    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Riverside, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bourns (Riverside, CA) in May 2015.


    Applied through email for an engineering internship position. They do not have an actual internship program yet so the process was a little longer than expected but everybody I spoke to throughout the process was extremely nice and helpful. After a few weeks I had a phone interview. A few weeks after that I had an in person interview where I was asked basic questions about why I would want to work here. A few weeks after that, I was called with the news that i was going to be hired.
