    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview. The person I spoke to was very friendly and helped me get to few of the answers for the questions he asked. The questions were mostly general telecommunications questions and a couple operating systems questions.

    The second interview was on-site. The process took nearly the entire day beginning at 9 in the morning and ending around 4 in the afternoon. I met with the head of HR then moved to a different building to meet with one of the engineers. After this was the lunch interview with the head of the QA department. After that I met with another engineer who tested my problem solving abilities. The last interview was with a software engineer who tested my knowledge of various languages.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email and set up a phone interview a few days later. I spoke briefly with the hiring manager about my past experience then he began to ask technical questions. The questions related to object oriented programming despite that the job description did not ask for that skill and my resume did not say I had it. I don't really understand why they contacted me and I assume there must be some miscommunication between HR and the hiring manager. I was quite disappointed by the experience as I had previously thought highly of the idea of working for Qualcomm.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Two rounds of phone call followed by onsite. telephone screening was fairly simple.
    Onsite interview was a round of 6-7 interviews, 1 including even during the lunch.
    each interview was 30-45 mins, most of the interviewers seemed to be in a hurry.

    Interview Questions

    • since this was a test position, questions were mainly regarding the resume and behavioral.
      Only one interviewer asked questions related to data structures and algorithms.

    Application

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

    Interview

    these guys love Perl and Python and C. Make sure you prepare that. very text book interviews, the interviewers have probably worked at Qualcomm all their lives , so all they know or want you to know is the stuff they work on..which is scripts in perl or python or programming in C. Many are open source lovers so linux helps and please do yourself a favour and learn CDMA even if you have never used it before.

    Interview Questions

    • Writing PERL scripts on the spot on paper or board. formatting is something you are assumed to know..no using google :(   Answer Question
