I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gensler in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online in January 2014 and got their email for interview in February. I live in S.F. so I choose online interview and they sent me a gotomeeting invitation. It is a nice interview! They two architects who are the interviewer are very nice, just chatting, I think. They asked me about my background and my portfolio. Then they talked about the internship program. Actually I think for those who are reading this message, probably you've got an invitation for interview, and it's very likely they will give you an offer! Good luck and God bless you!

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Gensler in June 2013.
Interview Details – A very positive and painless process in all. I had 2 phone interviews. One was a general screening interview by the recruiter (I think because my cell phone number had an odd area code which led them to think I was out of town), then she scheduled a phone conference where I spoke with 3 people using GoToMeeting's video conferencing. I was asked to come in for an in-person interview almost immediately after the phone conference, where I met the team and spoke more about my experience and what I was looking for. The conversations were very relaxed; we went through my portfolio and how I would approach visual design.
Interview Question – The most difficult questions probably were during the initial phone screening since they were specific questions, instead of questions about my work. Example of questions include: What does the word "creative" mean to you? Describe 3 qualities that make you attractive. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 8 months - interviewed at Gensler in April 2012.
Interview Details – Long process from initial contact to final offer; partly due to uncertainty around their hiring needs. Kept positive and persistent and it paid off!

Interview Details – I applied online for an internship in February, I believe. Sent a resume and a few work samples. I heard from them about a month later via email, saying they reviewed my portfolio and resume and would like to continue with a phone interview. I picked a day that worked for me..they called right on time. The interview lasted about 30 minutes and was overall a pleasant experience although I was nervous, initially! They asked questions about my schooling, what I expected from an internship experience, what kinds of computer skills I had, etc. They asked for any other school projects I could show them, so I emailed them afterwards with attachments of additional projects. A week later they called me asking me if I would like to come and work for them for the summer! They also sent an email. I accepted a few days later and that was that!! It was a great experience.
