    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR) in August 2014.

    Interview

    One on one interview with the supervisor of the department. The interview was mostly a conversation regarding my past experience and what type of opportunity I was looking for. Be prepared to discuss personal interests and hobbies. Overall the interview was more a conversation than a typical question based interview. I received an offer the day after my interview and was given a month to consider accepting it.

    Marketing Business Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mentor Graphics (Wilsonville, OR) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview for marketing business analyst though. Firstly, they changed the job description and the coordinator sent me a JD which I hadn't even applied for! I reached back to them on this and it was corrected. The interview was very short- They were looking for an IT based skill set which was not described in the JD and was a clear mismatch. Overall a very very unplanned, unorganized disappointing process.
