Interview

I was interviewed at my university after the career fair. It was only two other men, and it was pretty chill. They asked me some basic questions, like about my GPA and classes I will be taking. Biggest strengths, what classes I enjoy, etc. They were very friendly and I hope to hear from them soon. I sent two follow up emails and they said they are wrapping up campus interviews next week.

I accepted, the interview lasted about 20 minutes STAR format, very nice people. The next day at night I received an email saying I was not part of the group of people that got 2nd interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Southern Company in November 2010.

    Interview

    Applied through on campus Co-op Interview Day. On campus interview was relatively superficial (not technical or about the position), don't really remember it.

    Had a phone interview 2-3 days later with future manager and another co-worker. Mostly explained the type of work and asked if I had any experience with some tools they used.

    The next week I had an onsite panel interview with the team I would be working for. These were pretty canned, common questions and they went around the table asking me one at a time.

    I received a call from HR with the offer about an hour after the interview
