    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at L-3 Communications (Menlo Park, CA).

    Interview

    The process started with a phone screening interview with HR. Next was a longer more detailed interview the hiring manager that lasted about an hour. A few weeks later, they flew me down for an on-site interview. The interview lasted all day. It consisted of me sitting in a room, with about 7 or 8 different people rotating in to interview me. It was long and exhausting, but not terribly difficult. I went on a tour at the end and was pretty drained by all the interviews. I wish I had gone on the tour first so I could have asked more questions during the day. The people all seemed nice.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part was the length of the interview and the repetitive questions I got from people walking in and out. Most of the questions themselves were pretty standard situational questions and resume questions.   Answer Question
