    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation.

    Interview Details

    The recruiting team at SNC is phenomenal! I worked with Mike who helped me through each step of the process with such enthusiasm for the company I would have been devastated not to get an offer! Mike was open and honest about the position and responded to all of my concerns with the highest professionalism. I was most impressed with how available Mike was during the process and how he made me feel like a part of the team right from the start. The team had me in my desk 2 weeks after my first phone interview.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation.

    Interview Details

    They were always late doing interviews with potential employees due to the volume of work but that is still no excuse. Once the process was started it always went smooth and the questioning on the particular job at hand was always crisp and clear.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial screening call with a talent specialist before they brought me in for an on-site interview. I had help from an acquaintance so I believe I skipped the phone interview phase. On-site involved a one-on-one with my potential manager then an interview with three senior engineers/managers. I also had a brief interview with two directors in another program for a second position. The trip lasted a little over three hours, including meeting with HR.

    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sparks, NV
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sparks, NV
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I talked to a recruiter at a job fair, and about a month later I got a call asking to set up an interview time. I was brought in on a Monday from 8:00am-1:00pm and met with a Senior Software Engineer, other Software Engineers, and upper level management (I didn't expect to meet with people that high up on the chain of command, but they seemed genuiniely interested in what I was interested in, had studied, etc.).

    I generally just talked with each person I met with about my employement history, what I learned from those positions, projects I had worked on at school, what I am interested in, etc. There were no questions like "how do you detect a cycle in a linked list" etc. I assume because my resume and GPA spoke for itself.

    After the interview, I was offered a position about two weeks later and started a couple weeks after that.

    Interview Questions
    • An interviewer asked about the Fast Fourier Transform, but not as an interview question, he was just excited that I knew what it was and could talk about it. He asked how I would address a particular problem with the FFT, which was easy to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As a fresh-out-of-college employee there was not much negotiation to be done.
