    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Steelcase in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Someone wanted to hire on an intern with capability in general development and 3D graphics. I was referred through a friend, who was hired on after our professor was emailed about potential candidates for the position.

    I only had one interview with general questions, showing I had general competence in communication and programming, as well as prior work experience.

    I don't know what the normal application process is, mine was a special case, as it was through an employee referral for a specific job.
