    Met with 5 managers individually who took me through the different offices/roles. They gave me a pretty good idea of what to expect in the role, highlighting some of the negative aspects so I had a good enough idea of what I was getting myself into. And that's about it. Took about 5 hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at L-3 Communications (Tampa, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple but I feel like the interview was solely for appearances. I attended a job fair in downtown Tampa and was interviewed on the spot. The questions were more based towards my thoughts on work conditions and not towards my ability to perform all-source analysis. The only idea L-3 could have made towards my ability to do my job was through my resume.
