    Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EchoStar in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was well-organized. There were six candidates and we were brought in for breakfast before being split up into two groups - one group had their interviews while the other was given a tour of the facilities. Lunch followed with the team and the groups were switched, after which we were given a small product demonstration, an overview of the benefits offered, before we were let go for the day.

    My interview in itself was based on my resume for the most part, with some C code analysis thrown in.

    I'm still waiting on their decision to be made.
