    Interview was held over skype. Interview started on time and they were constantly in touch before and after. Asked a bunch of questions about everything on my resume starting from my electronics work to my lasers courses. Interviewers were friendly and didnt pressure me too much. But the questions were hard and pointed. It felt like a conversation with a really knowledgeable senior.

    Discussed the research topic in school and relevant experiences, the content we talk in whole interview is not too technical but the topics were very broad. The HR's questions were more strict and tough than manager's question.

    R&D Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hsinchu (Taiwan)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TSMC (Hsinchu (Taiwan)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1 hour phone chatting with the group members of the team. HR scheduled 2 teams for me one day, so the total time is around 2 hrs. They called to my cell phone, but it turned out that candidates are able to request for a skype one, which would be more face to face style and heling candidates understand each other. Questions are more about to understand your background, research work, and why you would like to work in tsmc. The questions are not that difficult. The atmosphere is more about chatting style.
