Principal Technologist Interview

Principal Technologist
Albuquerque, NM

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Sandia in June 2011.

Interview Details – Took forever to get in the door. Interview process was fairly simple, 4-5 different interview including one outside the hiring organization. The waiting game for the offer was fairly painful. Took about 3 months to get everything settled.

Interview Question – No real difficult questions. Hardest part was college GPA issues. If you have lower than a 3.5, plan on having to justify yourself to upper management   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very limitied negotiation. They take in all your info :job experience, degrees, salary and feed it into their formula and spit out your salary. Manager actually does first round of negotiations with HR.
