    Digital Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Technicolor (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through someone who worked with Technicolor to whom the company requested CV's from his classmates. My CV was selected and a Senior Engineer emailed me to setup a telephonic interview a week later for a co-op position in Indianapolis.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were largely based on my CV and particularly the VLSI projects I was involved with. While my focus has been on ASIC design, the position was more into design of high speed design at PCB level for design of Setup Boxes that goes on your TV with digital cable.

      It was a fairly easy interview that lasted about an 1.5 hours and the Engineer told me he will recommend me for an onsite interview. However, having not heard anything after couple of weeks, I emailed him and he told me he already recommended me and that there is nothing else he can do if they do not schedule an onsite interview.   Answer Question

    I applied to the job through school's Jobs website. Received a call from the company in about a week for an onsite interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Technicolor (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had three 20 minute interviews with a manager, and two senior software engineers. HR met me at the door and walked me out, but was otherwise uninvolved in the interview process. The entire situation was relatively laid back. They brought in some donuts.

    Interview Questions

    • A few typical "Tell me about yourself" questions. A couple questions went into what relevant coursework I had in various programming languages, and what I knew about the company. There weren't many technical questions, most of the conversation was about my background and schooling.   Answer Question

    Audit Specialist Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Technicolor (Indianapolis, IN) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for the job after getting an automated alert. The alert was for business analyst, but this one was an internal auditor's job. I am a CS grad who is planning to use my knowledge to the business side, so I applied for this not hoping to get a call. Plus, the job mentioned the candidate was required to have about 3 years of IT xp, which I had, so!

    After about a week or so I got a call from a senior recruiter. We set up a meeting but the Sr. recruiter missed the appointment. Needless to say I was pissed off on that day. But I kept calm when she called back later, since special cases happen to all of us. The telephonic interview was set up with her on another day. She called at the said time and we spoke for about 40 mins. She said she liked my profile and how the discussion went, so she was going to set up a date for me for the next level of interview which was with the Director - Corp Audit. Then interviewed with the director for about 50 mins, overall it was a very positive interview, and I had a good feeling at the end. Several clarifications were made since I wanted to make sure that my profile is not being misunderstood ( i clarified several times of my lack of experience in audit). After the interview, I got a call from the Sr. recruiter the next day for a call to be set up with another Director, who would be in Europe. This one went well as well. The next day, the Sr. recruiter called me back for a on-site interview with several people. It was my exam week, so I could not get going right away, and the process was delayed for about a week.

    After a week I was flown down to Indianapolis and was interviewed for about 7 hours by 7 different individuals from various departments (quality, sales, software engineering, security, HR) and of course again by the 2 directors and the VP of audit department. I was asked by almost everyone as to why I was ready for this position, and how I planned to learn. I was asked many times by the business sides of Technicolor, which I had read up pretty well beforehand. Most of the interviews were on my resume and past experience, with several pseudo situations thrown in. Only the interview by the PM of a software team was not too pleasant. No one asked me write a software program(since I am a comp sc grad I was expecting that), but I guess they did not need that for the role. Some asked about my interest in database and ERP, and I answered honestly saying that I liked databases and had educational training, but did not know much about ERP beyond the basics. I was asked several times by several people about my ability to travel, and I expressed my interest in travel.

    In the directors and the VP interview , I was asked about my salary expectations and I told it to them based on how much I would get were I to get back to my old company and the appreciation for my education. Two days after the on-site interview was done, I was informed by the Sr. recruiter that they would make an offer to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you are better than other candidates?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offered salary was 60K + 10% performance bonus (cd go upto 15% based on performance) + 5K sign-on bonus. Though the base package was less than what I had asked for (65K), I considered my lack of related experience and the possibility of traveling the world on company money! Plus I am an international student and was informed that Technicolor would do my H1 as well as GC over time, which I was not expecting to be told to me right away. Hence I accepted the offer without negotiations.

    P.S.: Technicolor has a good benefits package, so that got factored in too, as did the possible visa expenses to be incurred.
