    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sensata Technologies (Attleboro, MA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    3 tech interviews + 1 hr.
    tech interview was mainly based on circuit basics. typical RC circuits, capacitors- do study capacitors basics well. work on your projects as they question you on our resume a lot. my advice would be to brush up your basics very well,
    Questions on device failure and how to detect it. also some questions on changiing capacitor and its scenarios. some innovative real life questions as well.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sensata Technologies (Attleboro, MA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I was invited to Sensata's "Fantastic Friday" interview event. I and about twenty other applicants went through four interviews (1 HR and 3 technical). The technical interviews asked about basic technical knowledge (I-V characteristics, how do transistors work, etc). After, we were given a tour of the whole facility. They responded with a decision within a week. Overall it was a very clear and organized process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sensata Technologies (Attleboro, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    There were 4 interviewers for each candidate. Each of them were asking different theme of questions. For instance, in my case, the first interviewer asked me about digital and analogue basic, 2nd asked about board level specifics, 3rd asked about high school physics and the last one was the HR asking about my ambitions and stuff like that.

    Interview Questions

    • Some major questions are really hard for me, I can't really remember. One question I think most of the employers will ask is: where do you picture yourself for the next five years.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Got interview through college recruiting. 45 mins interview with an Electrical Engineer, some non-technical questions about your resume, and most part are technical questions. Very basic about control system, RC circuit, op amp and circuit design.

    I am still waiting for second round of interview which will be on site.

    The questions are:

    Inverted amplifier and non-inverted amplifier.
    time constant for RC circuit
    how long does it take for capacitor to fully charge.
