    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 dayinterviewed 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.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    The interview was scheduled for 4 hours, and did last all of it. I met with about 6 different people. A lot of the questions between the individuals were similar. The repetitiveness made some of the interview time feel like a waste. It was typical questions based upon the position at hand, nothing too complex. There was also a small walk through of one of the manufacturing areas, which was cool to see.

    I was told during the process that a decision would be made in two weeks. There was no further communication from the company for almost six weeks. (even after a polite update request at the two week mark)

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of, how would you handle this situation, type scenarios were asked.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I submitted my résumé and hoped for a response. I received a phone call from HR to set an interview. It was with the manager and director. After that interview there was a 10 min interview with HR to talk about benefits, etc. Not too scary.

    Export Compliance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    I thought the Interview went well enough. There were certain shortcomings in the description that I was aware of. Back to back interviews for 4.5 hours. Each Interview was essentially a copy of the previous. Internal communication seemed lacking. Position was replacing a retiring position (one of the interviewers), and they seemed to be looking for the replacement to be a younger duplicate of the retiree for the position. Open communication with HR through most of process, worst part was the communication simply stopped from HR. No declination of position was given.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions including "Why do you want to work for us?" and "Why do you feel you would fit this position better than any other applicants?"   Answer Question
