    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Exelis (Clifton, NJ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very basic. I was asked about my coursework, interests, and previous internship experience. There were very few behavioral questions and I don't think I was in the room for more than a half hour. I was speaking with two engineers that I eventually ended up working with.

    Interview

    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.
