    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through my University's website (simply submitted my resume) and got an email from one of the managers in Finance. I had an on-campus interview a week later and it went well, felt more like a discussion than an interview. Received an invitation for a 2nd round interview in San Jose. Interview consisted of 5 people interviewing me back to back. Everyone was very open and and great to talk to, gave challenging yet reasonable and relevant questions. Best part about it was that I did not feel like anyone was trying to humiliate me or try to show off, all questions and discussions were relevant and not obscure.
