    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at AMD.

    Interview Details

    Standard interview questions for programming job. One debugging question. One recursion question. One problem with using gates (come up with some logic). About 6 people. 1 person takes you for lunch at the cafeteria. Hiring process was overall ok. I got proper phone and/or email updates during the process. overall experience was ok. Interviewers were sort of "normal" in the sense that they weren't intimidating nor ultra friendly - just had a normal interviewer poker face.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at AMD in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview went on smooth but coming to result dont know why they delay. we dont even know whether we are rejected or under consideration for the position. AMD should improve its interaction with the candidates. They donot even respond to emails once the interview is done.

    Interview Details

    Basically, same as what normal interview is doing.. self intro, general question, q&a, get question based on your answer, just normal and usual interview. You will get it neutral and nice. Just be confident, be yourself. Show your quality and yourself.
    You need to be yourself and confident. That’s the tips

    Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at AMD.

    Interview Details

    After a brief phone screen, you move on to the on-site interview. These interviews are intense - generally 5 or 6 one hour interviews with engineers and managers of all levels. Very technical. Make sure to study up. If you get stuck, the interviewer will help spur you on - they want to know how you reason through a problem if you don't already know the answer.

    Interview Questions
    • "Have you ever looked at how a real processor is designed?" (in response to a description of my graduate design project. Out of the 5 or 6 interviews, at most one will try to push your buttons, and maybe none. But be ready to handle yourself in case it happens.   Answer Question
