    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Qualcomm in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    First round of technical interview followed by three rounds of onsite technical interview followed by HR round. Technical rounds are quite grilling for full time hires. When it comes to part time hires, the interview is more dependent on the team that you are giving the interview for. For test roles the interview process isn't much grilling.
