The interview process wasn't too bad at all. For the data center position, I had one phone call with the manager and one on-site with two members of the data center team. Just be prepared to talk about your technical experience. They did ask me a few questions about Linux commands during the interview as well.

Your experience (previous work, projects etc) in the field should be compatible with the team you would like to work. Since the competition has increased tremendously, I would highly recommend you to be practice coding and go to one of resume consulting sessions held in Stony Brook's Library.
First, you should be very good at data structures and algorithms like big O notation should be by heart. This is just the basic. And when any student is interviewed in software domain, it is not the algorithm they look at, they look at the approach how you are actually trying to get a solution for a specific problem. The questions in the interview could be dynamic, they could change the solution, they might ask if there is any other better and optimized way to solve a problem.
