Not sure of specifics, but overall for phone interviews: definitely make sure you have some water nearby in case your mouth gets dry. You will be a bit nervous, but take a deep breath, and don't speak too quickly or anything. Sound confident, smile at times (sounds weird but people can sort of pick up on if you are smiling/relaxed, even over the phone) and if you have a sense of humour, it always helps if you can make them laugh, they will remember you better.
Overall just try to feel secure in your abilities and enjoy showing off what you can do.
Best of luck, and hopefully others in here will have some more specific advice for that scenario

Thanks for the advice, i will be sure to focus on those topics that they mentioned.
This is because we might be using Google Docs to carry out some coding exercises.
the email says they might but I would say relax. They might not ask you to do it
Usually for interns they wont ask for complex programming but will look for analytic and problem solving skills.
They will look for the approach you take to solve a problem (Some don't even want to know if you solve it or not).
Try concentrating on these mentioned.
*Any system administration experience (incl knowledge level of all operating systems) * Communication * Logic, analysis & creative problem solving.

Depends: old or new ping-pong balls, what type of school bus and is it empty (no seats or gear).
One of the questions I recall him mentioning was If you had a school bus full of ping pong balls, what method would you use to best estimate how many there are?

My brother-in-law interviewed to manage one of their data warehouses but didn't want to relocate. The interview was anything but standard. One of the questions I recall him mentioning was If you had a school bus full of ping pong balls, what method would you use to best estimate how many there are?
