    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Qualcomm, San Diego on 16th April, 2018.

    I received an email from a team member to take up a written c/python test. Two weeks later I got a call for live interview. I interviewed with 6 engineers from the same team. One person who was supposed to interview me took off that day and they made a lot of changes in the interview schedule about which I was not informed at all. The last round was with the hiring manager who seemed a lot busy that day. Looked like they had already decided not to hire. This was the worst interview I ever had.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was at a booth with a manager for the company. Overall, the experience went well. Honestly, this was very nerve-wracking given that the hiring manager was staring at me the entire time to finish my problem. It is difficult for me to work under pressure, so that is why I found it challenging for me.
