    Summer Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Technicolor (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    So I got an interview call after one of my friends working there, referred me. Although I am an international student here and I am aware of my thick accent, the guy on the phone had an even thicker accent than I have! Nevertheless, he was a cool guy and turned out to be my mentor during the internship. He asked many questions on MPEG standard (e.g. Intra and Inter frame predictions, CABAC and so on), No coding question was asked. The whole interview took one hour and all of that involved asking non-trivial questions and at the end he asked me Do you have any idea to research on when you'd join here. I had some ideas and that guy liked it, so I guess that's why I got the internship. So be prepared about that kind of question.

    Research Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Technicolor (Princeton, NJ) in May 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of a single phone interview. It was a conference call with four researchers, each one asking me to explain some of the previous research projects I had worked on in the past (which were listed on the CV I sent them). For each one, they asked very detailed questions about the approaches including to explain how certain algorithms worked (they obviously knew, they were testing my knowledge), as well as my reasons for choosing the paths I did. Surprisingly enough, there was no coding-type questions, they clearly stuck to the "science" aspect of computer science. But they were very courteous and knowledgeable. I ended up being made an offer a few days later and took it!
