    Enterprise Architect Interview

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at L-3 Stratis in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    After having lunch with an executive that I have worked with previously, I was referred to the recruiter team. Recruiter calls, screens your profile to see if you meet the requirements of the position and ask the perfunctory HR questions (timeline, clearance, etc.). If you meet the cut, the recruiter sets up some follow-on interviews with CTO leadership team. There may be follow-on interviews as the job requires.

    Had a telephone engineer with the senior Information Assurance Engineer/Project Manager for the new contract.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at L-3 Stratis in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied to an L-3 job notice online and included a resume. I was contacted a week or so later and asked my willingness to relocate to Germany, and my current security clearance. At that point they sent my information forward to the Site Manager, who got in contact with me about technical points for the job. There were others on the phone call to ask finer technical questions related to the particular position. At this point, I pretty well felt good about whether they liked my skillset or not, and was shortly thereafter offered the job.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was cordial, but they were constrained by the contract with what they could pay. I was able to jiggle them up about 3K.
    Of course, it's all dependent on your skillset and experience within their contract, so of course a Systems Engineer will be compensated quite a bit higher than a beginner IT Tech.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at L-3 Stratis.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process is a joke. Not a knock against the recruiters because mine was very helpful, but clearly had no military experience. It seems it is more who you know and not about what you have done to earn your job.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview and vetting process could be considered comical. As previously mentioned the staff is clueless.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Zero negotiation. L3 made an offer and you accept or you do not have a job. No bonuses, no raises.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at L-3 Stratis in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and was shortly called for a phone interview. This was a simple conversation between myself and the recruiter. I was invited in for a face to face where I met a HR person and potential co-worker. The interview was relaxed and I was asked technical questions. The interviewers were very friendly and knowledgeable and the face-to-face interview was about 30-45 minutes. Very pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I was prepared for questions about myself and previous successes/experiences. I was, to a degree, asked about my technical background, but it seemed that they already knew enough about me. I was asked how I would accomplish specific tasks if I were hired.   Answer Question
