    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Maryland.

    Interview

    This interview was very straight forward. It was behavioral and there were multiple people in the interview. 25 minutes long. They asked standard questions. I received the job on the spot. I suggest that if you're looking for an on campus job you should apply within the first two weeks of the start of school. Spots fill up fast

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied by mailing the CATT Lab's person in charge of hiring. Got a mail reply a few months after applying. First round was telephonic and mainly centered around previous projects, communication skills and cultural fit. It was easy. Second round was a make or break test. It was a PHP/Javascript/HTML project which I had to understand and then find and fix all possible bugs. The catch was the time frame - it needed to be done in an hour.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Maryland.

    Interview

    Had two interviews, one via Skype and another via in-person panel. Skype was interview with two people from the office that lasted about 30 minutes. In-person panel consisted of three groups of people that lasted over two hours cumulatively. Process was relatively quick from initial contact for Skype interview to notification of second round of interviewing. All communication ceased after in-person interview, even after a couple of failed attempts to follow up.
