    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Orbital Sciences.

    Interview Details

    Email scheduled for phone interview, phone interview, and then on-site interview at HQ. My resume was talked the entire time, there were questions about what I'd like to do. I believe I was interview for a few positions while I was there, I knew when I walked out at the end of the day that I'd receive an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't think the questions were all that difficult - preparation to talk about in significant detail about everything on my resume was difficult, if anything.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate accommodations for relocation, moving, and other issues with leaving my previous employer - they worked very well with me.

    Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Orbital Sciences in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I started at the company as an intern that was at the local university and worked part-time during the school year for about two years. This was basically my interview period. The actual interview for the position was mostly a formality but it was with one of the department managers and he asked a few questions and mostly asked questions about direction within the company and insights that I had gleaned over the two-year internship. For this company, I would definitely recommend interning early if possible as this seems to be the easiest way to get a position and also an easy way to get connected to a lot of the development work they do for young engineers.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected part of the interviewing process was well the management seemed to know one another. The person that interviewed me was from a different department but knew so much about the department I was interviewing for that he had several good comments about the experience and skills needed to do that job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate and my advice to people is to be prepared. Have some searching online through this site and other similar sites to ask the right questions.
