Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Company (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

Interview

After applying through a recruiter, i was contacted for an on-camous interview. The first Interview took 30 minutes. Two people conducted it. They asked basic behavioral questions and made it clear that Co-ops were far more likely to have a chance at a job offer than Interns. They provided a list of available positions, so I asked to be considered for the department that had the most.

Second interview was on site with a panel of 6 people. I answered more detailed behavioral questions and more questions about my resume. This interview lasted a little longer than 30 minutes.

    I initially got the interview at a career fair where I was asked to interview the next day. In this interview the lady asked me the basic questions (tell me about yourself, what was your hardest challenge in school etc). I then got a call a couple days later asking for a second round interview in Birmingham. In this interview there was a panel of interviewers. Went through the interview but wasn't selected for the job

    Interview

    The process was fairly simple. Online application and phone interview. The interview was just a few behavioral questions with HR person, not bad at all. The best part of the internship is that housing is paid for - which is super great!

    I wasn't able to negotiate anything as an intern. the internship program is a set path, unlike a full time position where you may be able to negotiate salary and benefits.
