    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, if you are selected for as a contender, there is a phone interview with a staff member. The next and final round interview was with two group panels. The first interview was a panel of recent interns/ newly hired staff. The second interview was a group panel of the department managers. They each asked questions about prior experiences, whether those were school related or extracurricular activities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Qualcomm in May 2016.

    Interview

    Overall very enjoyable. Had 2 interviews, both by phone, one technical and one inquiring about my projects and experience. Both were with senior staff engineers, very respectful and enthusiastic. The technical guy asked me a good mix of both digital and analog (a little more digital), but since I was interested more in a digital position and my analog knowledge is rusty at best, we skipped over most of them.
