I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dresser-Rand (Ellicottville, NY) in November 2016.
University career fair initial floor interview because they overbooked the university on-site interview for the next couple of days, followed by phone interview with HR about 2 weeks after (scheduled), then invited to a 2 days interview with few other selected candidates.
The experience was great because they were not shy to invite the CEO, and all managers, directors at the top positions, from all over the world, to interview about 15 of us. The process was rigorous with demanded interactions between candidates and with the EMAP graduates. They have come up with a great EMAP program.
