    Material Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Palm Bay, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palm Bay, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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 Questions
    • 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,

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harris in October 2010.

    You get 4 or 5 interviewers one at a time for about 45 minutes each. You get a lunch break. Whatever language you have on your resume, know some technical questions about it. Also, for the behavioral questions, try to use the STAR method to answer them. Some whiteboard coding questions may be asked, but nothing too hard. Be able to talk about your past internships and past school projects.

    Senior Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dulles, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dulles, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Harris in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Multiple interviews in one day. Organized and on time. The recruiter was good with follow up and keeping me in the loop for where they were in the process. If you are in HR you know how the interviewing process goes for us. Lots of assessment on fit, style, how you handle situations. Very behavioral based. Will interview with HR peers and client group leaders/members.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary. Mostly the "tell me about a time when..." how you deal with conflict, what are your areas of expertise. Just show your personality so they can get to know you.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiating. If there is, you go through the recruiter who has to get the ok from the hiring manager and HR Business Partner. You can't negotiate vacation time, PTO, etc. Note as of June 2013 they are slowly doing away with the 9/80 schedule. This was the main selling point.
