    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Intel Corporation in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Since the interview was through employee referral, the project manager arranged the interview.
    There was one telephonic round in which I had to explain about my current project and some questions related to device drivers.
    Subsequently, I was called for a face to face interview at Intel, Bangalore. This was a marathon with 6 interviewers coming in one after the other for a total of 6 hours. One focused on behavioural aspects and the rest were all technical. There were C questions (my preparation of having a look at the top 50 C questions in stackoverflow was quite useful). There were some questions on computer architecture and some on hardware aspects of device level communication protocols. Most interviewers based their questions around my project.
    Overall, I felt that this is how any company should conduct an interview if it is has to avoid dealing with bad candidates later. A few weeks later, the HR called and asked some details about my education and employment history.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Intel Corporation in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was initiated from department. Two/Three rounds of technical interview and final HR interview. All were telephonic interviews. Technical Questions were basics of digital design, they gave a choice though to choose the subject. HR questions are ethical questions, you must be honest in your answers. The interviewers were very friendly.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions will be asked from nowhere, but if you are good in basics it is easier to crack. One of the question was to design the digital logic for a majority encoder of 5 inputs.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Intel Corporation.

    Interview Details

    I have gone through Intel India interview process during placements in our college. There was CPI based shortlisting then 4 rounds of interviews were to be done. The first round of interview was based on C++/C/Java basics and other coding questions with some questions on project I have done. The next round was again a technical round in which they asked me solve puzzle, do some coding problems and some detailed discussion on research projects. The third round was more of a behavioral round in which we were given situations and we need to respond with what we would do in that situation. All others went through one more round, but I was taken 3 rounds and sent back. I was thinking that, they rejected me, finally when results were declared, I was selected :)
