IT Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Austin, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Home Depot in April 2014.

Interview Details – This was for one of ten IT Intern positions for the Austin Technology Center in Austin, TX. I spoke with multiple reps at the UT CNS career fair then was contact by a recruiter months later (late process) to have a phone call. Phone call was pretty much, "Why The Home Depot?" Then that lead to an onsite interview almost another month later. The onsite interview was a day long event where all the potential interns went to the ATC at 8:00am for breakfast, speakers, tours, and interviews throughout the day. Each potential was given one 30 minute one-on-one interview with managers that have projects lined up for the 12 week Summer internship. After that, they tell you that you would receive a decision phone call the following week.

Interview Question – The interview process did not have any SPECIFIC technical questions, but mainly personal questions like the following:

-Tell me about yourself.
-Tell me about a project you have done.

Then they would follow up and maybe ask questions of 'how' or 'why' for the things you said.
Ex. I spoke about a project I did for my Network Security and Privacy course where we exploited buffer overflows. The interviewer asked me to explain what they are and I proceeded to draw a picture of a simple exploit. I also brought my laptop in to show an ongoing project I was working on during the time from a class and they found it very impressive since I showed it to him and also explained my roll in the group project
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Asked for a verbal commitment, but stated officially you don't have to say anything until a week after this phone call. 12-week internship program, 40hrs/wk, and $20/hr. No negotiation on those terms (internship duh).

Interviewed at Home Depot

Interview Details – Applied online. Phone interview, process took about two weeks. They were very unprofessional. They were 30 minutes later than they said they would be. They were eating lunch, so I heard chewing the entire time. There were no behavioral questions: all scenarios. Sent an email a week later saying I didn't get an offer, then they sent another email six weeks later saying again that I didn't get an offer. Luckily, I received a far superior internship elsewhere, so I'm happy.

Interview Question – All they asked me about was Java terms. I was in my third week of learning it in school and they asked me all of these scenarios I hadn't learned yet.   Answer Question

Interview Details – University Campus Interview: I was asked both behavioral and technical questions. The behavioral questions are the usual questions such as "What is a problem you faced and how did you solve it?" and etc. The technical question consist of SQL and JAVA/Object Oriented Programming, such as what is encapsulation, aggregate functions, and etc.

Interview Question – Some questions they asked are what is inner join and outer join. It was too specific.   Answer Question
