    Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Exelis (Rochester, NY).


    After speaking with representatives at my university career fair I applied for a few positions online. After about a month I received a pre-screening phone call and had a conversation with an HR representative to set up the next interview.

    The phone interview was with 2 senior engineers, the questions that they asked were mostly behavioral. A few days later I received another email, so I could schedule an on-site visit.

    The on-site visit consisted of a tour the facility that I would be working at and a group behavioral interview. The interview was very similar to the one that I had on the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions including: where do you see yourself 5 years, why Exelis, what makes you the best candidate, etc.   Answer Question
