    Pros

    Very supportive supervisors and managers, good pay for an internship, opportunity to stay as an intern for a year after graduating, and a great learning environment. This is not a coffee runner position- you will learn a lot! They also have great employee wellness programs and activities that even the interns get to take advantage of.

    Cons

    I really can't think of many cons but it does seem that there is a little disconnect and division between some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Orange County Transportation Authority (Orange, CA).

    Interview

    I was first contacted by someone who set me up for an interview. I met with two people who were very nice and thoroughly explained the interview process. One interviewer reviewed my resume and application and verified information and asked me a few questions about my previous jobs. They then took turns asking me situational type questions. There were probably about 7-8 of those questions and then we finished with my own questions. I was offered the position about a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you were faced with an ethical dilemma and how did you handle it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation for interns but they pay well- $13/hour if you're pursuing a bachelors and $16/hour if you're pursuing your masters.
