    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Received an email notifying me of a video interview a few days after applying. Not a video interview in the traditional sense; questions would pop up, and I had to record a response. No one else was present on the other end. I was given three days to do it at any time. I logged in to the website and was allowed to practice responding before I started. It was easy to use. After that I was presented with 4 questions, all behavioral. I was given 1 minute to think and 3 minutes to record a response for each question (no response took more than 2 minutes). That was it. Got an email asking me to go through the next round of interviews a few days later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Talked to recruiters and engineers at university career fair and was scheduled an on-campus interview for the next day. The on-campus interviews were set up so that about 9-10 students were being interviewed in parallel. The interviewer asked me mostly about my resume and asked me a technical question related to a project I had done in the past, which I could not answer since it had been a long time since I had done the project.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    The interview process was suppose to be a 1:1, 30 minute interview but it turned into a phone interview due to the bad weather. TI contacted me with ample time to prepare accordingly. There were two interviewers on the phone that asked behavioral questions along with questions about the projects I listed on my Resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral Questions: "Tell us about yourself", "When was a time your project wasn't going well and did you fix the problem?"
      Technical Questions: Had to do with projects that I had on my resume; asked to describe a process that I used.

    Interview

    Three step interview. Part one is conducted virtually where you answer questions by recording answers. Second is a virtual interview with two engineers where they ask you behavioral questions with some technical components. In the last part you get flown to Texas where you interview with several engineers and they tie your behavioral and technical knowledge together.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It was a three step process. First, I had an interview on campus after talking to them at the career fair. This interview was mainly behavioral questions. Next, I had a virtual interview on HireVue that was also mainly behavioral questions and questions about my resume and projects I've worked on. It was a bit more technical than the first interview. The final step was when I was flown to Dallas for an on-site interview. On the first day I stayed at a really nice hotel and had dinner with other candidates and current Application Engineer Rotation Program people. The next day I had two, back-to-back 45 minute interviews at TI, where there were two people interviewing me at a time. These interviews were technical in nature. I also had to prepare a presentation about a project I worked on.

    Interview Questions

    • 1st interview: Mainly behavioral questions

      2nd interview: Behavioral questions and questions about my resume. A couple of technical questions that really depend on who's interviewing
      1) Describe the block diagram of a Bluetooth wireless headset.
      2) How would you improve the Bluetooth wireless headset?

      3rd interview: Technical questions specific to my resume and presentation. My presentation had buck converters in it, so they asked me:
      1) What's the purpose of the inductor and capacitor at the output?
      2) How do you make the input more efficient?
