    The interview was compartitvely easy. It had two rounds of interview. First one was a phone interview where they wanted to know my technical strength s that I put in my resume. There were some questions on academic projects also. Second was onsite at Phoenix headquarters.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ON Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Got phone call after applying online within a week. Very difficult and the guy is looking for a particular skill. I have done a project on ARM Cache configuration in one of my graduate courses and mentioned in my resume. He is looking for ARM MCU system design. I never listened that word, that is the first time and it took me 5 seconds to get that word. I told I don't have any course work in that, he asked the I2C protocols, I didn't prepared that as I am having a busy schedule with my semester. The HR will send a list of questions to fill, after responding to that email, she will schedule the interview without asking your possibility. I am having a mid exam and a programming assignment to submit. She haven't gave a single day time. He asked mostly on the MCU system design even though I said I don't know. He asked some basic C questions, interrupt, unsigned. He is looking for the exact keywords. He is a chinese guy, so it took me more time to understand the questions. He is expecting a lot from graduate students. In the end he understood and had seen my resume , understood, I am towards VLSI and told he don't have any openings. Never apply to the position that you doesn't fit and don'y have confidence. It is waste of time and you will loose your confidence.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ON Semiconductor (Warwick, RI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online with received an email to set up a "Phone Screen Availability Request" with Human Resources from main office in Arizona, who then forwarded my answers to one of the site App engineers. Received and email from engineer stating he wanted to call me and talk to me about the job. After talking a few minutes about the job, he started with some tech questioning, I wasn't expecting any tech questions until the face to face interview. I was caught completely off guard, even though it was easy question my mind was on eating my Subway sandwich, had no pencil or paper. Engineer's voice sunk after I gave him the wrong answer, and said he has other candidates he has to interview and would let me know. (We both knew we wouldn't be speaking to each other ever again :) ).

    Anyways I sent him a thank you for the interview email, no response...about a week later got an email stating there found someone else. Would of been nice to sit down and meet face to face oh well, my lost your gain.

    Hopefully you can learn from my experience, as for me.. I just accepted my an offer with Raytheon, Cheers.

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ON Semiconductor.

    Interview

    A very structured process. Had a telephone interview and then an in person interview. I had 5 rounds of in person interview. It is professional structure. I did get an offer. I decided to pass the offer because the salary I was offered was not at par. The culture in my opinion is not a dynamic IT culture, it is more of old fashioned manufacturing culture
