    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Corning (Corning, NY).

    Interview

    Interiew process was brutal but very effective. I was told weeks in advance that I was expected to give a presentation about myself. General background info as well highlighting a project I was particularly proud of. I presented this to the interview team of 8 or 9 people. Then after about 45 minutes, we broke off 1:1 with each person for more tech deep dive. Interview ended with a tour of the facility with the hiring manager. Entire process took all day.

    Easy Interview

    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.
