    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview

    The first stage was a phone interview with a 10 minute powerpoint on an engineering related topic (college projects, internships, etc.). The next step was an all day onsite interview with a ton of circuit analysis (mainly op amp circuits not taught in the classroom, but can be solved without too much trouble if you know the basics of op amps). A few basic c programming questions to check if you have ever done any programming... A few questions on how you would approach a problem (broken pcb, inoperative circuit, etc.). The onsite interview included a panel interview with a few members of the team as well. There were a few behavioral questions sprinkled in as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Which circuit presents a lower input impedance to a voltage/circuit that needs amplification, an inverting or non inverting amplifier configuration?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Atlanta, GA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter on campus during a career fair. Was scheduled for an on campus interview 2 days later, told to apply to the position before hand. The interview was conducted by two people, one of which was the person I'd spoken to at the career fair. Almost entirely behavioral questions and questions about your resume. Maybe one or two low level tech questions relevant to my resume, but clearly nothing they had planned to ask in advanced, spur of the moment. Was told at the end that HR would contact me in a day or so.

    Received email inviting me to a virtual conference interview, told to prepare a 10-15 minute presentation on a technical topic, use desktop sharing software to present it. The interview was again behavioral questions, really focused on seeing how well you work in teams and what your approach is to resolving conflicts or dealing with situations. No technical questions, was told I would hear back within 4 weeks.
