    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg (Russia)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg (Russia)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Undergraduate Hardware Intern position.

    Was first contacted by the HR and then invited for a single-round f2f interview.
    Had a conversation with two Hardware Engineers and a Manager. The questions were mostly technical, but overall easy/average if you know your field.
    After the interview I was asked to solve a test problem at home. The task was to create a Verilog module (some matrix-related mathematics), and provide some building scripts, testing scenarios and documentation for that. The trick was to create two versions of the design: area-efficient and time-efficient, which required to use different algorithms, essentially doubling the task. It took me one week to solve the problem and prepare everything.

    Interview Questions
    • Write some Verilog code that would infer latches. Draw the respective circuit. How to avoid latches in the code?
      Discrete Fourier transform formula and explanation.
      Estimate as closely as possible the time that you need to solve the test problem.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, because it was my first job.

    Creative Accounts Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    Process started out promising and moved at an average 2-3 week pace with two rounds of phone interviews. Was then flown from Bay Area to Hillsboro, OR for in-person interviews. Environment felt frenzied and I have never witnessed so many fast walkers. I felt like I was intruding on the hiring manager's busy day, as he was stressed with work - but it did provide me with insight with regards to how he handled pressure. Met with five team members. Interviews ranged from basic conversation to downright odd. I was taken aback by a strategist who seemed like he didn't even know who he was interviewing. He asked questions that were irrelevant and provided zero insight into my abilities. Overall, I was disappointed with the experience and will chalk it down as just that - an experience.

    Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with a hiring manager reaching out to me to coordinate a phone interview, the actual phone interview/screening that lasted for about 30 minutes, and the on-site interview. This hiring manager was not the actual hiring manager for the position I interviewed for when I was brought in for the on-site interview. The entire face-to-face interview was for 3-1/2 hours where I spoke with 5 Intel employees that included the actual hiring manager, hardware and software engineers, and a management staff member.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were fair and based on my experience and what they look for in candidates. Since I was fairly well-prepared for both the phone and on-site interviews, I answered all the questions with confidence. As (I) expected for engineering interviews, some of the questions involved (a) processes in test and manufacturing environments, (b) test methods, (c) electrical diagrams, and (d) situational and behavioral questions.   View Answer
