    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke to NI at my schools career fair. The recruiters were very nice and informative about the program. A day or two later I was scheduled for an on-ground interview. The interview was behavioral with a technical component. It was fairly easy/fun. I was then flown out to the Austin, TX campus for a final round interview. The interview was easy but some of the employees seemed unprepared for the interview. They paid for a weekend out which was great too.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview

    2 interviews, one behavioral and one technical. Questions were straight forward but seemed to have one optimal solution. You are able to answer the questions then if you get caught on something the interviewer moves on and assists you. Not scary at all.

    Interview

    The interview was split into two parts, behavioral and technical. The behavioral questions were standard ones. The technical ones were easy as long as you brush up on the material before hand.

    Interview

    It was a Behavioral and technical interview. The interview lasted roughly 30 minutes. I enjoyed the interview process. The employees are very relate-able. It was my first technical interview and they understood. He made it clear they were trying to determine how each candidate thinks so being a external processor helps.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter at the career fair and was called back for an interview the following day. This interview was fairly straight-forward and interviewer was very nice. Questions included: describe a time you went above and beyond, talk through an algorithm designed to find the missing number in an unordered list from 0-99. I was told a couple weeks later that I was selected for an on-site interview. I then flew out to an on-site interview at NI in Austin. The day consisted of two interviews from different departments, a behavioral interview, and a technical interview. I was in a group with 5 other candidates applying for the Engineering Leadership Program (ELP). Candidates are also asked to give a 10 minute technical powerpoint presentation on a recent project that is prepared ahead of time. About two weeks after the on-site interview I was told I was not selected for the position.
