    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Mesa, AZ (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    There were two half-hour phone interviews and a face-to-face interview. Nearly all contact was with the hiring manager leading up to the face-to-face interview. The interview was conducted by the hiring manager, two marketing leads, an engineering senior, and an engineer. I got a few emails from HR, but never did discuss anything with HR. HR was not responsive to inquiries. Cirrus pays for travel expenses to and from the interview site.

    Analog Design Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone screen, then they invited me for an interview, and they asked for references. My references had to fill in a questionnaire about me, before the on site interview. The on site interview was postponed once without explanation.
    Cirrus had their travel agency arrange the flights between the SF Bay Area where I live and Austin. Although there are direct flights between Silicon Valley and Austin the travel agency didn't book direct flights (and they also don't do that for Cirrus employees I've heard.) The travel agency also booked the hotel and a rental car.

    Cirrus gave me a map which indicated 3 places where I could park the car, the parking garage for visitors (which was already full at 8.15AM) and two parking lots, of which one turned out not to have places for Cirrus Logic employees/visitors anymore.
    I first had a talk with their recruiter in a meeting room and after that I was escorted from interviewer to interviewer. I came back to that meeting room a few times.
    It was a surprise to some of the interviewers that they had to do an interview, I even heard one interviewer exclaim 'O no'.
    I was asked to bring extra resumes, that turned out to be necessary. Most interviewers had my resume on screen but in one case the interviewer was not able to pull my resume up so I had to give him one of the resumes I brought.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic (Austin, TX (US)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who forwarded my resume to the hiring manager. Later there was a telephonic interview covering fundamentals of Analog design. I was invited to their HQs in Austin and met around 10 people who interviewed me. I was asked to analyze circuits and reason out their noise, frequency and power performance. All the interviewers were very cordial and gave me ample time to present my understanding.
    They are more interested in your approach. Be patient with yourself.

    Interview

    HR emailed me to setup a 1-hour phone interview. The hiring manger called me later on. The interview was all about basic analog and digital signal processing concept questions. If you have strong analog background, it should be fairly simple.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cirrus Logic in March 2015.

    Interview

    Intially they mailed me that they would interested in a quick phone screen. Phone screening was ok but very unprofessional. Two people interviewed me and they were very uninterested. No technical questions. Just asked about my projects in resume. I was told tgat i will be getting the review as soon as possible. I have sent a thank you email but no reply. After a week i again sent a mail inquiring about my position and not a even single mail or phone call they responded. Its been a month and not even a reject mail. As this was my first interview i was excited to know how far i am good in the interview but there was no reject mail atleast. Very unprofessional. And i realised that i should check the jobvite status. It says that the position is closed. This is totally a negative experience for me.
