    Application

    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.

    Process was fairly quick after being contacted. On-site interview consisted of day long 1 on 1 interviews with various people that you would work with/report to if you were to get the job. Also had to make a presentation and presented (~15 min) to a group of engineers in the division. Overall the process was fairly relaxed and informal.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Corning in September 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview followed by office interviews. Corning is a classy company. Everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Each step of the process took a long time but I think this shows how careful the company is in candidate screening which is a great thing.

    The interviews with the hiring managers were comfortable for me because we spoke of the technical aspects of the job as well as the culture of the department. All of this was a very positive experience. The more difficult interviews were with the executives and the Human Resources Department. These were short but contained the more standard interviewing questions and focus on communicating expectations of the job.
