    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter on a college career fair and she seemed very interested. Later that day I got a call from the recruiter and she asked me if I have time to interview the following day. The interview itself was conducted by two recruiters. One of them asked all the questions and the other just took notes. Even though the interview went very well and I solved all the technical questions, I did not get an offer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview

    On campus interview. Interview was short, about 35 minutes. Had a bit of small talk, a technical question, and then I answered some questions about what team I would like to work with if I got an offer. Interviewer was incorrect about the space complexity of the algorithm so I felt like we hit a snag when I corrected them.
