I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MITRE in May 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process is very laid back. There is a phone screen, and then a group interview. During the group interview a technical presentation is given.

Interview Question – No curve ball questions.   Answer Question

Software Systems Engineer Interview

Software Systems Engineer
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MITRE in June 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online through the company website. Several weeks later, I received an email asking me to do a phone interview. I did one, and they asked me about my background, my comfort with various programming languages, etc. About a week and a half later, they asked me to come in for an on-site interview. They flew me across the country and put me up in the Ritz Carlton. The on-site interview felt like a formality -- they didn't ask me any technical questions, and spent more time telling me about what they do. I got the offer a few days later.

Interview Question – Have you ever done any sort of computer simulations (physics, traffic, economic, etc)?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They told me there was no negotiation.

Software Systems Engineer Interview

Software Systems Engineer
Bedford, MA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at MITRE in May 2008.

Interview Details – Very simple process, each of the workers in the area would talk in a one on one interview and describe what they need from the new employee and you would meet with the hiring manager and he would outline what exactly ( usually the job description) they are looking for in an employee. Quick and easy process, technical questions about your job then you usually get to know within a few weeks if you received the job or not.

Interview Question – Please describe how to implement a function to print out a linked list backwards   View Answers (2)
