Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
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

Very Easy Interview

Associate All Source Intelligence Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

Interview Details – The initial interview consisted of a phone call. During the interview, the recruiter asked about my experiences in the intelligence community and asked that I expound on particular programs of record. After 15 minutes, the interview was over. A few weeks later, I recieved an email with a job offer. It was very simple which is concerning considering the impact this position has on the customer.

Interview Question – There were none. I was asked to talk about my resume. The salary requirement was fixed, therefore there was no need to discuss that.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Material Planner Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Louisville, KY

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in August 2013.

Interview Details – The standard procedure is to be interviewed by a panel of 3 to 4 people. Questions are typical "give me an example of.." read off a script. The HR department is not a participant and the interviews are largely ceremonial at present. The site manager decides offers based on his personal impressions and bias. The process is flawed and almost unethical.

Interview Question – What single word would the people you work with now use to describe you?   Answer Question

Senior Lead Secure Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at BAE Systems USA in October 2009.

Interview Details – Direct communication from the HR department after posting on a job board for security clearance holders. Phone interview with HR first, then additional phone interview with the hiring manager. Onsite interview with hiring manager and team members. Everything was very professional. Questions weren't particularly hard, but weren't particularly easy, either. Good follow-up by HR and hiring manager.

Interview Question – It was difficult to get a complete view of the position since the work was "need to know." Still, the hiring manager did a good job in conveying that the work was very interesting (it is) and makes a contribution to the safety and security of the nation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Coming from government, the first offer was a bit of sticker shock. I did a poor job in negotiating higher as the offer was 50% more than I was making with my GS salary.
