I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GKN.

Interview Details – I was called in after applying on my school's career site for a job fair with around 20 or 30 other students. They gave a presentation about the company and the positions open. We then were called in a few at a time by the respective departments. The interview itself was just one on one with the manager or engineer of the department.
