    Interview Details

    They contacted me via email after numerous attempts to contact someone in the group. I applied online but it was disregarded. Eventually a friend of mine handed over my resume and I was invited. There were 5-6 interviewers in the room that tried to fail me, it felt like they already had someone in their mind for the position.

    Interview Questions
    • They didnt really explain well the questions. Questions like "How do you manage a fixed point design". I tried to make they clarify but they replied with the same question.   Answer Question

    interviewed at Qualcomm in February 2013.

    I just finished the phone interview today, and may not be given on-site because this job actually requires years of working experience. The interviewer is very nice and questions are very clear and give me hints. And finally after the interview, he even suggested some more suitable positions.

    • Very basic questions about GPS, Kalman filter and C programming.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received phone call indicating they were interested in interviewing me followed by an email with a list of people I would interview with. The process was fairly disorganized with people coming and going at random times as the interview progressed with up to 8+ people in the room at certain times. Questions revolved around skills indicated on resume, and required drawing and coding on a whiteboard.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Qualcomm in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Student interview at my university. Interviewer was very nice, and asked about stuff I've done on my resume. He seemed interested in what I've done. He described the job to me, and asked me on the spot whether I would take the job now. He also called me twice later repeating the question. Interview wasn't very technical in nature, but he asked whether or not I knew about threading, and locks.
