    Easy Interview

    Interview

    My resume was floated by a known contact. I had not applied for the position. Since my skills matched with what they were looking for I got a call. The interview was basic, just questions on my resume. But did not receive any response after that. I emailed the manager who took my interview, but she didn't respond and I finally gave up.

    Validation Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview process was simple. A phone inteview [45 minutes] followed by a 4 round onsite interview a week later. Interview went moderately well except for 1 round.
    Its their attitude and behavior after the interview that really frustrated me. I am a senior engineer working at a semiconductor company in the San Jose. I took half a day off for the interview process. After the interview, the recruiter [I believe his name was Jose] did not bother to reply back to any of my emails. A month and a half since the interview and the recruiter still did not have the decency to reply back to any of my emails regarding my candidacy. I understand if a candidate is not a good match. There is nothing wrong with rejection. But, when you call a candidate for a 5 hour long on site interview and then never get back to them...ever with any feedback, it just goes to show how the company treats its employees or future employees. It does not take more than 2 minutes to get on your computer and send an update to the candidate...whatever that update may be [rejection, closed req, job offered to another candidate]...whatever it is. But, not replying back at all and ignoring the candidate's emails...that is unprofessional for a recruiter and for a company that hires such a recruiter.

    Staff Verification Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xilinx (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online through the website. I was first called by a member of the team, who spent an hour on the phone with me asking about my knowledge in various technical fields, and upon confirmation of each asking more in depth questions. I was then called in for a marathon interview which consisted of meeting with 7 team members for 45 minutes each, as well as a 30 minute presentation on embedded systems performance testing. Being a new graduate, this intimidated me but nonetheless everyone was very kind and understood my low level of expertise and changed their questions accordingly. The interview went well and I received a number of compliments on my demeanor and coursework experience, but the position was intended for someone with experience and I lacked it. Was led to believe I did very well but was not contacted back afterwards, except for a vague response from the HR manager that stated interviews with other candidates were still underway.

    Software Engineer(PhD) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xilinx (Irvine, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I saw their internship job posting on LinkedIn/Glassdoor, then I submitted my application through their website. Then within 2-3 weeks a Xilinx engineer contacted me through email saying that they've got my resume from their HR. He offered me an interview on my past work experiences listed on my resume and some hardware/software design principles. I did the interview (a 60-minute phone interview - no phone screens or on-site interviews) with the engineer. It was a great discussion over the 3 unique skillsets I possess for the internship opportunity, which is about FPGA, debugging, and programming language compiler. I was offered the job, but then there was a big misunderstanding about my visa since I am probably just among a handful of students who do a full-time PhD study in the US on a J1 visa (basically they thought they would need to sponsor my work authorization, which they couldn't do, and I am actually sponsored by my university so they can change my work authorization for an internship at the company). But, finally the issue was resolved, thanks to our university immigration advisors who helped advocate for me. I then gladly accepted the offer.
