    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Company (Athens, GA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First we met on campus and they got a bunch of resumes. Then, they reached out to us for an information session (pre-interview session) and the interview was the next day. The interview was around 30 minutes and they did not ask any technical questions.
