    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Power Integrations in September 2010.

    Interview

    2-level interview: one with manager (less technical), one with colleagues with in-depth discussion about power supply topologies and design. Good engineers will find it relatively easy. When the questions became more challenging, it's important to get back to basics. In case you claim you've done something in the past, be prepared to provide evidence

    • try to convince me (as customer's purchasing dept representative) to buy your IC based on cost / benefit of your solution   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, offer was good enough and well presented

    Product Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Power Integrations (San Jose, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Initial recruiter interview was ignored, but when I called back, I got an interview immediately. I had a phone screen with the recruiter, then in-person interviews with the whole team - other marketing managers and engineers, HR. I believe I talked to 5 people total for 45 minutes each.

    The people definitely looked busy and overworked. It had a small-office feel. Work culture is common for the semi-conductor industry - get in at 8, leave at 6.

    Typical questions include common industry problems, such as how to beat low-cost competitors out in Asia.
    Other questions include RC circuits, LC circuits.
    Another question was based on taking an AC input and converting it to a stable DC voltage. (Flyback)

    Interview Questions

    • Take an AC input of 120V; draw a circuit that converts it to 20V output.   1 Answer
    • Draw an RC circuit. How much time does it take to charge to 90% of the input voltage when Vin is applied?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were cordial. Just remember - paid education is a myth, no matter what the HR person tells you.
