    Interview

    I submitted my resume during a career fair and got contacted after a month. The interview last for 45 minutes. The interviewer is very kind and she provided me with lots of valuable information. There are not many technical questions. She mainly asked about my resume and previous experiences. I am still waiting for their final decision.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through the career fair for summer internship and received a call a long while later for full-time. I had a phone screen for two teams first and then interviewed for 4 teams (3 in Santa Clara and 1 in Austin). 3 of the teams were for Design Verification (networking, SoC and core) and 1 RTL design team (L2 cache). I had a good experience with the process.
    The teams are quite good and the only drawback I felt from my interactions were regarding their design cycles. It is too slow and I felt that I could learn faster at their competitors even though they pay lesser.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions asked ranged from computer architecture basics (pipeline, cache coherency protocols, multi-threading) to memory management, verification concepts, C, assembly and verilog programming.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The campus recruiter distributed my resume to several hiring managers and within a week I got phone calls from several managers. They all basically told me about what their group does and learn about my technical background. Then if you show interest in their positions they will tell recruiter to arrange an onsite interview. During the onsite they didn't ask too much technical questions but just talked to you further by introducing their group and asking more details about your phd work and course work.
