Computer/Electrical Engineer - 16 Months Internship Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AMD.

Interview Details I received an email from the hiring manager in a week from my application. He informed me that he would call me to set up an interview. After the phone call, I lost the opportunity of an one-in-one interview. Later, I was selected for an on-campus interview during their interview extension. I was interviewed for about an hour by two engineers. They went through my resume and asked me to write a short "test", which covers basic questions for Verilog, C and C++.

Interview Question – I did not expect a "test" for the technical questions. Since I did not prepare for software questions, I did not give the correct answer for the C programming questions. I was asked about data structure and time optimization.   Answer Question

Member of Technical Staff ASIC/Layout Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Markham, ON

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AMD in August 2013.

Interview Details It was an internal transfer. I was referred by a person in the group. I have had the opportunity to work with that team for over 4 years and they were familiar with me and it made the process more smooth. Hiring manager talked to me first for half hour to understand my interest, education, and skills. The manager was very positive and scheduled a technical interview with his experienced team members. It was a panel of 3. The questions were in the digital area, some Verilog and programming.

Interview Question – Explain CDC and how can it be addressed?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was satisfied by what I was offered.
