    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clifton, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Exelis in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume at my college's career fair and was contacted within a couple weeks that myself along with 30 other candidates were selected. A career day was scheduled at their facility which consisted of a half day of touring the company and the other half on a series of 4 interviews. The interviews were not highly technical and very laid back. They basically wanted to know about my previous experience and educational accomplishments.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Exelis in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Panel interview. Finance, HR, Business Strategy, and maybe a few others. Hiring process is SLOW. So be prepared to wait it out. They'll come back with an OK salary at first. Haggle a bit, they have room to play.
