    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Steelcase in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Someone wanted to hire on an intern with capability in general development and 3D graphics. I was referred through a friend, who was hired on after our professor was emailed about potential candidates for the position.

    I only had one interview with general questions, showing I had general competence in communication and programming, as well as prior work experience.

    I don't know what the normal application process is, mine was a special case, as it was through an employee referral for a specific job.

    very good interview experience. They have other people in your potential team interview you normally. The interview lasted a while - with different groups of people interviewing and using pre-determined questions. which is good - because they are not recruiters, but possible co-workers.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Steelcase in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    When I applied online, I got an email from the team asking to set up an interview. I was coming from a really small marketing firm, and had never studied HR before, but I still got the interview. I interviewed with the Human Resource Shared Services team leader, as well as two current interns. They asked me questions from a standard list of questions they all had, and wrote down my answers. They then explained their experiences as interns. I left feeling like it went well, and I got an offer about a week later.

    • I don't remember any questions because it was so long ago   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I could negotiate my start date, but I didn't really have any say in my salary at all (but that was fine because it was a lot higher than expected)
