Skyworks interview questions - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Got an interview coming up with Skyworks in a couple weeks. I have about 5 years experience with GaAs amplifier design, but think the position is more for Si, like transceiver work, maybe antenna switches (HEMT). Any "insider" information available for types of questions that will be asked? How are these guys (and gals) to work with? I want to stay in the area (no relocation), so they fit my needs pretty well - just want to make sure I fit theirs.

How about pay to expect, benefits, vacation? I know it is taboo to ask that at the interview, so again any insider info would be appreciated.

So any scoop you guys can provide will be much appreciated. Thanks.

As far as benefits, go to their websites, most companies will post it.

I looked, but they don't give specifics like how many vacation days, sick days, etc. I'd also like to know how good their health plan is. I have a family of four (2 kids), all relatively healthy, but some companies really cheap out on health benefits these days. I especially hate HMOs.

How about stock options?

So, any insider info would be apprecaited. Thanks.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
