    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Solar.

    Interview

    Had a couple preliminary conversations with HR. She was friendly and helpful she forwarded me on to a Director for a phone interviewer. The director asked some pretty generic questions about experience, thoughts on solar, and then described the position at greater length. Then I had a half day interview with 6 or 7 people in 30 minute intervals.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Solar (Tempe, AZ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty laid back actually which definitely describes my experience at First Solar. I applied to First Solar online at my schools career website and I got a email from the manager, and a call to discuss the internship. The manager later called me into the office to have an in person interview, and to be introduced to the team.
