    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited for an informal interview with the QCSS team at Qualcomm to determine if I might be a good fit for a possible opening. The first portion of the interview was with current program managers, followed by one-on-one time with the Director of Program Management. In both cases, they were very comfortable discussing the job and answering all my questions.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through the university career fair. Got a call for phone interview two weeks after I applied.
    Phone interview was 50 minutes long with basic questions about embedded systems and real-time concepts. A couple of days of brush up should see you through this.
    On-site interview had 6 rounds including a lunch interview. Lots of questions on realtime time concepts were asked. Make sure you understand the complete memory layout. Assembly and pseudo codes​ were asked. Questions related to projects (I did) closely aligned with their work were drilled on.

    Interview Questions

    • Couple of questions on my major (DSP/com) were asked, and I was sort of caught off guard. This I believe had a major impact on the result.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an invitation for a phone interview. Recruiter told me it would have C++ quiz that would last 30 minutes. Had the phone interview with him, after 5 minutes of going through my resume he began the C++ quiz. 90% of the quiz was on pointers. It took him 30 minutes to figure out how to screen share and it was very difficult to understand him because of his thick accent. He was also very rude when I asked him to repeat the question because I could not understand him.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    the interview is quite team dependent. unlike web companies, leetcode/lintcode is 100% required. QCOM want you to match the team requirements directly. The best way is to contact your friends in the team then you got focus of that team. Otherwise, it is very hard to get offer since interview questions are quite diversified.
