    I applied online – interviewed at Corning (Harrodsburg, KY).

    First the individual 1:1 phone interview. After that I was asked to come in for an onsite interview which consisted of a 30 min presentation in front of who could potentially be colleagues followed by 10-15 min of questioning. After the presentation I had several 1:1 interviews with the hiring manager, process engineers directors, and possible colleagues.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Corning in March 2015.

    Interview

    Dropped a resume at my university's engineering career fair and got a fast response about open internship positions. I was pretty busy at the time and wasn't able to type up answers to some behavioral questions they sent until a few weeks later. I was pleasantly surprised to hear back from them the next morning and got a phone interview set up for a few days later. The recruiter who initially contacted me was very helpful and seemed like he really wanted me to get the offer. The supervisor who interviewed me was also friendly and very easy to talk to.
