    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    I applied for positions online and also spoke with several recruiters at a college career fair. A recruiter emailed me with an opportunity and asked if I was interested. I was invited for an interview the following week. For the interview I was asked to prepare a 20-30 minute presentation on a technical subject of my choice.

    The interview consisted of a series of meetings with different members of the group in which I would be working. Many questions were technical.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected: In my last meeting with the group manger, he asked, "What was the hardest question you've been asked [in the interviews today]?"   View Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    The company is very picky in the engineers being hired. Being able to really technically describe your experience is good. My experience is that the HR representative will introduce you to the specific functional manager posting the position, where they will introduce you to their department and give an overview of the work. Afterwards, you are escorted around to various people in the department for individual interviews, usually lasting .5 to 1 hrs. Each individual will feed their assessment of you back to the hiring manager. Anyone that any negative comments from the individual interviewers usually do not get offers.

    Interview Questions
    • There was not really any trick or difficult questions. You really get asked about technical things that your resume talks about. Example: How does an IP packet obtain it's MAC address?   Answer Question

    Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at L-3 Communications in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met them at the career fair and things looked really positive. But then I didn't hear back from them for few months and finally got a call for a phone interview. They asked me quite a few networking questions but I told them I was not a network guy, more a modeling/sim guy. They asked me a question about pointing lasers at one another since that was my research area for my PhD. The question was if I had two aircrafts traveling at the same altitudes, how would you figure out the direction a laser should point in Airplane 1 to hit Airplane 2. I didn't think it went well but then they wanted to me in person. I visited two groups there: Network and RF group. I gave my presentation to the network group about my project, it went really well and they were interested. One guy wanted to ask me about FPGAs but I told him I didn't have experience in that and he was fine. He then asked me about different network protocols (TCP/IP and UDP) and when certain ones can be used.

    After that another interviewer came in and asked me about the OSI model and which one I thought I would fit in the best. He asked me a question about pointing cameras to one another on two trucks placed at different locations in space. He then also asked about the difference between C/C++ and C#.

    I met with the RF group and got a tour of their facilities. Not too many questions asked there, just what I wanted to do with my career.

    We then went out to lunch and had a very pleasant discussion. I was sure I had the job but they were looking for someone with more of a networking background. Still I expect to hear back from their RF group as they are also interviewing candidates.
