    IT Rotation Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    They are mostly concerned with behavioral questions. Mostly a good resume will get you through to them and then it's all personality / behavior after that. Biggest tip is (and they tell you this) just be honest with them. If you didn't know something or on a past project failed or couldn't contribute. Let them know that but also try to think about takeaways. Throughout the entire process they were extremely kind and helpful. They treat you well throughout the process and communicate well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Conducted an on-campus interview at University of Central Florida. A webcam interview was then conducted a few days later, followed by a trip to their Dallas headquarters for a final interview the following week. The first interview was mainly behavioral questions, the 2nd web-cam interview was mainly behavioral with a couple technical questions (draw an inverting amplifier with a gain of -2, draw a non-inverting op-amp amplifier with a gain of +2)

    Interview Questions

    • A circuit was drawn on the whiteboard consisting of two op-amps with reference voltages and and input voltage going into both op-amps. The outputs of the mosfet each had diodes, which were both attached to the gate of an n-channel mosfet, which had the source attached to ground, and the drain attached to a resistor which was connected to a reference voltage. I was then asked if I knew what the circuit did.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The process consisted of four stages. First was a phone interview with a recruiter from TI, during which we discussed the positions available and my interest/fit for each one. I was then scheduled for a HireVue virtual interview where I recorded my responses via webcam to a set of 5 or 6 questions. I then participated in an interview with an engineer for which I was asked to present a powerpoint of a technical project, and had to respond to a few technical questions. I was flown in to Dallas, TX for the last part of the interview process - for which I spent a day having lunch with current TI members and the other candidates for the position. This was followed by a series of three interviews the next morning, with a pair of engineering managers for each interview session. They asked both behavioral questions and technical questions during the interviews.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter in a career fair and he told me to apply to one of their rotational programs. A week later I received an email from a recruiter. They were setting me up in a one hour interview with two engineers. The first 30 minutes was a presentation, an engineering topic. The last part of the interview was technical. They asked me questions based on what I presented. I got an email the next business day from the recruiter and they wanted to set up a on-site interview in Texas. TI paid for my flight and all of the expenses and had my interview. I had two interviews on that day. Each interview consisted of 30 minutes and there were two engineers. They went over my resume and gave me several technical questions to do.
