    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    very good interview experience. They have other people in your potential team interview you normally. The interview lasted a while - with different groups of people interviewing and using pre-determined questions. which is good - because they are not recruiters, but possible co-workers.

    Anonymous Employee in Kalamazoo, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Steelcase in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Steelcase posted a job on WMU's job network. After a quick search it would appear Steelcase has been advertising this job to multiple colleges and accepting resumes. I applied and was scheduled to complete an on campus interview. The interview was two individuals. Laura and another guy. The interview process was low pressure and only 30 minutes in length. General behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Despite applying for a particular job, the interview left me under the impression that it was for multiple jobs I was applying for. This made it more difficult for me to ask good questions in return I felt as I just didn't know exactly what I was really applying for. General behavioral questions tho. How do you respond under pressure? Explain an incident where the ball was dropped and how you handled it? Give us an example that shows I am capable of dealing with dynamic problems.   Answer Question
