    Graduate Technical Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews with two members of the team. First interview was not great but the second one was great. They asked me about the skills needed to do the internships and also about my PhD work. They needed someone for a long term internship like 9 months or more. I was OK with that.

    Interview Questions
    • Before preparing for the phone screen, have a good look at the job req. Make sure you advertise those of your skill that are needed for the job. It is ok not to have all the skills. Nobody has that.   Answer Question

    Senior RF Hardware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Santa Clara, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I had several phone interviews and then invited for on-site. The phone interviews went well and I was reasonably interested to go for on-site, so I did. Around 12 people interviewed me through out the day and it was certainly exhausting. Most of the sessions were technical with some behavorial questions. Most people were really nice and polite. It is a new college grad position but I was asked questions which needed relevant industry experience to answer properly. I was clear about my qualifications and background before interviewing. I was nonetheless asked and grilled about topics I have nothing to do with. That was a little frustrating.

    Reasons for Declining

    Job prospects did not excite me. The job seems more suited to MS level, not PhD.
