    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    Started with HR providing forms to be filled out. You are expected to be VERY detailed and specific with names and dates. HR will confirm everything on your resume and the forms before scheduling an interview with a hiring manager. The first interview is about an hour with the hiring manager and one or two other members on the team or group. Then you will be asked back for a second interview with the hiring manager and department manager. The interview is very thorough with technical details and job history. Be prepared to talk about your previous work experience down to day by day functions.

    Interview Questions
    • Wasn't anything difficult as long as you are 100% honest. L-3 is a government contractor and the government will do additional screening. Anything less than 100% honesty is grounds for termination.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Received an offer letter and called HR asking for an increase. Was denied because I had been offered their maximum budgeted salary. HR strongly hinted not to push and I didn't. I knew other people were interviewing for my position and the company could find an alternative.

    Intern Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at L-3 Communications in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a college career fair and she told me to apply online. I listed her as a reference and then I was invited by phone to fly out to Greenville, TX (at no cost to me of course) for an interview. I left Thursday morning and came back Friday evening. The hotel was really nice. More representatives took us out to eat Thursday night at a nice steak restaurant. All day Friday was the interview. We watched two presentations and did two interviews before lunch. We sat at individual tables with our names marked so that the interviewers knew where to go. The interviews were managers who actually did this job or have done this job for a living. The questions were conversation style and quite thorough. They went over my resume word for word and really dug deep for my knowledge of each item listed.

    After those two interviews we toured the facility and let me just say it is amazing. If I was on the fence about wanting to work there before, the tour solidified my desire to really want to be there and learn what they had to teach. Futuristic is not the word. It soon became apparent that these people can teach you everything you need to be successful in any part of IT. Even if you use this as a stepping stone, any company would be lucky to have you after L-3 is done with you. When we came back there was the third interview and we got back in the limo and headed for the airport to go home.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenville, TX
    Application Details

    interviewed at L-3 Communications in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I gave them my resume at a University job fair.
    I got the call the next week and the interview was the week after that.

    The interview day was with about 20 other new graduates and was very casual.
    I interviewed with 3 different people. Each was about 30 minutes.
    The questions were easy. Nothing really technical. The people were very nice and I really enjoyed the day of interviews and tours.

    The company and I are not really a good fit, so I was not surprised or disappointed when I did not get an offer.
