    Systems Integration/Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Harris.

    Interview Details

    When I was brought in for the interview, there were three other people in the conference room; my supervisor and their immediates. They were pleasant and were interested in what I had to say. They were receptive and professional. I waited maybe one week to find out that I had been hired. After that, I went to the corporate office for new-employee introduction to the company. I was educated on the company, their mission and their expectations from me.

    Interview Questions
