I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Tucson, AZ) in October 2017.

Interview

This was for an Applications Intern for the summer.
First interview was on campus after an information session for 30min. Very easy interview, asked me about stuff on my resume, typical behavioral questions. Very relaxed.

    Recruiting team is great. Very organized and listens to your preferences. Interview itself was two rounds- one more behavioral and the other technical. The interviews were very fair- not trying to trick you up, just gauging knowledge.

    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.
