    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    SNC's engineering/management hiring is a joke. They simply don't know what they are doing when it comes to hiring, and they think that they can just google questions to ask. They are a defense contractor, but if you want to know anything about any one of their projects, just interview for a position with one. They will sit there with their buds all in on the same interview (woo, meeting time = free soda! 30 mins? Better charge an hour and a half.), and talk about how great their project is, even down to minutia of how it works.

    Interview Questions
    • And when the interview is over, you realize they didn't ask you a single challenging question, unless it was some small engineer in the back who realizes they are going to hire a doofus and is trying to pipe up to save the project or comapny. No matter, the manager or two guys from the project assigned to 'hire' just have to like you. There might also be a third person in on the interview, who those two know, and they think to themselves, for example, "this SNC guy out in Timbuktu knows RF. I know RF stands for Radio Frequency, and I think this job needs wireless stuff, so I'll invite him to the interview as well." Your resume gets plopped into a shared folder where it might get deleted on accident, and your name gets placed on a spreadsheet where they have people who may have overheard the conversation give a thumbs up or down. Most of this is done on project time and money, and SNC employees must 'ALWAYS be on a charge number, even if it's borderline or plain unethical. They are starting to utilize more the 'official hiring folk' from up front who think they know best, but really have no clue what an engineer is supposed to do, and so unfortunately these people will filter out the real good people. Your best bet is to try to contact an engineer on a team to get your name past those guys.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Low ball, slightly higher low ball + guilt trip, 150% matching for 10% of income? "good" medical? ok. I don't have time to do the math in my head so i suppose I'll accept.
