I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Harris (Herndon, VA) in September 2015.
Unfair. This is another disorganized company who will ride your jock to get their numbers filled meaning they have jobs filled internally yet need to file paperwork to "prove" they interviewed a certain number of candidates, then they blow you off, that is before the job posting is removed altogether prior to interviewing which is a huge indicator that there was never a job. It's cruel, it's unfair practice and someone needs to do something about these companies. The recruiters lie....they tell you anything to get you in the door to close out their paperwork then there is no courtesy follow-up. RIDICULOUS! Looks like I dodged a huge bullet anyway based on the interview itself, which was a joke. They have no idea what they want due to a recent acquisition and drag innocent people into their mud.I do not appreciate being called into interview which is 3 DAYS OF MY TIME, when there is no genuine opening to begin with. They lead you on to think they are in a hurry to fill a position when reality is - they filled it and need to file the papers quickly.

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Washington, DC) in June 2015.
4 stages of interviews. Stage 1 informal phone interview. Stage 2 formal phone interview. Stage 3 face to face panel interview. Stage 4 face to face with division head. Stage 3 was the most difficult part of the process. It is never easy responding to a panel of very bright people, all wanting to ask questions. For the first 20 minutes, it felt like a CIA interrogation, but thankfully, that wore off. Once I became comfortable in the setting, it went quite well.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in June 2015.
I had applied to several jobs within this company and when I was informed that there was going to be a phone screen I immediately reviewed my applications and beefed up on the company. When the phone call came I was asked What can you tell me about yourself and how do you see yourself fitting in with this company? The recruiter never specified what job I was being screened for so it made it extremely difficult to tailor my answers to the specific job and was forced to speak in generalities, which in the end I believe was my downfall.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in May 2015.
Applied online, and about a month later was contacted for a phone interview, this was very simple, no technical just questions about favorite classes and some behavioral stuff. Was flown out to Melbourne in Florida for the in person interview, which lasted from 8 to 1:30, including lunch. Pretty easy for me, but a lot of questions about past group stuff, and though I was told there would be no technical questions, be prepared for some simple stuff, especially if you claim to know Unix at all. You will fist be given a schedule of whom you will meet with, the first generally being someone to tell you about how the secret clearance thing works. Then you will meet with 6 people from the team that you are interviewing with, again the technical questions were not standard, it appears that some of the engineers will take the initiative to ask you for their own benefit so your don't count on the questions I gave you to be standard or anything.

The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Harris in May 2015.
Phone interview with sales director. Went well then met him in person. He offered me the job right there but said I should also need to talk to HR. HR director called me, nice call and it was very pleasant. But she decided she knew more about sales then the director and decided to never call me again or reply or follow up to any emails. Very unprofessional to offer someone a job then never follow up again.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in April 2015.
I was referred by an employee so I had a short phone screen after which they invited me for an onsite interview in Melbourne, FL. As is standard they covered all expenses for the trip (reimbursement came in a reasonable amount of time too). The interview process was not at all technical, it instead dealt almost exclusively with background and experiences. They seem much more concerned about having someone that will be able to fit in and work there than raw technical ability.

The interview were more like desperate attempts to get you to come there. No technical questions. A lot of casual talk but really nothing challenging. Nice for a first interview because it is so easy. Also, it is a free trip to the beach.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in February 2015.
Final round interview was an all day interview with various (~9) members of the department. Prior to that was a 1:1 at university career fair. Some technical questions, lots of behavioral questions, and discussion of what sort of work they do. Very thorough tour of the facilities. Very professional process and all of the employees were great to talk to.
