    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Vanguard.

    Interview Details

    I contacted them at a job fair and the next day I had an interview on campus. It was basic behavioural interview questions and a little bit about your computing background such as what languages you know.

    After a few weeks, I was invited to do on-site interviews. They pay for travel and other expenses if you need it. On the day of the interviews, they put you in a group of other graduates and you get to meet some of the people that work there. They describe their experiences and what it's like to work with the company as well as benefits you receive by being hired. There were two one-hour interviews that were mostly behavioural but it all depends on who is interviewing you. They provided you breakfast and dinner the day of, and were very friendly and nice the entire time.

    Reasons for Declining

    They are a software company. If you enjoy software, then this is a really good place to work for. However, I was looking for a more hardware-oriented position.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Vanguard in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I attended a Career fair at campus. I talked with the recruiter for more than an hour and she suggested for me to apply and email her for a referral. I had a phone interview and they invited me to HQ. At HQ they had several information sessions, a tour, and 2 1-hour long interviews. They fed us and then sent us home. They paid for the entire trip.
