    Software Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Qualcomm.

    Interview Details

    I was selected by my recruiter to interview with Qualcomm, with very little details.

    The interview was almost 100% technical, with little regard to what was already on my resume. Overall, it was a depressing experience: the questions were all trivia (no problem solving/whiteboarding), the interviewer didn't even tell me his name, and he smiled twice the entire forty five minutes.

    Qualcomm is amazing when it comes to its hiring and interview process. They are extremely accommodating and the hiring team is very helpful and attentive. When I got my interview, they made sure to accommodate my schedule. My interviews were all phone interviews.

    Went to the campus info session and gave the resume to the recruiter. Had a phone interview with the recruiter one week later. First went through the resume for about twenty minutes, and then had several tech questions. They were all in C and very basic.

    Had one on-campus interview after the career fair. Didn't get an offer. Later I had two phone interviews and got an offer. The interview questions are fair. Not too hard comparing to some other software companies.

    Interview Details

    Very straightforward and fast, 2 Interviews, 1 for QCT and 1 for R&D. If you just interview for QCT then there will be 1 interview. Both were about the same level of difficulty. Just be sure to ask a lot of questions about their experience and demonstrate a lot of interest/knowledge about what Qualcomm actually does.
