I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Thales.
Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of application via the internet. The application specified degree type and course average cut off.
An HR person called me and after a chat I was invited to an assessment centre.
The assessment centre was a day long event with about 15 other applicants. It consisted of several group tasks during which we solved general engineering problems.
We then did a short presentation which led into a behavioural interview with an HR person and an Engineering Manager.
I received a call a week later to come into the office for a second interview. Which was a technical interview with the same Engineering Manager from the first interview, my future team leader, the head of software within the program I was applying for (who my team leader reports to) and a senior software engineer.
A few weeks later I was called and given a job offer.
