    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm in July 2017.

    Interview

    Overall good experience . It took around 4-5 weeks for whole process. Telephonic interview following on-site interview. Interview with manager , two technical interview one hr interview. Technical interviewer were very nice people and expected to the point answer. Asked some basic questions then advance and scenario based questions. Asked to solve one problem on board. Asked for performance improvement questions. It was nice experience and talk to team members.
    I had to decline offer as they offered low salary and offer was non-negotiable. HR was kind of rude and you have to follow up. She would say Take the offer or walk away , she won't listen your arguments and pretend they don't need you they have others waiting.

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

    Interview

    Well, the whole recruiting was so weird. They came to our school for recruiting on Wednesday and later on Friday they said the position was filled. I understand that company would go to the events they committed to, but this is kind of a waste if time for both of us.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. First, someone from HR contacted me via email and arranged a call with hiring manager to go through basic skills that were mentioned in the job description. It was very friendly and short (10 min) phone call.

    Then they contacted me again for the couple of phone interviews. It was a technical phone interview. I already knew the name and the title of the interviewer. The interviewer called me on time, and after very short introduction, he directly jumped through my resume and asked me some questions about the projects that I had mentioned in my job experience section. It took 30 min, and then I asked some preliminary questions about the type of algorithms that they are using in this position. After these technical interviews, I have been called to San Diego for onsite interview where I had back to back 7 interviews for 5-6 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were from my resume. Explain the criterion of choosing particular machine learning algorithm for the problems which I was trying to solve . Questions on deep learning algorithms and natural language processing. Questions were all about the different deep learning algorithm, like Autoencoder, seq2seq model, LSTM, CNN. The interviewer was interesting to know how I implemented the algorithms, what type of data set (numerical or text-based) data that I used, and the evaluation metric I used for my project.   Answer Question
