    I applied online through university recruiting. Once I applied, I heard back within two weeks. The first interview was on campus (at Wichita State). This interview was short (around 30 minutes). In this interview, I was asked about my interest in Koch, knowledge of market based management, and general interview questions. After this interview, I again heard back within two weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Koch Industries (Wichita, KS) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Brief telephone interview, followed by an interview in person in their office. Interviewed with the various managers within the business entity I was interviewing for. Some of the interviewers were interested in being there, whereas others just read questions off of a sheet. Overall, good experience as long as you are prepared. If you read any of the books by Charles Koch it will help and give you something to talk about.
