    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Citadel (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Was invited to super day. Alot of 2 on 1 interviews with engineers. You sit in a conference room and they rotate people in and out to interview you. I enjoyed it but I can see how some would not like it at all. ALOT of technical questions. Make sure you brush up. The interview was a very good experience overall. The interviewers were very smart and very nice people.
