    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Sterling Heights, MI (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview for the technical writer internship. They asked me one question- What do I want to do when I am done with my undergraduate degree- and that was the last time I talked during the entire conversation. They seemed friendly, but it is concerning that those I would be working with and for did not seem too interested in what I had to say or questions I had.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Milpitas, CA (US)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I knew two of the four interviewers. We discussed where our old offices were in relation to each other at Micron. One interviewer asked if I was fast (their current Tech Writer was slow -- I gather). I told him I was fast enough at Lam, LensVector, Nextest, Micron, LSI Logic and Synopsis. He just laughed.
