    Anonymous Employee in Ellenwood, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Intelsat in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After responding to an email from them to set up a time and date for a phone interview, you will get a call from the department manager. If you pass that, you will get a phone call for a face to face group interview. During that interview they read from a prepared list of questions and apparently score you from your answers. Although you will not see how they score you it will determine if you move to the next level, the job.

    Associate Technician RF Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intelsat.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application on their website. Originally interviewed for RF Operations technician, was turned down and asked to re-interview for associate technician position. Was interviewed by 2 supervisors over the phone. Both were friendly, professional and made it as comfortable as possible. Interview lasts about an hour.

    After doing a few interviews with Intelsat I can say that their interview questions are predetermined. I was even told this by the interviewers. They ask 5 questions and you give your initial answer. Then the dig deeper and try to get more out of you to see what you know. A few of the questions were technical and a few were behavioral.

    You will be asked to describe and uplink and downlink flow in detail.

Many standard interview questions were asked such as what are your strengths and weaknesses? As well as how would you describe yourself in one word? Overall, it was a very satisfactory experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Intelsat in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The process was initially questioning via email, then a phone interview and finally a skype interview, as I lived out of market. It was a pretty standard hiring process - HR contact, two interviews with hiring managers (manager and supervisor), then back to HR. The offer and acceptance were handled via Fed Ex. and start date was negotiated with the supervisor over the phone.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Intelsat in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    For new candidates, hired out of school, the company first conducted short phone interviews lasting 30-60 minutes. The phone interview had representatives from all the various departments within the company. After the phone interview, the applicants that made it to the next level of interviewing were flown from the school location to the main technical HQ in Atlanta, GA. Multiple interviews were conducted with various departments. Each interview was tailored to the department specific requirements, e.g. video= video related, RF= RF related, data=data related. All departments, however, had basic questions regarding basic RF propagation.
