    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SAS Institute.

    Interview

    I had two interviews and was being set up for a third when the department manager called me and told me that their division had been overstaffed, but he told me to reapply the next round of hiring. Mostly certainly the best job interview process I have experienced. I plan on reapplying this Fall.

    It was a long process and it required several steps, including phone, one-one, group interview and a presentation to a group. Questions were not hard, people were nice and friendly. It did take a long time to hear back on a decision
    The overall experience was positive. The campus was impressive.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SAS Institute (Raleigh, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was brought in for a live interview after a phone interview. In a room with the manager and two colleagues. Nothing out the ordinary. I thought it was odd that the manager has asked me present an analysis and forgot that he asked me that. The whole process was very haphazard.

    Interview

    Met with three practice area leaders - the hiring manager, the division leader, and a would-be peer - who asked insightful and engaging questions. I felt as though they had really considered my resume and qualifications ahead of time and hadn't just skimmed them on the way into the room.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at SAS Institute.

    Interview

    Had applied the 2nd day after the applications for internships opened. I suppose that was major reason why I received a call. From 1600 applicants, 132 were selected. Was lucky to be one. Got a call in last week of feb, the subsequent week, I got first interview set and it went well. 2nd happened the next week and got a final call the next week. In all it took 3 weeks and seemed pretty fast! huh!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SAS Institute (Cary, NC).

    Interview

    When a Sr member of the team tells you how miserable they are, it makes you question your decision to join.
    Then when you are scheduled to meet with your potential client group and they arrive significantly late for their interview with no apology or explanation, it does not make you feel any better about why you would want to work there
