I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tellabs in May 2010.

Interview Details – I got the phone interview from the HR and was asked the availability. Then, a senior engineer gave me a phone screen. Because it is an intern position, the engineer just asked my background knowledge and skills and determined to give me an offer.
