    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Aerospace Corporation.

    Interview

    I had a 45 minute phone interview with who would end up being my direct supervisor. It was very casual and only involved discussing details mentioned on the resume that I submitted online related to the position. It was very much an unscripted interview, so YMMV. Overall, it was a good experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at The Aerospace Corporation in April 2015.

    Interview

    Got a short 15 min phone call from a manager to discuss my background and CV, and schedule a time for the full phone interview. The actual interview lasted about an hour, there were 3 people on the line, mostly asking behavior and experience questions. It took a while (~ 1 month) for them to get back to me and it took even longer for an official offer and information to come through.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at The Aerospace Corporation.

    Interview

    It a penal of technical presentation. It was friendly interaction. HR is very very very slow. They are very inefficient. You need to closely in contact with your hiring manager during entire process. If you don't have any patients then this is not right environment for you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at The Aerospace Corporation.

    Interview

    Hiring process was pretty straightforward. Only a couple of questions were technical (just to get a gage of your experience). A lot of the questions revolved around how you would deal with certain problems, how you would approach a task, how you would react to certain scenarios. They asked about projects that I had worked on, what kind of projects I ran into while working on these , and how I dealt with them, etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at The Aerospace Corporation.

    Interview

    Ask pretty standard questions which mostly consisted of behavioral. Interviewers also asked for examples of said behavioral questions. If your applying to a position not particularly related to the aerospace division, they asked why you picked your chosen major. I was talked to by my potential 2 hiring managers in their civil division. They actually called me one day before to schedule an interview because it was coming towards the end of summer and i assumed they were still in need of interns.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no technical questions for the internship. Examples of behavior questions include: When was a time you displayed leadership, What are you strengths and weaknesses, and When was a time you faced extreme difficulty and how did you overcome it.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at The Aerospace Corporation in June 2014.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview with the hiring manager and was hired for the internship pretty much on the spot. I think they wanted to hire someone quickly and kind of last minute for the summer so it's possible I got away easy. The only thing that took a while was HR processing everything, which took nearly a month.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked really basic questions such as my strengths and weaknesses and a few questions about my background.   Answer Question
