    Interview

    Applied online through OSSI SOLAR, the website that NASA uses for all internship and fellow applications. Then had a short phone interview from the project mentor who was screening candidates and seeing if they would be able to work effectively in a team. I received a phone call a few weeks later with the internship offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

    Interview

    There was no interview process outside of applying online. This was astonishing because being a cultural fit and being able to effectively talk to people cannot be judged solely on an online application. I would like to see an effort to try to filter out some of the ineffective government employees, starting with an interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

    Interview

    Every potential hire will need to fill out an application through the OSSI website portal. The interview process will primarily depend on which organization or location chooses to hire you, but typically interviews are initially conducted over the phone. Most of the time, especially in regards to internship, there is not official interview process, you are either chosen for the opportunity and can simply accept or decline. If you accept then you will likely be working with people closely at which ever center you are located, and during the end of your term and exit-interview will be done.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (Huntsville, AL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    There was a panel that i met with. It was in a dimly lit room and the panel was very professional. They did not attempt to intimidate me or anything. I always raise the chair in the room, as many interviewers try to place the chair on the lowest setting to throw you off. This brings you eye to eye with your interviewer. It was a pleasant experience.

Then I asked a few questions about the internship and the project. Finally she asked me a couple interview question. Neither of the questions where very difficult or unexpected.
