I worked at National Semiconductor full-time
Opportunities for advancement.
Constantly keeping up with technology.
Being bought by TI. Loss of a true legend company in the valley.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Semiconductor.
Phone interview followed by two rounds of on-site interviews. First round of on-site interview took almost two hours. I met 4-5 people in the company. The interview went pretty well. Later was called to meet another person in the company. This time it was only for 30 mins.
