    Interview

    I applied through my university's online career system. I was invited to a dinner with the company the night before my interview, and had some good conversations with their engineers and listened to a presentation about their history and culture. I really like how they assigned seating at the dinner so the engineers were fairly spread out and all of the interviewees had an engineer to talk to. The interview wasn't particularly difficult. They asked me questions based on their values. (Ex. One of their values is take action and act with a sense of urgency, so they asked me about a time that I did that.) The one thing I found a bit frustrating is that they took over a month to get back to me and tell me that I didn't receive an offer.
