    Director of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at L-3 Communications (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    very lengthy interview, detailed questions, multiple folks through out the day. Most of the folks that I interviewed with were friendly and asked detailed related questions. Main interviewer asked what -if- scenarios and asked questions that I would consider illegal even referring to that he did not want to hire any grey haired cronies... and this was a senior person in the company. Poor interview skills, cocky attitude, and very large ego. His division is supposedly not doing well and I can see partially why.

    Software Engineer I Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview

    We talked about several different positions in the plane design and analysis areas. Look up some of their planes like the MC-12W or the RC-135; it gives you a good talking point to start at. Talk with them like you are talking with a friend; it is very relaxed and causal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications (Norfolk, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very relaxed and informative. I came in and 3 men asked me questions and supplied me with extensive information on what the position entailed. I sat at a round table with 2 interviewers and a man behind a desk. I don't want to use names. I waited awhile and was eventually called back for a second interview. In this instance the lab manager was present. This was my first interview since serving 20 years in the Navy. It was nice that it was such a relaxed atmosphere. I do not know yet if I will be offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my experience as a technician. I was asked why I was not applying for a supervisory position with al of my years of experience. For a large part of the interview the 3 gentlemen explained to me what their process was. It was explained to me that there would be three separate areas I would work in, depending on the priority of the job.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR. After the initial phone screen process, I was brought in twice for on-site interviews. The interviews were mix of technical and non-technical nature. The technical interviews had me answer questions about object oriented design and development in C++ and about conditional probability and Bayesian inference. During non-technical interviews, most questions were about my previous experience and how I would fit in their team.
