    Met at a university career fair and had an interview schedule for the next day. Nothing out of the ordinary, mostly just technical fit. Next round is a video interview and there will be a 3rd round at the HQ in Dallas.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Texas Instruments in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I was asked for on-campus interview. Standard questions for technical sales took place such as " Why would you want to be a sales person?" or "Are you aware of the differences between Application Engineer and Tech. Sales" to confirm your attendance to the information session previous night.

    During 30 min. webcam interview, you are asked some behavoural questions as well as " what are the qualities of a tech sales person", "do you love to win or hate to lose?".

    During on site interview, you are asked to sell a vacation package. This is not very formal as they help you during the process and provide feedback. However, there is a 45 min behavioural interview with 2 regional sales/marketing managers. Try to be very communicative and talkative to demonstrate your sales side.

    Equipment Technician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Texas Instruments.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by two engineers and one senior technician. Was quite a while ago, so I don't recall everything that was discussed. Seemed fairly standard really. Had to take a pretty lengthy test first. Only went through one interview, then received an offer over the phone two days later.

    Interview Questions
    • The one thing I remember clearly was when the engineer took me into the test floor and made a sweeping motion toward the equipment. He said "all these machines do the same thing, they make money." I replied, "except for the ones that aren't working, that's where I come in." He really liked that answer.

      Again, the rest of the interview was standad fair. Nothing difficult, and no "gotcha" questions.
