Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems in March 2010.
Interview Details – One phone interview, one face-to-face interview. The phone interview last 15 minutes and basically involved me regurgitating what was on my resume. The face-to-face interview involved technical questions related to the position I was interviewing for, and lasted for 1.5 hours. I met with 3 individuals; a hiring manager, a senior level engineer, and a human resources representative.
Interview Question – Explain the most challenging project I ever worked on and how I contributed to its success. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase. The offer was the offer, take it or leave it.
Very Easy Interview
Engineering Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems in January 2009.
Interview Details – After the referral, I was called in for an interview within the week. Had a 1:1 interview with the section manager, then a 1:1 interview with a tech lead. Both asked standard interview questions, and there were no technical questions asked at all (besides things like "do you know about xxxx?"). The interviews took about 1.5 hours. I heard from my referrer that both people were impressed with me, and asked HR to start the hiring process. This is where things went sour: HR dragged their feet for 2.5 months, coming up with many different lame excuses, such as not being able to verify a job I had even though I provided a name and contact number. I'm not sure why they were doing this, but it was definitely beyond frustrating. Finally an upper manager got involved, and within a week I was given the job.
