    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Detroit Diesel in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my school's website. A few weeks later I got an email to sign up for a time slot for a 20 min phone interview. After the interview I got an offer via email two days later. The screening process after you accept is time sensitive, and I started about a month after.
