Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Melbourne, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Harris in November 2013.

Interview Details – I attended a career fair at my school and my resume was forwarded to the different departments in the company. I received an email about doing a phone screening a couple months later which led to a follow up interview at the headquarters in Melbourne FL. The interview lasted from about 8:00 to 3:30 with 5 different staff members. The questions were straight forward and about what I expected.

Interview Question – Very unusual question by the last interviewer.

How many musical notes are played on a radio station in 24 hours?

Material Planner Interview

Material Planner
Palm Bay, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed 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 Question – I do not recall a difficult or unexpected question. Any question that was asked, I was typically trained to answer. At the very least, there was a resource available to answer the question in the case that I did not know.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There were no negotiations since I was a new employee with no experience nor college education. When I obtained my BA, they gave me a nice promotion and were ecstatic to do so,
