    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in January 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was straightforward. We went through some of the relevant projects on my resume and chatted about the role responsibilities such as culture, how much time is spent in the lab versus at the desk, etc. I was expecting to hear back after two weeks max but there was no contact made whatsoever. It was only one month after my interview that my staffing manager was able to obtain their feedback and even then it was very unclear if they wanted to continue with the interview process or not. This was highly unprofessional since it kept me in the dark for weeks with no direct follow up.

    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.

    Product Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in December 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview took place at an on campus career fair. This consisted of 4 behavioral questions and one technical question. The behavioral questions were based on prior experience. The technical question was EE related basic analog problem, not difficult. Come prepared with your prior experiences in mind, including projects and previous work experience. They want to know how you have run into challenges, and what you did to overcome them. They also asked about team based projects, and scenarios where conflict may arise and how you would deal with that. Second interview was over the phone. I shared a technical presentation describing a previous project I had worked on, they want to see how you think and go about solving an issue. Throughout the presentation they questioned me about functionality of certain components in my project, so make sure you understand ideal textbook conditions for your work. Not very difficult questions, mostly the basics. But make sure you don't talk about anything you don't know alot about, really understand what you are presenting on.

    Interview Questions

    • During the presentation they asked how an ideal op amp worked, what the input and output impedance was at the terminals. Second question was programming related, given integers a and I, what is the difference between a = ++I and a = I++   1 Answer
