    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. Very basic questions with very little in-depth questions. Most interviewers asked questions from their own background. There were few questions from outside of the field (such as, from Physical Design) as well, but they were very basic.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview with the manager of a particular team. It involved both introductions and technical questions. I was told there were multiple candidates for consideration and I would be contacted for further interview steps. I had to follow-up after a week time and I was told that they will get back to me asap. Later I was told they have decided not to pursue any further interviews with me as they have found more suitable candidates. The manager I was in contact suggested to forward my application to other teams but I have not heard back from anyone else from Xilinx since then.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Xilinx (San Jose, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I had to use my networking contacts to get attention. I sent an email to the SVP to which he did not respond but a recruiter contacted me via email for an onsite interview. There was no phone screen. Everyone was straightforward and friendly during the interview.

    Some interviewers asked technical questions and also asked me to draw block diagrams on the white board. Other interviewers asked hypothetical questions about handling different situations.

    I was told by the hiring manager that the position is not going to be filled after all. I believe they promoted internally.
