    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    This was a very Odd interview. This hiring mgr is recent import from India , who doesnt understand the culture in USA. For the first interview schedule, the hiring manager, blew it off and went home. There was no cancellation, decline of the meeting invite. He has no respect for the candidate's time , and says he just felt like leaving work, so he left. And he is not apologetic about it.
    For the second interview schedule, he calls 15 minutes late for the meeting. No apology.
    He has not read the resume and doesnt know which position I would be interviewed for.
    He is not able to identify one aspect of his own product, that needs focus on. This is a mature product.
    When asked for clarification of any interview question, he responds with " dont teach me PM, I have 20 year experience".

    And he is unable to understand the concept that an interview is a two way evaluation process. And that the candidate can reject the job too. He retaliates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online. I got an email from a recuriter to set up a phone screen with a technical manager. Then a week later I had another interview with a different technical manager. The phone screens were unusual. The first interviewer spent nealy half of the interview talking about self-driving cars (there was nothing in the description that indidcated the role involved technology for self driving cars) and the second interviewer told me my in depth explination was invalid because I described the first algorithm that appeared on google. I followed up with the recruiter about the phone screens and didn't get a respone. Not a great/coherent experience.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    I applied online with a diligent cover letter. I was contacted the next day by a recruiter to set up a half-hour phone interview. In the week leading up to the interview, I spent 1-2 hours every day researching the company and taking notes. The first interview was with the hiring manager – it was direct and we talked mostly about the role. About a week later, I was contacted to schedule a second phone interview with the team’s senior manager. The interview followed a similar format and was very conversational. I received an excellent offer about a week later.

    Two things helped me get this internship: 1. Lots of research of the company’s past, present and future, and 2. Maintaining a growth-focused discussion (I.e. how I will grow and how the team will grow).
