    Easy if you know someone. Interview has to be with 3 managers minimum. HR, hiring manager, manager's manager, peer manager and multiple possible co-workers. Expect all day. Ask for a seat in the shade and for breaks. Don't let them low ball you on money - they have it. Do your homework and interview co-workers with a zest. Watch their faces to make sure you get the truth on job expectations. Good luck.

    Firmware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roseville, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at QLogic (Roseville, CA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The engineers who interviewed me we casual. The manager was super type A. HR called the day after the interview and said the manager wanted to make an offer. She asked what I made at my current employer, but I wouldn't tell her. She said that I'd have to prove my current salary before they could hire me. They have a policy of not giving more than 10% increase, including external hires, without VP approval. At that point I told her no thanks. She proceed to lecture me about how anywhere I get an offer at will require my previous salary. The next day I had an interview at the company next door, got the offer, no proof of previous salary, and made 29% more than my previous job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at QLogic in May 2012.

    Most questions were about previous positions with other companies regarding knowledge of the trade. A few questions discussing inner personal aptitude just to see if you can handle the stress and what would you do with a developer or developers that were over sensitive. Some questions I could not answer because no experience in fibre channel, but yet, the main portion of the interview was technical.

    • Only question that was asked that I could not fully answer was regarding fibre channel and since I had not worked with fibre channel in depth, I could not provide a viable answer.   Answer Question
