    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Harris.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple process. After I applied I received a call to do a phone interview. The phone interview lasted for about twenty minutes or so and was pretty basic. About a week after that I got another call to do an in person interview which was a whole day affair.

    Only one interview, for which I had to travel to the interview site at my own expense. It was with someone who was the head of the Technical Support teams, and consisted of about 25 people doing phone support for customers world-wide. I was later informed after returning to my home state that I had been selected for the position.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an external recruiter. I had a short phone interview and then was flown in for a full interview. I interviewed with the hiring manager and several members of the Sales Engineering Team. This interview process may have changed since I interviewed with CapRock before it was acquired by Harris.

    Systems Integration/Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Melbourne, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Harris in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I first met with a Harris recruiter from Mechanical Engineering dept at a College Career Fair in early October and had an initial screening interview. Several weeks later, I got a phone call out of the blue asking for a phone interview on the spot. I interviewed with about 4 engineers from the Systems Integration & Test department, for about an hour. It was easy and laid-back, and the guys seemed to like to talk a lot. Asked several questions like your favorite class, talk about senior design projects, why do you want to do systems integration, etc. I got a call a couple weeks later to come in for a site interview on December 17th.
    It was a half-day ordeal, with some miscommunication because there were different schedules between mine and some of the interviewers.It started with a breakdown of the company's benefits. Then spoke with security for 10 mins. Talked with engineering manager for 10 minutes, but he seemed a little scatter-brained and not too interested in spending too much time talking with me.Then a panel of 4 engineers in the department for an hour. They all showed up at different times, but it was easy and laid back. Similar questions to phone interview, and we talked about the area too. Then went to lunch with an engineer, who was nice and gave me a short tour of campus at the end, since the engineering manager wasn't back yet. Talked to HR last. I waited until after the holiday break to hear back. I was surprised to get a no since they went through so much. I didn't apply for a specific job, rather the department, so I'm not sure how they decide how many new grads to hire.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Harris.

    Interview Details

    Interview was somewhat grueling. I only did one interview until I got the position. During the interview, I received a lot of questions at the CCNA level and some at CCNP level. The majority of the questions were at layer 2 such as port security, STP, VTP, VLANs, switch fundamentals. At layer 3, TCP/IP fundamentals, OSPF, EIGRP and BGP.

    Please note I was already working for the company as Network technician. I had compete for the position in order to move up. There were about ten candidates that were interviewed for the position.

    Horrible interview process. I went to Rochester to interview for a position supposedly in Chelmsford, MA. I have no idea how the interview went because I can't get any response for the company HR department which is to tally unprofessional.
