    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at UC Davis (Sacramento, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Very standard. They gave great direction to a hard to find office. Almost by today's standard for all Human Resource Departments. The employer looked at her laptop and filled in the blanks. Very little interest if answers did not apply to the form she was filling out. The process took about 30 minutes to complete. Overall it was professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UC Davis (Davis, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was mostly done through just an evaluation of prior experience, specifically the student's performance in a class required by the major (Senior Design). Past performance on graded projects were evaluated, most likely. Other factors that probably played a role were dedication to the project at hand, past interactions with the employer during group meetings concerning the project, and the overall turnout of the final deliverable.
