Systems Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Atomics (San Diego, CA) in June 2013.

Interview

HR dragging the process forward, misinformation provided by recruiter, honesty not their best policy. HR arrived late for interview kick off, entire schedule push due to time constraints, others not responsive or interested in hiring anyone, overall very unprofessional group of people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Atomics (San Diego, CA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 5 people, 1 senior engineer, 3 in management roles, and 1 HR representative. Spent about a half hour with each person. 1 supervisor forgot he had an interview and I sat there for 20 extra minutes with the senior engineer discussing other topics totally unrelated to the role.
