    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Online test followed by an onsite interview. The onsite lasts about 90 mins with a group of engineers. On the onsite, expect to code on a white board. I'm absolutely disappointed with the recruiting process. After my onsite, I had to reach out to the recruiter weekly to get some updates. At this point, I don't even know if I'm still being considered (every-time I email the recruiter, I find out that I'm still being considered).

    When a candidate makes it onsite, I expect a rejection or an offer. How would you like it if you gave me an offer and I disappeared? Sounds unprofessional to me. Respect your candidates time. After this experience, I don't want to apply or work for them.

    Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Huntsville, AL (US)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was unorganized and my interviewers didn't seem ready to give an interview. After an introduction, a random employee was asked to interview me with no preparation. He asked questions and got the terminology wrong, then wondered how I didn't know the answer. I was also asked what my dream company to work for is, as if it would be this one rather than a Silicon Valley company.
