    Physical Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cavium (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Had 2 telephone interviews and 4 interviews on-sight. It was purely technical. Each interview was around 1 hour. Covered all the topics in physical design from floorplan to STA along with basic digital logic questions which I din't expect at all.
