    Vibro-acoustics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  El Segundo, CA
    Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Aerospace Corporation in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was extremely unorganized and unprofessional. I'm sure the company is great, however the individuals in the group I applied with appeared lazy and unwilling to work. I came in very eager and excited to apply my knowledge and skillset, while management continuously told me about lag time between projects and to expect "boring" days. I interviewed in March and received no communication until August. The only reason I heard anything was because I contacted the hiring manager, and the head of HR on numerous occasions. Once I spoke with HR, they told me to expect a written offer within the week; the week went by with no response since the HR representative handling my profile decided to drop everything and take a little vacation. Eventually this misery ended after 4 more phone calls to HR and a terse email to the hiring manager. I was notified that they found somebody more qualified in vibro-acoustic engineering. Ironic, considering I went to Georgia Tech and obtained a masters degree in aerospace engineering specializing in acoustics and vibrations. I think more qualified probably means cheaper. My primary regret is passing up additional responsibilities with my current employer at the expense of prospectively being hired by such a slow and disorganized company. Expect nothing less from an FFRDC. It's dangerous for a company to fabricate no tangible products, spawn zero innovation, and simply consult on the same outdated information or decades. This was a blessing in disguise.
