I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at NGP VAN in November 2013.
Interview Details – Found posting on internship.com sent in my resume with a cover letter, and a supplemental questionnaire with two applications that I love and two that I hate. I was then contacted via email within a week or two to schedule a phone interview. The HR woman asked me availability and interest and double checked the resume and such was correct. She scheduled me to speak with the woman who would be my boss. She did a primary interview on the phone- going over my experience with databases, education, and the questionnaire on the applications I love and hate. She asked questions like why I would be good for the company, and what I wanted to do career wise. She then said she'd call me to schedule me to come in. I went in the next day or day after (some very short time period). I felt a little ridiculous because I was in formal business wear and they were all in jeans or cargos. I met with my soon to be supervisor. She asked me a few more standard interview questions. I was passed along to her boss (VP Lou) and he asked me more questions about career goals, experience, what applications I've worked with in the past, questions about general knowledge of the political world, and some friendly getting to know you questions. He asked me a silly question about if I could have a super power what would it be? Then I was taken on a tour of the office. I met everyone from Sales to Client Services and Product. Everyone was very friendly and I felt like I was being introduced because I would be hired. A few days later- a full work week max- I was sent my offer letter.
Interview Question – If you were a super hero what would your super power be? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I was just happy for a paid internship.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at NGP VAN in October 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview with programming problem followed by in-person interview with multiple people, one after the next, whiteboard programming challenges in SQL and code.
Interview Question – Some complex SQL join stuff, not too complicated overall, but tough under pressure, on a whiteboard, without any way to test it. Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at NGP VAN in May 2010.
Interview Details –
Not a very present experience. Emailed back and forth for 2 weeks to setup the time for phone interview because of delayed responses. The interviewer didn't introduce the company or describe the job functions, then jumped right in a very straight questions, such as how do you think of the company and so something like that.
For phone interview, just search online for what questions might ask in the interview. Very basic questions but better find a quiet and comfort room to write down the questions before answering.
Climate is laid back.
Challenging/ever changing work- with good prospects in what's to come.
Easy product to get behind and work hard for.
Beer delivery on Fridays.
In certain departments, its normal to start your day at 10 pm.
