    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

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in February 2013.

    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.
