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

    Interview

    In campus interview, I did not get called for a second round interview because they had only 10 intern spots for the whole country, hence it was very competitive. Code the answers in java or c# since their application developers don't seem to understand or like pointers that well.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    An on-site interview that lasted all day. They set you up in a nice hotel and treat you very well. I came away with a strong sense of what it would be like to work there. The behavioral questions were pretty basic. The technical interview was detailed and difficult, but fair. They help you through portions if you're struggling so that you can get through to the end. There was also a presentation portion so they can get a feel for your public speaking abilities.
