    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Talked to 3 current employees after submitting my resume via email. Talked about my past, what I wanted to do in the future, and something about me that stands out from others. They asked basic IT questions, that were not difficult. I had an easy time with this interview. If I were preparing for the interview process again, I would brush up on common problems that exist in a typical office environment running windows 7 and red hat linux.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Called in and met with head of plasma group. She told me about current missions and that most of the current hiring is data analysis. I said I was more interested in engineering but 2 weeks later I was contacted by my current boss for a data analysis position. Still worth it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very casual talk about my experience with computer science. Expressed my desire to learn and work hard. Talked about the classes I've taken so far into computer science. I get a feeling that they want Sophomore-Junior level of experience. They do love to hire young undergraduates so that they can mold into the position to be more contributing to the team once they become aware of the company's tasks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics.

    Interview

    I had a 20 minute phone call followed by a casual in person interview with 4 people. The interview was mostly non-technical followed by a few technical questions on the wipe board. About two hours after the interview I received a call to submit references. I was offered the job at the end of the following week.

    The job had flexible hours especially during the school year. Extremely laid back work environment. There were also many other engineering students working there at the time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Went in and had a fairly short interview. The first part was a behavioral one, asking about my resume and past work experience, and the second part was a quick coding interview, with a fairly basic question to ensure I actually could program. Everyone was very friendly and professional, although I was interviewed in front of a panel of five people which was a little stressful.

    Interview

    Sat at a desk with the project manager of the project with the open position, a separate project manager, and another engineer on the project. I had worked there before as a student, but didn't know any of these people and it was a little intimidating.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was a brief meeting with a panel of three engineers. It was an informal event that lasted for about 30 minutes. It was more of a group discussion than an interview. The questions asked were straightforward and mostly aimed at assessing experience and qualifications. There we no technical "gotcha" questions.
    This did not apply to me, but I know that some students are asked to do a working interview (e.g. to model an object, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • All that was asked were inquires about experience and qualifications.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (Boulder, CO) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was interviewed in person and asked about my general programming knowledge. There were a few questions about data structures and languages, but nothing too extensive. Overall, it was more of a casual discussion than an interview. Two of the senior software engineers from LASP conducted the interview, but I never felt intimidated by them -- they were very friendly and welcoming.
