    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at National Instruments (Provo, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the company at a lunch in on campus. They were very kind and put us in a very comfortable setting. A week later I talked to recruits at the career fair and gave them my resume. Within a week, I was called and set up for an interview. They provided an info session going over all the questions they would ask in the interview. I interview on campus one on one with an alumni from my school. They really focused their interview on my thought process and de-bugging abilities.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Instruments (Nash, TN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview the day after the career fair at my college. The interview was held at some office five minutes away from the campus. Interview was moderately difficult. At first we talked about my experience, and projects. Then got into questions. I didn't have any idea about the first question (no academic background on that topic at that time). So, the interviewer switched to digital logic questions, which I had experience in. Questions scaled in difficulty.

    Didn't receive a rejection letter. Emailed them back after two weeks, then they confirmed that I had not been selected.

    Interview Questions

    • Implement the digital circuit design for an Aerosmith concert lights that go Red-Yellow-Blue-Green and Blue-Blue-Red-Yellow.   Answer Question
