    Wireless and Broadband Quality Assurance Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Smith Micro (Aliso Viejo, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Very laid back, asked me technical questions related to the project at hand. Did ask me questions about resume/past experiences. Very much like other Technical Internship Interviews, except the engineer was very nice and straightforward.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation as I am only an intern. But didn't seem like they would have rejected a proposal. Very nice HR and staff.

    Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Smith Micro (Orlando, FL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Played tough at the beginning, but were fair and square, they needed serious help so I guess they were desperate for someone to come and fix their customer relationships. So finding anyone with a solid customer relationship and reputation, who would take this hot iron and run with it was welcome. The customer at the time said you have to be McGiver if you believe you can turn this around ;-)

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Smith Micro (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online. The HR person sent me an email asking several questions such as why do you want to want to work for Smith Micro, etc. Next came a phone interview with the manager then a live interview with the manager and 2 others.

    It was a straight forward interview with no trick questions.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The manager was unsure what the position actually was. From what I've seen from the manager and 2 team members, they didn't seem like they knew what the direction of the company was. I wanted to work at a place with the brightest people but I did not get the impression from the interviewers.

    The offer was also too low.
