Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

Interview

Talked to a former intern at campus career fair, questions were about projects listed on my resume and why I was interested in Qualcomm. Applied online with a code given to me at the fair. Received an email a day or two after to schedule an on-campus interview. Had the on-campus technical interview, which focused on object-oriented programming concepts, OS concepts, and C programming. A week later I received an offer.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR, and scheduled for 2 phone interviews. After the 2nd interview, I was told there would be a third phone interview which was not originally scheduled. One or two days before the third round of phone interview process, I received an email that the team decided to give me an offer. After 2-3 weeks, I received an offer letter from HR.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume. A few weeks later they got back to me telling me they would like to interview me. The interviews tested my knowledge of how C++ worked but, even though they were all coding questions, mostly tested my ability to think. I had a competing offer at the time with a strict time limit and they did a good job of getting back to me before my other offer expired.

    Interview

    Had one on-campus interview after the career fair. Didn't get an offer. Later I had two phone interviews and got an offer. The interview questions are fair. Not too hard comparing to some other software companies.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    Very straightforward and fast, 2 Interviews, 1 for QCT and 1 for R&D. If you just interview for QCT then there will be 1 interview. Both were about the same level of difficulty. Just be sure to ask a lot of questions about their experience and demonstrate a lot of interest/knowledge about what Qualcomm actually does.
