    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Texas Instruments in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisting of three stages. HR, Technical and Presentation. Very generic and very friendly approach to all the interviews with nothing difficult at all. The technical questions were problem solving questions and no related to the specific job. Presentation was given on my latest team project that I completed at University so fresh on the mind and not complicated at all. Very nice people

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview Details

    Started by applying for the semiconductor manufacturing intern position on the college career website as well as online in early to mid September.

    About a month later I get an email stating that I have been selected for an on-campus interview in mid October. The on-campus interview was a general behavioral interview. They specifically asked what I knew about the semiconductor manufacturing process and why I wanted to work in this industry. A week after this interview I get an email that said that they're continuing to review my application and will contact me if they are going to continue the application process with me.

    After almost a month with no contact I get a call from HR asking if I was free for a phone interview with 2 plant managers the very next day. I agreed and a conference call was set up, though the details of how to connect were not sent to me until the morning of the interview. The phone interview was slightly awkward as I was talking to one manager for a few minutes before the other one connected, and thus I had to repeat a lot of things I had already said. They once again asked what I knew about the manufacturing process and why the semiconductor industry. The interview was as much informational as it was answer questions.

    A week after the phone interview I received an offer.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview Details

    I was refered by a current employee. After filling out an online application I had an online interview. The interview was automated and I had to record myself answering 7 behavioral questions. The questions were about times that I had to work with an uncooperative partner/ times that I failed at something. The next interview was a skype interview with two applications engineers. This was very technical. They asked me questions about my resume and about my general knowledge of electrical engineerin.

    I applied online and had two online interviews. One of which asked to answer a few questions by myself, the other was actually talking to a representative. The questions were not too difficult, but it was hard to convey communication skills while not in person.

    I applied online with a referral and within a few days they sent an email asking for me to take 5 minute "get to know you interview." This was basically a screening to make sure you are able to talk to someone. The next phase was a 30 minute online live interview with a representative. And the final phase was they flew me down to dallas for a welcome dinner and two interviews and a simulation the next day.

    Summer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was part of Texas Instruments India's campus internship programmes (for pre-final year students). It began with a pre-placement talk by TI India in which they explained the benefits of working at TI, the challenges faced, etc. It was more of an informative session which was concluded with their announcement of an online test to be held later.

    The online test was held around a month after the session. It consisted of two parts - a technical part, in which the basics of electronics were tested (basic OP-AMPs, RLC circuits, Bode plots, etc.), and an aptitude part (general probability-based questions, division of x chocolates among y children, etc).

    Around a month after that, the shortlisted candidates were intimated and were told that the next round would be held soon. The details weren't intimated as to where it would be held and the exact date. After a month, they were contacted again and were informed of the venue and the date of the further rounds.

    The first interview round comprised a tete-a-tete in which the main focus was on circuit basics, viz. amplifier configurations, fundamental OP-AMP concepts (for example, questions like What is negative feedback and why is it important?), transfer functions of RLC circuits (LPF, HPF, etc.), and a few questions related to ideal voltmeters, ammeters, voltage and current sources, etc.

    The results were announced soon after everyone was done with their interviews and the shortlist for the second round was immediately announced. After about 15 minutes, the second round began. This time around, the applicants were interviewed by two people together, and questions were similar to the ones asked in the first round (a few variations here and there, but more or less sticking to the very basics; a little trickily framed questions though).

    After the second round, the shortlisted candidates had an HR round in which basic personal details, plans for post-graduation, a bit of trivia about Texas Instruments, etc were asked and the personalities of the prospective interns were gauged.

    Around 15 minutes after the HR round, the hired interns were announced and were presented with the offer letters. It was a good experience overall and it became clear that for one to become a TI intern, their fundamentals of electronics must be crystal clear, and the person should have a good presence of mind during the course of the interview, not to mention, keep calm as well.
