    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Spirent Communications in March 2014.

    Interview

    Met at career fair in November, applied for summer internship in late February. Short phone interview to confirm I was a real person and interested in the job, and then on site interview was arranged. The Interview was all behavioral, no technical questions despite them being interested in my technical coding skills. Easy interview, my resume spoke for itself, and no tough questions were asked at all.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, they pay their interns a standard rate. I actually got more than I had said I was looking for originally.
