    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through the school job site, and they called to schedule an interview on campus. It was a one on one interview with just the basic questions, how do you handle conflict? was there a time where you were reprimanded for you actions that you thought were correct? Half of the time we were chatting about personal life, and he didn't ask anything financially related at all. It lasted about 20 minutes, and he was very friendly.

    He explained that this was not a high hour job, and that he had plenty of time away from work. He also said
    that it is a pretty relaxed environment and the coworkers are very friendly and like to hang out outside of work.

    The position was actually a rotation, which was not stated in the job description. He said that you will have a balance between working with people and working in excel.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Semiconductor (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The process is an extremely typical one. It starts off with a phone screen and then proceeds with an on-site interview. This position had seven other candidates interview on-site. Started off with a brief introduction from the hiring manager. Then, there was a rotation of three different one-on-one interviews. Depending on the interviewer, the technical questions ranged from easy to slightly difficult - all basic analog questions. Some examples include: op-amp gain, simple circuit analysis, capacitor circuits, constructing filters, etc. Interviewers asked about previous work experiences and projects. Not the most difficult interview; however, the group only hired one (the candidate who had a MSEE).

    Interview Questions

    • Derive the gain equation for a basic non-inverting op-amp.   1 Answer

    Strategy equals execution. All the great ideas and visions in the world are worthless if they can’t be implemented rapidly and efficiently. Good leaders delegate and empower others liberally, But they pay attention to details, every day.
