 months later for an on-site interview. The hosts did a great job with showing the interviewers around Austin and having a great time. The interview process was stressful as there were many interviews back-to-back and there was no time in between to take a breath and prepare for the next one.
