    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I met the phone screener in person for coffee rather than on the phone, he approved and said he'll bring me in for a full on-site interview. In about 2 weeks I went to San Diego for the position in either San Diego or Silicon Valley. Interviewed with 5 team members, mix of technical questions and get-to-know you and my relevant experience. Came away feeling positive, was notified in email the next day that an offer was being prepared for me. Made a small negotiation over the phone and accepted the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (San Diego, CA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter mail followed by phone screening. Interviewer were un-professional and rude. Will cut you off while you are talking and the overall tone is arrogant. I think they need to work on people's soft skills before allocating them to the interview panel. I will never apply to them again.
