    Started with an hour phone interview. Technical with reference to my resume and making sure I could explain all of my projects well. The interview ended with a technical question involving basic circuit elements.
    Second phone interview was entirely technical. I was emailed a pdf with 8 questions to solve in an hour over the phone.
    Final interview I was flown to San Jose for an onsite. Full technical interviews with 5 people, including the manager. Everyone was really nice and I thought I did very well. Unfortunately, I never heard from them again despite sending follow up emails.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about an hour. It was both a phone interview and then for the technical we switched to google hangout. The first half was basic get to know you questions. The hiring manager was very kind and informative. He seemed very interested about finding out about my interest on engineering and technology. He asked about my previous work experience and specifically one project that I worked on during the summer. There were questions about what was my favorite class and why I wanted to become an engineer. The second half of the interview was about basic engineering 101 questions. Basic circuits and how different electrical components effect the circuit. The interviewer was interested in the logic or process of solving the problem and not as much in the answer.

    • How an inductor and capacitor effect the voltage output in a circuit?   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Maxim Integrated (San Jose, CA (US)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with technical questions. They schedule a phone interview. Then when they call you, they'll send you some questions to answer. Get ready to go back and study your EE fundamentals. The guy on the phone was really helpful though. Everyone is going to have an opamp or two questions on the interview so do study up on that.

    Interview Questions

    • Know your op amp. Some bode plot questions and RL, RC circuit. Maybe some transistor amplifier stuff.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Not too hard. Practical questions are asked instead of just theory. Talked to the program manager first and then another two engineers, each for about 45 minutes. People are nice there. Sent them an email after interview and got response a day later.
