The process took a day - interviewed at Argon ST in April 2010.
Interview Details –
Submitted my resume online via the careers section of their website. Received a call from HR to setup a telephone interview. Took some time to receive the confirmation but I spoke with a software engineer who realized I'd be a much better fit in another role. I was passed on to a 2nd phone interviewer with whom I had a lengthy conversation, mostly technical questions related to signal processing basics.
I then received a call a few days later informing me that they'd like to interview me in person. The day of the interview I ended up interviewing with two separate groups, the unexpected interview sessions led to a job offer. I was thankful that the timing worked out with being able to interview with the 2nd group since I felt it was a perfect fit for my goals.

The process took a day - interviewed at Argon ST in March 2010.
Interview Details – I applied via the Argon ST website and was contacted within a few days to set up a phone interview with an engineer in my prospective group. The phone interview simply consisted of discussions of my past experience and I was given the opportunity to ask questions. After a few weeks I was invited to Fairfax for an onsite interview. This consisted of interviews with 2 engineers, a group lead, lunch with another engineer and an interview with a recruiter. The interviews were all very informal, mostly discussion based about the company's ongoing projects and my project experience. A few behavioral questions were asked. In the end, I was told that the position I had interviewed to fill had been eliminated.
Interview Question – Describe a time when you used a logical approach to solving a problem. What was the outcome? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Argon ST in March 2009.
Interview Details – Contacted them in response to ad on Monster.com. They called back almost immediately, expressing interest, and setting up a telephone interview. The telephone interview went well - they then asked me in for a face to face. They said they were looking for someone with experience in a particular area, which I did not have, and said so. No matter, they said, there are many other things we may need. Then when I went in, they concentrated on the area that we had established during the phone interview that was not an area of expertise. I did not get the offer, and it was largely a waste of time. I think their internal communications regarding me were poor.
