    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Davis, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I went to the career fair at my school (UCD) and got asked to come for an interview for the next day. At the 1 on 1 interview, I had to meet a Texas Instruments recruiter and I was asked mainly behavioral questions. The questions were about my resume, my skills, past experiences, strengths and weaknesses. There was a technical question and I bombed it since it was hardware oriented.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was an On-Campus one that happened during the Career Fair. Interview lasted for 20-30 mins. Basic questions about projects and few technical questions.

    Second round consisted of two parts. First part was a design oriented presentation about the Projects that I have so far done. Questions were asked based on it. The second part was a set of technical questions that ranged from RC, RL networks to basic CMOS amplifiers. Together, the two parts went for an hour. This round took place over phone and also by sharing my laptop screen(for the presentation).

    Third round was a phone interaction with a Project Manager under whom I would be working. He wanted to just chat and see, if my interests align with the project that his team is doing. The talk went on for 15 minutes.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    Very Typical Behavioral Interview. Questions like Tell me about a time. Allowed time to talk about yourself. Recruiters were very respectful, comforting, and very nice. It didn't feel like your typical, intimidating interview. Didn't get the job, but still felt valued and welcomed.

    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.
