    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    HR wrote saying the manager would call me in a few days for an interview. The HR did not say if this was an actual interview or to schedule an interview. She did not respond to any enquiries or clarifications (others have written about the rude incompetent HR).
    Turns out this was to schedule an interview but I wasted my time and energy wondering if this was an interview. Shame on HR.

    The manager scheduled a phone interview and asked me to answer some (not very well thought out questions about my background).

    During the phone interview (1.5 hours) the manager rambled on circumspect about why I had taken time off and programming experience. This is not a very high profile position and the manager was trying to hire someone who had both current hot skills as well as olde 19th century ones that she herself used. She asked if I would interview locally in Silicon Valley before they fly me over to which I promptly agreed.

    I never heard back after that. Not a courtesy from either rude hr or the manager herself. I didn't bother to ask either. This interview was the typical scenario where employees don't know much especially with regards to the latest trends but hypocritically set a very high bar for new hires. Didn't lose much sleep over this since I didn't expect to learn anything from anyone there least of all the old mothball of a manager.

    Standard Cell Layout Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Bengaluru (India)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on Qualcomm's career page. After carefully reading the job description I applied for the job. Around a month later I got a call from HR. They organized the interview on Qualcomm's one of the site.

    They had scheduled 6 interviews by 6 interviewers.The first round was very shot almost 10 min. The second round was the lengthiest one, it was just checking my expertise in VLSI design domain. He asked about ASIC design flow, some timing related question. Then he informed me about the job role, that gave me a hint that this position is not aligned with my skill set but I didn't let him know that. He also told me that they were looking for BTech graduates and I was in 2nd year MTech, so it made me overqualified for the position.

     The second interviewer asked me about my knowledge about CMOS design, standard cell layout, types of standard cells. I was very good in CMOS design and explained him very well about types of std cells. Next rounds were totally on layout design. As I was not from the same domain, it went horribly.

    At last, they told me the HR will inform me about the results within a week or so, but did not get any response from HR even after emailing multiple times.
