Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer
Clifton, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate the offer I simply chose my start date. Offer was very competitive and the benefits package was one of the best in the industry.
