    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was pre-recorded messages through Hirevue. Mostly behavioral questions.

    Second interview was a video chat also through Hirevue. Questions are typical such as what talk about projects you've worked on and some behavioral questions. There were also questions about RLC filters and op-amps.

    Third interview was onsite. There were additional op-amp/RLC filter questions. Additionally, candidates had to prepare a 4-6 slide presentation on a previous project. Depending on the interviewer, this may not be used at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    The process was comprised was supposed to be comprised of three steps, but I only made it through two. The first round was a on-campus interview. The questions asked were mainly behavioral with a few simple technical questions (define some characteristics of an op-amp). The second interview was a web interview using Hirevue where two current application engineers interviewed me. The entire interview was an hour with 30 minutes used for behavioral questions and the other 30 minutes used for technical questions. From what I was told, the third round is an on site interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    The interview process was suppose to be a 1:1, 30 minute interview but it turned into a phone interview due to the bad weather. TI contacted me with ample time to prepare accordingly. There were two interviewers on the phone that asked behavioral questions along with questions about the projects I listed on my Resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral Questions: "Tell us about yourself", "When was a time your project wasn't going well and did you fix the problem?"
      Technical Questions: Had to do with projects that I had on my resume; asked to describe a process that I used.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    Three step interview. Part one is conducted virtually where you answer questions by recording answers. Second is a virtual interview with two engineers where they ask you behavioral questions with some technical components. In the last part you get flown to Texas where you interview with several engineers and they tie your behavioral and technical knowledge together.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a three step process. First, I had an interview on campus after talking to them at the career fair. This interview was mainly behavioral questions. Next, I had a virtual interview on HireVue that was also mainly behavioral questions and questions about my resume and projects I've worked on. It was a bit more technical than the first interview. The final step was when I was flown to Dallas for an on-site interview. On the first day I stayed at a really nice hotel and had dinner with other candidates and current Application Engineer Rotation Program people. The next day I had two, back-to-back 45 minute interviews at TI, where there were two people interviewing me at a time. These interviews were technical in nature. I also had to prepare a presentation about a project I worked on.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st interview: Mainly behavioral questions

      2nd interview: Behavioral questions and questions about my resume. A couple of technical questions that really depend on who's interviewing
      1) Describe the block diagram of a Bluetooth wireless headset.
      2) How would you improve the Bluetooth wireless headset?

      3rd interview: Technical questions specific to my resume and presentation. My presentation had buck converters in it, so they asked me:
      1) What's the purpose of the inductor and capacitor at the output?
      2) How do you make the input more efficient?   1 Answer
