    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at NASA in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in early in May 2015 and didn't receive a response until August. The interviewers were very kind, trying their hardest to make you feel comfortable. I had no previous engineering experience from co ops or internships, but I had a 4.0 gpa with lots of leadership experience leading my university's engineers without borders chapter. Even without experience, it was one of the easiest interviews I've had. If you want a NASA internship, focus on GPA, teamwork experience, and leadership experience

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NASA (Greenbelt, MD).

    Interview

    Interview panel, multiple structured questions. Behavior based interviewing process. Cool and calm atmosphere. Pleasant panelists. Thoughtful questions. The interviewers were obviously hand selected from related fields in the same or similar departments. It was great to see that they had prepared the process in advance and had a rigid agenda for the questions, which they rotated between individuals on the team. It was not a high pressure boiler room environment, yet the questions were very complete and thoughtful, including questions regarding both the technical matter at hand for the job as well as diversity in the workplace. I found this unique and indicative of a non-judgmental environment. But, you know how it is when you are interviewing (from either side of the table) - you never, ever know. My instincts told me that these people would probably be great to work with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NASA.

    Interview

    Letters of recommendation, transcripts, several essays and short-answer questions--afterwards selected for a phone interview. Interview lasted about 30 minutes, and it was super casual--more like a conversation then question/answer question/answer, I think they're trying tell how well they would be able to work with you, because they already know your technical qualification from your resume.
