    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dynetics in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruited through University. First interview was at the University, pretty basic stuff. Asked me a few questions about coding to make sure I was competent, but mostly they wanted to know where my interests lie. Second interview was on-site in Huntsville. Met with HR and talked about benefits, then interviewed with about 6 people from the department. Hardly any technical questions were asked; I told them I was surprised they did not ask more. The response was that they felt my resume spoke for my competency, they just wanted to know if I would fit in with the team and was interested in the work they were doing. All in all, one of the easiest interviews I've had.

    Interview Questions
    • Several people asked if I was interested in continuing education. It seemed like they really wanted me to go to grad school while I was there.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    As a Co-op, I worked in a classified environment and found it to be very annoying, to the point where it impacted my happiness and productivity. The thought of working in such and environment full time was not appealing to me.

    Engineer III Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Dynetics.

    Interview Details

    Dynetics does a good job of fitting an applicant into a group that matches their skills interests and qualifications. When I interviewed I had a series of meetings with managers from half a dozen different departments or projects. If you get to that point in the process they are pretty sure that you are talented and capable and are more concerned with fit and culture. Overall the interviews are low stress and non-technical because they have already screened out lackluster applicants through educational screening, inadequate recommendations, and poor performance.

    Interview Questions
    • One interviewer asked me some implementation questions about inheritance and polymorphism in various languages. After several interviews with no technical questions this was a surprise.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I made a counteroffer and they split the difference which was agreeable to me.

    Engineer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Dynetics in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was initially told to apply via there website for an internship by one of their managers in their newly formed space/ friction stir welding group. The interview process took place over the phone and was a pretty standard interview covering my education and research background. No unexpected questions were asked but they did specifically ask me my plans once i graduated, and were basically implying that they only try to target interns who are interested in working for them once they graduate.

    Upon completion of the internship every intern has to give a presentation on their accomplishments/work performed during their internship. These presentations are attended by employees in your department as well as the CEO and higher management positions, and you can expect questions related to your presentation (I specifically fielded questions from the head of R&D and the president of the company). The leadership of this company is very accessible at any time and take a genuine interest in the interns and employees.

    Interview Questions
    • Specific questions related to the work we would be doing so they could confirm my claimed research experience that was listed on my resume. Expect technical type questions related to your job/field of work.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The offer was sufficient enough in my opinion for my level of education and background so i did not try to negotiate the $$. They do not hire a lot of interns, for example 400+ applied and we had 13 total interns during my term there (the company is very selective). The offers they give out are fair and comparable or higher to other intern positions within engineering.

    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntsville, AL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dynetics.

    Interview Details

    I had a preliminary interview with HR which was very standard, no technical questions. Afterward, I was invited to the campus to participate in several interviews. Technical questions were limited to my background and my experience, though I now know of one non-management interviewer who asks specific programming/software engineering questions who did not interview me. I interviewed at several levels of management up to the division manager. One discussion ended up with a manager discussing with me some issues in the field, preseumably to hear the sorts of things I had to say and how my background could aid in resolving such issues, but it was well disguised as a simple conversation. Very friendly interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all standard personality/background questions, but be prepared to discuss things you may not know about. Ask questions and route the discussion toward how your knowledge may relate if possible. And be sure to follow-up after the interview.   Answer Question
