    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Jacobs.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview through a career fair. I was looking to intern as a civil engineer (structures). It was a pretty standard interview asking about my previous work experience, my strengths and weaknesses, why I wanted to work for them, etc. There was one question that was interesting (below), at the end he said it was to see if I could think quickly through an unexpected situation.

    Software Engineer Level IV Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Nashua, NH
    Anonymous Employee in Nashua, NH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Jacobs in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact was with an engineer. Basic questions were asked such as come up with a solution for the fibonacci sequence.

    The next stage entailed interviewing with four different engineers. Most of them asked about my research and background. Nothing too technical was asked. Their focus was on C# which I had not developed in as well as an Agile development environment which was also new to me.

    The final stage of my process involved interviewing with two engineers. Their focus was purely on the OO side of things with some basic C++ code with issues that you needed to find.

    The atmosphere felt very stuffy, but that is the norm in the Defense industry. I didn't get the feeling that it would have a great corporate culture, but that wouldn't have deterred me. everyone was polite, smart and professional.

    • How would you architect the game of monopoly in an OO manner?   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Interview was relatively short due to University Policy on interviews on campus. Was very informal and laid back, I did not expect this for a huge international firm.

    Interview Questions
    • No hard questions, I assume they would have been asked at the second interview.   Answer Question
