    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.

    Talented Employee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Upper management was more concerned about their bonuses then their employees. Employees were laid-off if you had more than 10 years of seniority and based on their race and sex. Some employees with over 25 years of service were laid-off prior to the age of 55 so the company would pay little or no retirement including health benefits. Upper management was more concerned with hopping in the sack to climb the corporate ladder then evaluating their employees. You would have a better chance working for Donald Trump.

    Reasons for Declining

    before having the interview, the recruiter asked me if 50k-60k annually is fine. and at the time i haven't done my research for the salary range so i said its fine. after the interview process i got a called on friday 6/6/2014 informing me that they offer me the job for 50k. i told the recruiter that based on my research the average pay for such position in my city is 67K and i would like to know that reasons why your paying less than the average. she said she need to discuses that with the hiring manager. i told her ok. on Monday she called again to inform me that they cannot offer more than 50K because i didn't much experience in such field. i told her ok when do you need an answer by? she said in 24 hours and then she said she will send a formal written offer via email. she hanged up the phone. mot even more than 5 min later, she called again to tell me that she is not going to send the formal offer because the hiring manager decided to withdraw the offer before he thinks if the salary is going to be an issue , he doesn't wanna deal with it later on. i was in shock for such aggressive behavior from big "manager". this indicates to me how short-tempered and impatient he is with no leadership skills and no professionalism.
