I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Continental (Chicago, IL) in February 2020.

Interview

I met some of the recruiters at the career fair, where they right away asked me technical questions. The following day, I received an email to set up a phone interview for the following week.
They seem very passionate about their careers and organized. They asked mostly technical questions regarding embedded systems and past projects. Be sure to know basic C programming concepts and several microcontroller peripherals.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Continental in March 2018.

    Interview

    Got a phone call out of the blue a month after applying saying they would like to set up an interview next week. Set up a video interview with one of the engineers through H.R. It was a very casual interview with most of the questions being about my experience level. By the end of that week they told me that i had got the internship. The following month and a half was going back and forth with H.R. to do a drug test and fill out forms.
