Systems Administration Tech Interview

Systems Administration Tech
Columbia, SC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in January 2013.

Interview Details – Easy process, applied, was interviewed within a few days. Timely response time, recieved second interview within a week. One week later recieved offer. Great company to work for employees are mostly former military veterans, great attitudes, very professional. Coming out of the military I didnt really know what to expect from the civilian workforce but they made the process pretty easy.

Operations Research Analyst Interview

Operations Research Analyst
Vestal, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied by on campus recruiting, single interview with two recruiters. Total time approximately 30 minutes. Interviewers were new at the company and so

Recruiters were friendly and seemed to be impressed by my answers to questions regarding creativity and leadership, and so it was unexpected when they did not respond post-interview to emails regarding the recruitment process. While they displayed friendly and courteous attitudes in person, I felt it was unprofessional that they did not respond.

I found it frustrating that I never received so much as a canned email thanking me for applying, let alone a response from the recruiters or HR to let me know whether or not I would receive another interview.

Interview Question – A production system can process one unit every ten minutes. Eleven units arrive per hour. Do you think this is a good system? If not, how would you improve it?   View Answer

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

Interview Details – This was over 6 years ago, so I'm sure the process has changed significantly. It took three months for them to call me after I submitted a resume. Keep in mind this is with the recommendation of an employee who already worked their. Plus, my experience was completely different from others. I had to three supervisors interview at the same time. The questions were somewhat technical. If you put soldering on your resume be prepared to walk them through your previous experience.

Interview Question – The interview and the interviewer can vary greatly. You can get interviewed by someone very experienced or an inexperienced lead who literally will ask you "do you know how to use a screwdriver?"   Answer Question
