    Business Planning Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in September 2018.

    Interview

    About a week after applying online, I received an email asking if I would like to do a phone screen. After the phone screen, I was told they would like to do an on-site interview and that took about 3 weeks to schedule. The on-site had two panel interviews. After the on-site the recruiter told me that she was going to get feedback from the interviewers and that I should hear back in about a week on whether or not they want to give me an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There was actually 4 or 5 interview processes I had to go through, when I first went in I didn't realize I was getting hired through a contractor agency. I believe the first was when I called to begin with and we had a phone interview and then set up an in person interview. Then I met with someone who made me an offer, had another phone interview at some point, (this was just through the contractor) then had another two sessions with the actual TI company, some testing and also a group thing to see how everyone did having to suit up to be in a clean room environment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied for on-campus interview. Got a phone call later on, then had an on-campus interview. Then had a second round interview that was over the web and focused on us presenting a project we had worked on before. The interviewers were generally nice, and the HR folks are awesome. They are accommodating (within their limit) and really make the process as smooth as possible.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through a university careers website and got an on-campus interview. This lasted about a half hour, and it was just a behavioral interview. Later that evening, I heard from HR that the interview had gone well and that they'd like to set up a phone interview for as soon as possible. The phone interview would also have a web conference component where I was to prepare a 10-15 minute presentation on a project that I'd worked on.

    My phone interview/presentation was with an embedded systems engineer, and he had an extremely thick accent. I had a hard time understanding most of what he said over the phone, and I had to ask him to repeat himself many times. From what I could tell, he thought my presentation was very good. However, when he asked me if Texas Instruments was my top choice for employment, I said no, and that I was hoping to get a more software-oriented position if possible. Because of that, I didn't hear back from TI after this interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Follow-up questions asked during my presentation: Explain why you chose the language you did, and why you chose an interrupt-driven design.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in October 2008.

    Interview

    the first interview was with the HR general manager. it went very well, no technical question, just about my career goals and what kind of posiition i would like to get once hired, and most important, rewrite my resume and tell explicitly the courses i took so far.
    the second was with the HR again, and more detailed. it was regarding my educational background, my strength and weaknesses, and a brief discussion on my resume.
    the third was with my boss (software application manager) and it took approximately 1h. he explained to me what they are doing, asked me what i'm looking forward to doing, the device i would be working on and also he asked what are my passions.
    the last interview was very in depth, and skills oriented. i was litterally quizzed in the area i will be working on. it was about 1h30mn interview, and it went well.
