    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, followed by technical interview and finally in-person interview. The in-person interview is yet to come, so no announcement as of yet. The technical interview was daunting, but should fit in line with skillset.

    Interview

    I applied to Esri through a temp agency because this position is only available from December to July. My fist point of communication with this company was with a phone interview with their Human Resource person. She asked me very general questions and basically ran through my resume. After this I was asked to come on-site for an in-person interview. I interviewed with a total of 3 people not including another interview I had to do with the HR person I had talked to interview on the phone with.

    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was long, but very friendly. I was walked from one Manager's office to another until everyone who wanted to interview me was complete. The experience felt more conversational than anything.Overall the process was fairly straightforward. However, I was told that they no longer interview in this fashion and that panel interviews are now the norm. The people are very friendly and understand that you are a student, so most of the questions are geared towards group projects, classes, and school involvement.

Pros: “Great benefits. The campus is beautiful and we have pretty good IT equipment. The holidays are good. Love the fact we get MLK day off. Not many companies recognize this as a holiday.

Profit sharing is awesome. Change to vesting as schedule is nice for 401k and profit sharing. You are fully vested after 3 years used to 7 years which was ridiculous. Nice to see corporate can make some tough decisions and get rid of dead weight like in HR and Marketing. Hope there can be more decisions done in the future.” – Full Review
