Information Technology Intern Interview

Information Technology Intern
Columbus, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Panasonic in October 2013.

Interview Details – I did an on campus interview that was set up by my school. I interviewed with two men who were very easy to talk to and asked the typical interview questions: Tell me about yourself, good qualities, bad qualities, time management, challenging time, etc. I was called 7 hours after my interview with an offer, no follow up interview required.

Interview Question – I interviewed for a Software Engineering internship and just as the interview was wrapping up, one of the guys threw down a blank sheet of paper and a pencil, described a program to me, and asked me to write the code for it. So they definitely want to test not only your capability at the job, but the way you react to unexpected situations and your ability to think on your feet.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There were absolutely no negotiations. At the beginning of the interview I was told that people in my position get a flat $15/h, "it doesn't go up, it doesn't go down. That's just the way we do things."

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Panasonic in April 2009.

Interview Details – My immediate supervisor submitted my résumé to HR before my internship ended my last semester in college. I went through 2 rounds of interview. I was applying for a higher level position but when they made the offer they downgraded it due to my lack of experience.

Senior Front End Developer Interview

Senior Front End Developer
Atlanta, GA

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Panasonic in June 2012.

Interview Details – I was being recruited by Double Down Interactive in Seattle. Panasonic Intervened and said they would not offer 125k annual unless I made the decision before considering Double Down. So I went. I was supposed to get a bike for work, but instead the boss gave me a rickety bike and I ended up a few days later with a broken arm. He said "Panasonic is out of the loop." I had to pay for the surgery and was eventually evicted.

Interview Question – Interview went fine. A little smart remark such as "Okay so you're smart, what about..."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was $65/hr

Intern Interview

Intern

Interviewed at Panasonic

Interview Details – I was selected from our college's career fair for an interview. It was on-site at their facility which is near our campus. The interview was for a firmware design position. I have a mainly hard-ware design background, so really could not answer the software questions. Then they shifted on to hardware design.

Interview Question – What would you have done if not engineering ?   View Answer

Supply Planner Interview

Supply Planner
Secaucus, NJ

The process took a day - interviewed at Panasonic in April 2012.

Interview Details – I was working as an intern for more than one year. So it was an easy process for me to get in. Panasonic usually hires as interns and then basing on work performance and business needs, they offer full-time. However, salaries are not so great at entry level
