    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for the position in November 2016. Got an email from the staffing specialist that someone will call me for an interview. In an hour, I received another email from the same staffing specialist a decline message about the telephonic interview I had for the position, which I never had.

    The staffing needs to be trained properly and needs to be watchful of their email content. Sending copy-pasted emails without being aware of the content is unprofessional and unacceptable.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Varanasi (India)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    An online test was conducted consisting three sections:
    Quant
    Basic C
    Electronics/Software/Communications

    I chose to give exam on communications and was shortlisted for interviews.

    Three rounds of interviews were conducted. First one was based on CV and he asked some puzzles and some questions on algorithms. The second one was more technical and was asked questions on linked lists and bit operators. As my CV has more projects related to communications he asked me questions on basics of digital communication, wireless communication. The third round was HR and she asked me about my extra-curricular activities and my contribution in the projects I worked on.

    The interview was a pleasant experience and Qualcomm was my dream company. The interviewers were very friendly and offered some hints when I was stuck. You need to be prepared to explain each and every term in your CV and also have knowledge on basic C, OS, data structures.

    All The Best!
