    Antenna Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Merrimack, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Merrimack, NH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an e-mail from HR asking for an in-person interview about 3 weeks later. The interview consisted of 9 ~30 min. interviews with engineers in the Antenna group from all levels as well as a lunch interview with the Technical Development Manager. I ended up exceeding each of the 30 min. time slots by about 15 min. each which extended the total interview from about 5 hrs to roughly 6.5 hrs (which was seen as a positive). I ended the interview with the Group Manager because the Technical Manager needed to leave unexpectedly and talked with him about why I wanted the position and my educational/career aspirations (he seemed excited that I was excited).

    Overall, it was a very straightforward and enjoyable experience. The group was friendly and engaging with almost all of the questions relating to my experience and why I was interested in the position and/or Antenna Engineering (presumably because I was a fresh out of a Physics undergrad -- i.e. I wasn't an engineer). They all seemed to appreciate that I asked questions specific to not only the position but also continuing education programs such as an M.S.E.E. in RF/Microwave (also, presumably, because of my general Physics background).

    I did my best to be as genuine and personable as I could be (without overdoing the personable part as this can sometimes be off-putting) and I think they really appreciated that. A little advice for entry level engineers with interviews coming up:

    1. Know what the position entails and make sure you can relate your experience and education back to the job description (especially if you don't have an engineering degree)

    2. Know what you want and why you want it

    3. Just be yourself (but stay professional) because, if they don't want the 'real you', you don't want them

    Good luck!

    Entry Level Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (San Diego, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Looking at other reviews was very helpful so read them all carefully.

    About a week after I applied online, I heard back and scheduled a phone screen. This part simply went over my resume, interests, salary expectation - no technical component. On-site was 3 interviews, all engineers. Make sure to practice your standard "why here", "what are challenges", "favorite work" kinds of soft questions. They are interested in seeing your ability and willingness to communicate OOP concepts. You get lunch after with some employees afterwards to ask any lingering questions. Overall, it was a nice experience. Going into it with the mindset that they are looking to get to know you and your technical history makes it fairly casual and fun. For my offer, salary and benefits were as expected.

    Interview Questions

    • On-site: Three rounds of self-introduction, project history and a lot of OOP (which I explained with pretty explicit relation to Java).   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview

    Phone interview; called in to a room with around 5 engineers. Mostly behavioral questions, a few technical. The questions weren't very difficult, but it was stressful to be on the phone with that many people. Didn't leave with the impression that it went extremely well or extremely poorly.
