    Interviewer was very stern, as if trying to pressure me off balance. Be prepared to answer rapid-fire questions and think on your feet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Johnson Controls (Houston, TX) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Started with informational session on campus. Signed up for interview at that time. Real laid-back 1:1 interview. Had me switch rooms on the fly (maybe an interview tactic?. Had a few "tell me about yourself" basic background questions at first, but settled down and just conversed after that. Interviewer was real nice, had family from same town as me so that helped. Told me what position he thought I would best be suited for (it was the position I was interviewing for). Said he would recommend I get called back, still waiting to hear back two weeks later. Interviewing 80+ on campus, so I'm sure it's taking some time.
