    MECOP Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Mentor Graphics (Corvallis, OR) in January 2015.

    Interview

    This position directly came from the collaboration of the MECOP program at Oregon State University and several technical companies within Oregon and Southern Washington - the interview took place at the Winter 2015 Selection Event at OSU as a mass interview with several companies. Unfortunately that means that this position is unlikely to be available to someone on glassdoor, but I've heard from colleagues that their later interview processes are similar.
