    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Texas Instruments in September 2015.

    Interview

    The first round was an in person interview. They just go through your resume with you, ask about different experiences, and things like that. They took a pretty long time to get back to me after the first round (like a whole month).
    The second round is a phone interview. I had to prepare a presentation, and I just talked about a previous school project I worked on--the design process, the final result, the different problems I ran into while coding it. The phone interview was almost an hour long.

    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.

    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
