    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Boulder, CO) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was a phone screen before the onsite interview.
    In the phone screen, the interviewer asked a lot of questions about Embedded C, and gave me a link list question to write.
    The phone screen was almost 6 hours long.

    On the contrary, there was no link list questions asked, which was a bit shocking. There was also a lunch with manager, which is not evaluated, where the manager talks about the company and position.
    There is also an HR, where HR tells you about the feedback from the previous interviewers.
