    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AMD (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    One telephone interview followed by a day-long onsite interview. The interviewers were well prepared, and each one focused on a specific skill. Overall, people were very pleasant but tough. Although, I was put in some other team rather than the one I interviewed with, the job responsibilities were very similar, and the management was willing to listen to my interests.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AMD in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through a former co-worker. Got a call from hiring manager. It was a quick 30 min phone interview. After this, got invited to on-site interview. On-site interview was not tough, except for few difficult ( for me ) technical questions. I could answer 80=90 %. But sometimes I found it hard to understand why some interviewing persons tone was as if you have done something wrong, just because you went there to get interviewed, and they are the boss of you now. I found it hard to understand why a candidate must be treated as if he/she is inferior person than person at AMD. I felt sometimes that tone of person interviewing was hostile without any provocation. At least to me it seemed odd. But once I got over it, it was ok. Also some people and AMD were very good in treating you with common courtesy/good manners.
