    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MSC Software.

    Interview

    They called me after reviewing my resume. Invited me in and asked me questions about my resume and coursework. Lots of friendly people and smiling people so I think they wanted to make sure that who they hire was a good fit. There was a wide range of ages in the office space but seemed like there were many in their 40s or 50s.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Since this was an internship position, they just told you what the wage would be. I don't think it would be appropriate to try to negotiate on the number.
