    Average Interview

    Interview

    I got in contact with the HR department regarding an internship position. They scheduled an in-person interview that took place on site. There was an initial behavioral interview, led by two employees, and was about general questions such as programming/education background, motives, and what I expected to gain from this opportunity. Next were two short technical interviews, and finally a general discussion led by a manager, about what to expect, assuming I get this position.

    Interview Questions

    • I was presented with an open-ended scenario about collision detection, and how to approach such an issue. I discussed different factors, variables, and calculations that had to be calculated and updated in real time.   Answer Question
