    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    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.

    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

    Software Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Greenville, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at L-3 Communications (Greenville, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I met a representative at a college career fair. About two weeks later, I was contacted by HR asking for a transcript. Then I received an invitation for a day-long visit. That got delayed due to weather so the visit was about a month later.

    The visit itself was great. Started at 7:30am and was done at 3:00pm. There were 11 applicants (mostly there for internships). We were given breakfast and a few presentations, then our first interview. Then we had a tour for over an hour, had lunch, then our last 2 interviews.

    HR told me that the interviews were like "speed-dating" and I had no idea what that meant. All it means is that each applicant sits at their own table, a manager takes a seat on the other side, and you have exactly 40 minutes with them. All of my interviews that day (3 in all) were not technical - just a few questions about my resume and experience and then mostly about what they did.

    I ended up receiving an offer for Greenville, TX. The offer was nice, but I had received a better offer elsewhere.
