    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AMD.

    Interview

    My friend referred me for the position and I got HR feedback in a few days. She asked a bunch of questions. I replied, and the HR said the hiring manager would like to talk to me. She asked my available time for the next week. I replied again and waited until Thursday to follow up. The waiting and following up circles kept around 2 months. Even after I get other offers and asked for final clarification, the HR still replied nothing.

    Interview

    Process started with a phone screen, followed by a on site interview and then discussions with HR executive.

    Phone screen was average and explained the role and requirements.
    On site interview was tough as they look for all the basics for the role.

    Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX (US)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    Standard phone screen first, followed up with about half a day of interviews. This was for a firmware engineering position for a SOC type of architecture. The questions on site is mostly technical and focused a lot on how you would solve a particular problem. I find it really refreshing because a lot of interviews tends to focus on "do you know what this volatile keyword do?" which is useful but doesn't really gauge a candidate's capability. They focused far more on problem solving skills, asking questions and debug scenarios on things you have not done before, on how you solved prior difficult situations at your previous experience, etc. Be prepared to think outside of the box. I also find that the people who did the interview are very sharp and smart engineers and that is a major plus in the decision process. It was a really good and engaging process but you should definitely be prepared to be challenged.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interview questions was to give a real-life debug scenario on a processor/platform that I have not worked on before. I find the question to be challenging and actually really enjoyed the process of going through the debug. I would rate it as a hard question but overall a really great experience.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at AMD (Austin, TX (US)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    STAY AWAY --- Standard process, Hr questions, technical questions, on-site. The HR representative was UNETHICAL UNPROFESSIONAL through out the process. Didn't disclose offer details even when repeatedly asked, didn't address concerns, I gave my reasons (2X) why offer would be accepted/rejected. HR guy PUSHED for verbal acceptable saying details will be disclosed in the offer. I was lied to when offer came in, items discussed where eliminated and what I agreed too was completely different to what was written. Sent response declining written offer with explanation, HR guys response was to never contact him. Absolutely unethical and unprofessional behavior from a person representing a company, no class.

    Member of Technical Staff Product Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at AMD (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    Typical flow:
    HM phone screen
    On-site interviews a week later (7x1hr sessions)
    Received offer a few days later

    In my experience, the engineering and management teams (in the product development field) are very skilled. They're not all about technical stuff...they do see you as someone that's more than just a walking textbook or a programmed computer.

    Tips to crack the interview:
    - Know about topics mentioned in your resume inside out (kinda duh!)
    - Listen carefully to their description of the job and their expectations of you. Then ask questions/have conversations about them (proves that your interest in the role is genuine)
    - Attitude is everything. You could be the most knowledgeable person on the planet, but if you don't have the right attitude towards work and your potential peers, they wouldn't want you on their team.

    Good luck!
