    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in DeKalb, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at College Works Painting (DeKalb, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    They will come to your class and hand out slips of paper to get your contact info. Then they will call you and invite you to an informational meeting somewhere on campus. When you go, there will be several other students there but your interviewer will probably ask one/some of them to leave before they are finished which means they don't consider them a good candidate for the job. Then, if you are picked, you get to do another phone interview with the same interview. If you are picked after that, you get to do a reverse interview with an executive (higher level) member of the company. It can seem scam-ish, but from the research I've done, you can be successful and make some money and also get some good experience if you're willing to work hard and put effort and time into it.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at College Works Painting (East Lansing, MI) in November 2017.

    Interview

    College senior came to one of my classes and handed everyone slips to fill out. Apparently my answers were good, because a month later I got a call asking to schedule an informational meeting that was also a casual interview. There was another guy with me at that meeting/interview, and the interviewer talked to us very casually but very informatively. After that I was assigned to come up with a few questions and answers before my next call with that same interviewer. That went well, so then I was scheduled a reverse interview with another person in the company. That also went well, and again I had to prepare certain answers and call some of the program's alumni before my next interview, which was over the phone. After being sent through that round, I was scheduled a final interview with one of the Vice Presidents of the area. That was the last thing before being offered the position, which I accepted.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at College Works Painting (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    There were multiple people at UW-Madison with me for this interview. The interview was fairly easy, but the other people took it far more seriously than I did. I didn't even get an offer ha, but after doing more research on the company, I found out this internship is a pyramid scheme/scam. Do some research on this company. Their business relies on suckering college students into thinking this will help them start their career/gain experience. Don't intern for them, and don't bother interviewing with them unless you want to be an hourly painter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at College Works Painting (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Three interviews. First one was a phone interview, then a webcam interview, and then an in person interview. Overall, the interview was pretty easy. Pretty basic questions. The overall experience of the internship was a lot of work... Don't expect to breeze through this internship. I learned a lot from the internship, but I was getting up at 5 am and working until 5 pm. Half the interns you see at the beginning training don't make it out in the end.

    Interview and hiring process was easy due to my roommate and I already being in the company the previous year. The experience was justified with a short quiz to make sure the safety knowledge is imbedded into our minds at all times.

    Had a group interview, which at the end I was asked to follow up with a one on one interview at their Columbus office. The group interview only lasted 20 minutes, the one on one interview lasted about 45 minutes. At the end of the one on one, I was offered to continue with the next steps in the process, but declined as I had decided I did not wish to proceed with the process.
