    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Spoke with recruiters at university career fair and earned an interview the next morning on campus. Initial interview was about half an hour long and consisted of half behavioral questions and half technical questions. About a month later, they reached out to set up an on-site interview. They paid for travel, the hotel stay, and gave a per diem. The interview process started early in the morning with breakfast and a quick tour. There were three interviews with engineers from different departments, consisting of mostly technical questions, and a follow up interview with someone from HR.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Instruments (Lubbock, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process involved me interviewing at my school. They asked some technical questions.The annoying part was they initially declined to offer me an internship. They called me several weeks later to offer me the internship, then two weeks after that, they rescinded the offer. This was not an enjoyable experience for me. Luckily, no one called me in the mean time with another internship offer.
