    PDK Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Silvaco (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was quite simple. General discussions about the projects carried out during Master's and future plans. One hour long phone interview and a Skype interview which was later cancelled. They started off by explaining the kind of work they do at Silvaco and proceed to ask me about my research experience in device fabrication as well as my course work related to Cadence design of layouts. They were particularly interested in knowing about my previous internship experience at UC Berkeley.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the working of a MOSFET transistor in detail   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was tough since they weren't ready to offer a competitive pay. They were able to increase the pay by a few dollars per hour but that was it. Basically took up the offer because I was interested in the position.
