    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cessna.

    Interview

    Online application and phone interview. I interviewed with one person over the phone and he was quite nice. He didn't try to trap me with the types of questions they ask. It was more a pleasant conversation than anything else. I found out though that if you waited a bit to accept the offers they're more likely to get in contact with a better offer. So wait a bit before you accept!

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly "tell me a time when" kind of personality questions. Things like times where you struggled, or achieved something, or when there was an inter-personal struggle with classmate/coworker/etc.   Answer Question
