    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Apply through the Math Department, get interviewed by a professor, and then determine your work schedule. It was a pretty smooth process, and I actually enjoyed talking to the professors and figuring out what classes I wanted to grade for. I appreciate the Math Department for taking the time to make sure that the graders are interested in what they are grading for.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harvey Mudd College (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I met the company at a job fair and gave them my resume on a whim. Within two weeks I was contacted for an interview.

    The interview was a group interview, where me and 5 other applicants were placed in a room with 3 engineers. The first part consisted of a series of exercises designed to test our critical thinking skills, such as riddles and very basic design tests. It was actually really enjoyable, and the senior engineers seemed very approachable and nice.

    The second phase consisted of the applicants asking questions about the company, followed by a tour of the company.

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    It's pretty easy to get hired as a CS70 grutor, because they need a lot of them. You have to fill out an application. I joined a week late, and didn't have an interview. I emailed the professor I had for the class and asked if I could be a grutor.
