    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviews. The first was with 3 managers looking for an engineer and it felt kinda like the third degree. There were a lot of questions regarding my experience with different subjects, situations and computer programs and even questions about me personally. I didn't expect a second interview, but the second was a lot more relaxed. It was with the people I would be working with if offered the job. It was mainly to see if our personalities would clash.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at L-3 Communications (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    The interview was one hour long...He asked the questions with in questions. It seemed like the interviewer was not satisfied with my responses which was making me nervous. There was also a case given that I had to sell to the interviewer and again when I was explaining it to him, he was adding his ideas to my ideas which made me confuse and had hard time explaining my point fully.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at L-3 Communications in May 2015.

    Interview

    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 days. I interviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • Am I willing to deploy to combat situations? Am I able to work on the weekend, early in the morning or at night? Would I be willing to be on call? Do I have experience in any branch of service? What foreign languages do I speak?   Answer Question
