    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Interstate Batteries.

    Interview Details

    I had 4 interviews before hired. Phone, manager, team, directors. The first two had some skills testing that reasonably fit the job. Don't overdress. Business casual is best. Suit and tie would be overkill. Some folks wear shorts and many wear neon sneakers. There interview rooms weren't ideal, but the tone was hospitable. Feel comfortable to ask anything.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person - interviewed at Interstate Batteries.

    Interview Details

    My interview process was laid back and was very informal. We sat down and at lunch at local restaurant and talked about some things that were going on in the news and eventually transitioned to some of your more generic interview questions. Most of the questions evenly balanced between personality and work experience.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Interstate Batteries in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview was like a fireing squad. One of the interviewers asked me a particular technology question which i answered correctly, but it was not the answer he was looking for. He proceeded to tell me i was wrong and i argued with him. Needless to say i was not impressed with the skill set of the interviewing panel.
