    I had applied for the position through the DAAD RISE Professional Internship Database. I got a call via email for a telephonic interview. My mentor interviewed me and started with a few questions about me. He then described abut my responsibilities and role as intern and asked how I would be a good fit. He then asked me what I expect to get out of this internship.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Evonik Industries (Blair, NE).

    Interview

    You will first have a phone interview with HR and the hiring manager. If it goes well, they will set up a site visit where you will interview for about 3 hours and take a quick tour of the site.

    The interview is split up into two sessions. Both sessions include you and two managers. In each session, the managers have a list of generic questions (about 10-20) that ask about how you have handled a bad situation in the past, how you deal with coworker conflict, how you have solved a problem in a previous job, etc.

    In the second interview session, the two new managers ask essentially the same questions, and your job is answer without duplicating your answers in the previous session.

    They will ask you a little about your experience, work history, why you want the position, etc. It isn't difficult, just long.

    No negotiation. This is entry level, and honestly, the offer was higher than I had expected.
