Sales Support Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at L-3 Communications in January 2010.

Interview Details – Nothing especially noteworthy, wish they would have focused more on my military experience. Having a wealth of military experience t draw from, I felt that the interview could have been more focused on the best way to leverage that experience into the company's long view goals.

Interview Question – Nothing of note, I wish the questions had been a bit more robust. I tend to believe that the experience at the time was leaning more towards hiring from the civilian population versus a prior military candidate. The Ft Hood situation had occurred within the last 6-9 months and may have made them a bit wary of certain candidates, which is understandable, but at the same time disparaging.   Answer Question

Engineering Technician I Interview

Anonymous Employee
Middletown, RI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at L-3 Communications in September 2013.

Interview Details – After submitting my resume, I was called the same week to schedule an interview. During the interview I was interviewed by 2 Lead techs. They read over my resume and asked me general questions about what I had learned in school. No theory questions, which was what I was anticipating. They were very upfront and honest about everything and answered all of my questions. No question was over the top. After the interview, I received a job offer call in about another week. I accepted and have been working ever since.

Interview Question – Have you ever worked with a connector with this many pins?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation.. Everyone is paid on the same scale.
