    Electrical Electronics Assembler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Greenville, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at L-3 Communications in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Everyone was very professional and willing to help. When you fill out an application (online), ensure your resume has "keywords" that match the position for which you are applying. Please come dressed to your interview in business attire. The mere fact that you were asked to come in for an interview means they are interested in you and that you beat out 100's of people. When I interviewed, I was shocked at how many older (30+) interviewees showed up looking like they were going to the park or some place casual. Make sure you speak like you have common sense, even if you know you don't. 70% of the interview happens from when you walk in the door to the handshake. Other than that, do your best to make a great impression because you don't know when you will have another opportunity!

    Interview Questions
    • If you are prepared and have taken time to write out your strengths, weaknesses and goals, then no question will be too difficult. If I had to pick a question, it would be when they asked; "Tell us what you have done in the past that relates to this position?" It seems simple but, if you decide to answer the question using your memory, you may omit some important experience that could help you solidify your position.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was, there is no negotiation phase. Meaning what they offer, either you can take it or leave it. I can't speak on "higher up" positions. But for entry level positions, there isn't much negotiation.
