    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monolithic Power Systems (San Jose, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Short (~30 min) presentation with CEO and chief mechanical engineer, 2-3 hours of behavioral and technical interviewing following with chief mechanical engineer. I was introduced to the company via UC berkeley's handshake site, and first conducted a phone interview, then was invited to present to the lead mechanical engineer and CEO about my work and what I could bring to the company. The process was relatively straightforward, especially considering the size of the company. I believe that this interview experience was an anomaly, considering MPS hires mostly electrical engineers.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to do material identification (and weigh the engineering benefits of those materials I was asked to identify), to give some basic design philosophies (e.g. how to lightweight structures without compromising strength), and to build a solidworks model of a simple part I was handed using calipers as my only tool.   Answer Question
