    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at DST Systems (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    (I am not sure about the job title, but it's certainly an software engineering intern.)
    Almost ten days after a career fair, the recruiter called me immediately without making an apointment, then we decided the phone interview time. Serveral days later, he called me on time, and asked me several behavior questions, which was about 15 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at DST Systems.

    Interview

    I first met with a DST Systems On Campus Representative at my school. I had a phone interview a week later. About 3 months later, I was contacted for an interview at the Kansas City Office. The email about the interview had sounded like their would be a team of hiring managers, but there was only one hiring manager and it did not sound like he had prepared for the interview. I did not feel well about the hiring process. That has concerned me about working there, since I had already read about their management challenges.

    Interview

    The Recruiter did a good job in the getting to know you phase but lacked follow-up. I was told that he was presenting my information to the hiring manager and he was very optimistic about my candidacy. I never heard back from him after leaving messages by phone and email. Still no response.

    Interview

    Having their own in house recruiters does make the interview process very simple. You know who you are interviewing with before you go in. It is not that technical of an interview but more or a personality and behavioral process review. However, feedback is given when requested but you might get bypassed just for having a family that would hinder your work performance.
