    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NXP Semiconductors (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter and manager were very friendly and communicative. The phone screen and the follow up took about a week and the personal interview was setup a week later and the results took another week. The interview involved 11 people and was a panel interview in groups of 2, for over 4-5hrs. The team was very friendly and I had to decline the offer for personal reasons but it was a very good team to work with.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NXP Semiconductors (Austin, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewed with four people from the department. The first started with insults and lies right off the bat and continually checking his phone for the full half hour. I would have stood up and walked out after about five minutes except that I was working with an external recruiter and did not want to burn that bridge. The remaining three interviewers were nothing but pleasant. However, I would not have accepted an offer even if one had been extended.
