    Interview Details

    I applied through on campus recruiting and got an interview a couple days later after turning in resume and cover letter. The interview lasted for half an hour and they were all behavioral questions. It is a fair interview for most of the prepared candidates. The position I applied is in MO and I think the person conducted our interview was also an engineer.
