    Entretien de Intern

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Pas d’offre d’emploi
    Expérience positive
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Arm.

    Entretien

    I applied on ARM website. I was contacted by HR 3 weeks later for a phone interview with two engineers. They were quite nice and friendly. The first few questions were on quite simple stuff (what is a pipeline, why is it used, what is cache, what is an MMU) but they implied other questions as we dug deeper into the subject (like give me a few examples of branch prediction algorithms etc.). Then they asked about the projects I did at school and during my professional experience year, but didn't go much deeper than that. They asked why I chose the internship I was interviewing for, and then I asked a few questions. They said they were quite satisfied, and that they planned on giving me a final answer 3 weeks later. There only was one round of interview for this position.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • What is a pipeline? How many stages is there in general? why are we using this, why is it bad to have too many stages? What is branch prediction, what algorithms are used? How can one avoid waiting for the data to be stored in the memory, and use it right away? What is cache? why we use it? What is the access time of cache? what is a cache miss? How big is it (roughly)? What is an MMU? What is it used for?   1 réponse

    Entretien de Software Intern

    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Arm.

    Entretien

    Premier entretien après l'envoi de la candidature. On reçoit dans le mail un lien HireView valable trois jours ouvrables pour passer un entretien vidéo. Ce n'est pas un entretien en direct, mais enregistré.
    Des questions plus ou moins techniques sont posées.
    30 secondes de préparation pour chaque question, puis 3 minutes pour répondre.

    Ensuite, j'ai eu un test de code assez simple ou il fallait compter le nombre de bits à 1 dans un nombre en décimal. Des tests sur les exemples simples sont fournis dans l'interface. Bizarrement, il n'y avait pas de limite de temps pour coder.

    Entretien de Principal Design Engineer

    Employé anonyme - Antibes
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience négative
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Arm (Antibes) en février 2012.

    Entretien

    Il y a un test tres technique d'une heure puis on voit une dizaine de personne, chacun pendant 1/2 heure. Les questions lors des entretiens sont tres techniques et il y a des exercices a faire sur tableau: exercice de design, de software en langage C, un entretien en anglais pour voir le niveau.
    Ces tests de connaissances sont assez decorreles du travail de tous les jours, et ne permettent pas forcement de deceler le potentiel ni la motivation de quelqu'un.

    Entretien

    Appel très rapide (35 min) par des manageurs très ennuyées. Aucune question sur mon expérience, que de questions sur les domaines ou je n'ai pas d’expérience. Un entretien juste pour tuer une candidature de trop. Arm est une grosse compagnie et ils disent recevoir beaucoup de CVs...

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Arm.

    Entretien

    The interviews followed a standard pattern:

    - Phone discussion with a recruiter:
    The focus was on general career interests and goals. Along with how those interests and goals might align with the given job.

    - Phone discussion with the hiring manager:
    This time the discussion focused on the job itself and how that might align with my career interests and goals. This was the first chance for me to dig deep with questions about the job to make sure I was interested. This part of the process usually determines if I'm interested or not in the job. In this case, it turned my interest up.

    - Onsite interview:
    A series of 1hr interviews. There were 5 of them if I remember right. I also had lunch with the hiring manager.

    Each interviewer focused on a different area. For example, one focused on general SoC architecture, another on software, another on debug, another on my previous projects and how I dealt with challenges, etc. etc. My impression was that they were more concerned with how I walked through and thought about different problems that were presented to me, and also if I have a solid history of good performance. Not so much on if I answered everything 100% accurately. Though, I'm sure I answer most of everything right.

    There wasn't much overlap between the interviewers which means they actually prepared an interview strategy. That's a good thing, I've been in interviews where I would end up answering the same exact question 5 times from 5 different people! Last, the interviews were very conversational, it didn't feel like an interrogation. I was also allowed plenty of time to ask my own questions.

    My impressions were very positive. In the past I've walked out interviews thinking "Wow, those folks were disorganized and didn't seem to know what job I was interviewing for...." I didn't have that feeling here.

    • I was asked some C questions. However the focus wasn't on programming something, it was more about understanding how different parts of memory are used within the program.   1 réponse

    The initial process was good . Most people were friendly and professional.
    There was 1 individual who kept asking questions which were not in my domain and which i had no idea of. I told him that i am not aware of that domain and he was still persistent with the questions. Basically i lost interest in the interview after that...

    They have a very poor interview process . Everything is so poorly organized. They will not be prepared with your details and will not worry about your time schedule.

    Instructions aren't well relayed to the candidates. Poor communication between recruiter and hiring manager.

    Entretien de Applications Engineer

    Employé anonyme - Plano, TX (États-Unis)
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Arm (Plano, TX (États-Unis)) en mars 2015.

    Entretien

    Applied for the job, and a received an email from a recruiter asking if I was interested in working in the Plano office. After that I was scheduled for a phone interview the next week. The phone interview was scheduled to be an hour long, but only lasted 10-15 minutes. After the interview, the recruiter emailed me saying they were interested in a second interview at their office (Their company policy mandates that the interview and hiring process is handled by the recruiter so most of my communication was through the recruiter). The second interview lasted two hours. I was first interviewed by the office manager, and then I was interviewed by one of the application engineers. All of the technical questions were asked by the application engineer. However, the questions were more about my resume and what I had worked and was familiar with more than questions testing my knowledge. A couple of days after the interview I received a phone call from the recruiter telling me they thought the interview went well, and decided to offer me the position!

    Négociation

    I think there was an opportunity to negotiate some of the terms of the offer, but I was very happy with the original offer so I accepted it immediately.
