    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at National Instruments (Troy, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    National instruments made an info session in the college that I study and I attended. After the presentation some recruiters stayed there and chat with us. They gave us more details about the job and took our resumes with no need to apply online.

    Two weeks after it I received and email inviting for a campus interview. The interview took about 40 minutes and we went through technical and behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They worked with me through the process of how to implement a system to record a person voice in a computer. They asked the question as stages like, "What would you use?" very general then they asked "But the computer would be able to read the microphone directly?" which was even a tip to know that should put a converter since the microphone output is analog and the computer is only able to read digital signals.

      It was also asked a pretty basic question about software that was "given an array not ordered which numbers in the range 1-100, suppose it is missing a number how would you proceed to know which number is missing?"

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview was fairly simple. The technical questions were on RC circuits and signal conditioning. There was a question about my project and how I solved a problem that I faced in my project. There were a few questions about my leadership qualities and how I have exhibited them. The interview experience was pleasant and the interviewer made me feel very comfortable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    On campus career fair. Interview was on the next day.
    And a couple of behavioural questions as well. Eg: describing about a project, what was the role, major problem and how was it tackled, etc..
    Not very tough. Could have been better if properly prepared or gone through the concepts.
    It was a 45-minute interview, first 10 minutes behavioural, 30 minutes technical - 3 questions and they see the way you proceed in solving them (1. Some circuit was given and asked to draw the frequency response and find the cut off frequency 2. Design a circuit with a gain of 10) Do not remember the third question. Last 5 minutes - any questions to be asked.

    Didn't hear back after the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions on frequency response and designing circuit with a certain gain.
      Basics learnt in electronic devices and circuits, pulse and digital circuit courses.
