Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

Interview

I first received an email to schedule a 10 minuet prescreen with the recruiter. During the prescreen I was explained the requirements of the job and given a chance to introduce myself.
After that, I was given an hour technical interview interview about a week later.

The interview involved mostly software related questions and behavioral/work style questions. Software questions were mostly about what algorithms I know and optimal ways to do things (sort, search, etc.).

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Xilinx in March 2012.

    Interview

    This was Internship position at Hyderabad, India. There was firstly a phone interview in which they asked me simple questions like reverse a string, pointer concepts, array concepts and to implement an operation using logic gates. I do not remember the exact questions. Sorry about that. Then I was called over on-site. There were three interviewers and an HR person, who ensured that the things were going fine.
    They were mostly looking for confidence on your concepts, whichever field you have quoted on your resume.However that was where I was lacking(confidence). I realized they were looking to hire hardware programmer/test. But were OK if the person didn't know the stuff, as they are going to train them anyway. They asked me:

    Nyquist Theorem, Finite State Machine and stuff on my resume.
    The third interviewer was slightly a strict person, unlike the other two who were pretty friendly. He asked me derivations of Fourier Transform, which I forgot. It took me some time to get to a step where from I couldn't get any further. He asked me another question which I didnt know, and that's when I've understood that I bombed my interview.
    I wouldn't know if there were further any stages of interview, cause I got a reject.
