    NPI Product Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Broadcom (San Jose, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Firstly, I gave an 1 hour presentation to the hiring team and relevant engineers. And then I had several rounds of 1 on 1 interviews back to back. Some questions include behavioral questions, and the rest of them are about my phd work. My phd work is relevant to the job position, so it was okay to answer most of the technical questions.
