    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I got to interview with Qualcomm when they were at my campus. The process consisted of just a single 1:1 interview with an engineer. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and consisted of both behavioral and technical questions. The engineer was very friendly and fun to talk to.
    The technical questions consisted of very basic c++ concepts like oops and abstraction. This was probably one of the easy interviews I have had. Brush up on your basics with c++ and you should be fine.

    It took about 2-3 weeks before the HR called and made the offer. In general, I found the people at Qualcomm to be very understanding and nice during the whole process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I had an interview with 6 different person on the same day... (45 min each) So get ready for 5-6 hours of interview...

    The interview process started with a person from HR. Introduced me the company and the interview program and the details like procedure for hiring. Than the real interview started with 5 engineers one by one.

    They questioned my programming skills asked for simple programs in C/C++. Asked every detail on my CV.

    They even asked me to explain every project I did during my education life. Be prepared to present your work in the interview.

    They also asked questions from areas that you are not familiar and wanted to come up with an idea or solution to the problem. Be open minded and take your time to think...

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    the panel interview is not that difficult as everyone is nice and friendly but after talking to them, I felt I'm not a perfect "fit" for this position. As I didn't get the offer in the end, I assume they felt the same way.Questions includes: Why qualcomm? why this team? ~~why you want to work in this area? even why san diego~~~Basically, all the questions are based on my resume
