    Sustainment Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with them at a Career Fair at my school. Applied for interview through school's job board website. Within 2 weeks of the application period being closed I received an e-mail saying I had been selected for an interview on campus. Went to interview and then 2 weeks later was called and e-mailed saying they wanted to bring me down to Gainesville for an on-site interview.

    The company places you in a hotel nearby and requires that you be at the site around 8:00 in the morning. You first speak with someone from HR discussing all of the benefits the company would offer and then they take you to who would be your boss if you started working there. You speak with that person and several other positions throughout the day. Each person walks you through what they do for the company. They each have a copy of your resume and ask you questions about classes and experience that you may have. Interviews are relatively informal but still very professional and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and you may be speaking with 1 or 2 people at a time.

    You spend practically the entire work day there speaking with and walking around the hangars and offices and even eat lunch with a member of the team you would be working with. At the end of the day, you speak with HR again regarding how the day went and wanting to know if you have any other offers or competition. They take about 1-2 weeks after you interview to respond with an offer or rejection e-mail. The e-mail was sort of disappointing because the one I received was a template of a rejection letter and very impersonal.

    Later, you receive a check in the mail as compensation for your travels.

    Interview Questions
    • I received one technical question and it was only because of an experience the employee had had there when they started. Most of the questions were very open ended and mainly focused on asking about experience or previous projects you had worked on as well as a few behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    Supply Chain Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    Was a very long process. Took over a month before I was contacted. The first phone call was very general, just double checking some of the information on my resume and a few questions about my previous experience. It then took another two weeks before they had a time to interview me. Interview was in front of 3 people and fairly basic. It really was more of a conversation. I felt very good about the interview, but wasn't given an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview was a group interview with 3 different people.The interview really didn't have any questions, it was mainly them explaining the job. Then I was scheduled a video interview at their location closest to me. During that interview it was with the same people and again just explained the job. The whole interview there was barely any questions it was them just explaining the job. I have a feeling I was just one of the candidates HR required them to interview, and they had a candidate in mind already.

    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    Employee requisitions do not always do a good job of defining what is being looked for in a candidate because most of the page is L3 "waving their flag" rather than describing the job requirements.
    It can take weeks to review candidates, HR does not do a great job down selecting and aligning to the job need. Expect to have a phone interview with the hiring manager. If that goes well, an on site interview is likely with multiple mangers, and would be co-workers + a facility tour. Do some homework - know what they make, look up the person on LinkedIn, be sure you ask about expectations and the working environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions are generally easy to answer. Discuss your experiences or past work.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    In order to know what to ask for you need to know what the job expectations are. If they ask you up front I recommend giving them a salary range rather than a specific number. Salaries are aligned with job grade - it is better to be in the lower part of a job grade salary range than near the top so you don't get maxed out.
