    Interview Details

    The Process was held as a part of the college placement process. Students were shortlisted on the basis of their CGPA and there was a technical written test as the first round in the selection process.
    Six students were shortlisted for the Interview out of the 210 shortlisted. They might finally select 1-2.
    The interview was a high class filtering for those who actually deserve the job. It is usually for 1-2 hrs per person. All the best! :)

    Principal Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cadence Design Systems.

    Interview Details

    Excellent experience interviewing. Expectations were laid out clearly, and negotiations went quickly. Meeting staff and soon-to-be-coworkers was a pleasant and very informative process. Actually, my experience was exceptionally smooth because I worked for this man in a previous job 10 years ago, and he was ready to bring me in. That was behind a lot of it, plus the work I'd done to prepare and having had three interviews already that year with the company. Lots of groundwork laid, but in the end it wasn't all my doing.

    Interview Questions
    • When can you start? I know, that's typically not what you'd expect, but for me, that was it. Like I said, they were ready to bring me in. They already knew me. Learning new material now on the job is tougher than any 'question' in the interview.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Quick and to the point. I had an offer verbally in two business days, and one 'in writing' (by email) in 5 busines days.
