    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Varian Medical Systems (Palo Alto, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. The whole process took 2 weeks. I had 1 phone screening and a few days later 2 phone interviews with the managers.
    The interview was very technical and difficult. I felt like i had an oral exam! A week later, I was called to attend meeting with the members of the team and was announced acceptance on the same day. After that, they give their formal letter within a few days, including generous offer and medical coverage for intern. After I accepted the offer, I began my background check and drug test.
