Electrical Engineer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at L-3 Communications in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was called to schedule a phone interview as I was not in the local area from which they were hiring. They called me and introduced themselves, the position, and then asked me to describe myself, my history, my education, and my experience. It was much more of a conversation than a formal interview process and I ended up really enjoying myself. They asked questions as I spoke, and I started from my high school experience and what led me to choose engineering - this then branched off into extracurricular activities and things that I learned and experienced through my college career. I wrapped with my current experiences and what made me want to apply to their company.
Interview Question – The most difficult question asked why I wanted to work for them and how I expected my work to be there. Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at L-3 Communications in March 2010.

Following the phone interview, I had an onsite interview in front of a panel, was required to do a presentation, and 3 work out problems on the white board that took approximately 5 mins to solve each one.
Interview Question – I was required to answer three very technical questions on the white board using a marker and in front of 8 managers. Answer Question

Sales Support Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
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
