    Interview

    There were three rounds of interview. Basic interview process but there were many candidates. Interview took hour an hour for each round. The team was friendly and asked usual interview questions. Although preparation is required. The panel was interested in knowing how genuine, spontaneous and good communicator you are.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe.

    Interview

    Hired as a contract to hire. Interview was short as I knew someone in the company. But once I was a contractor and tired to come on full time permanent, that is where I was told my position was never slated to be permanent. Luckily they did some shuffling around to make space for me, but I came on with lower pay than anticipated and there wasn't much of a negotiation. I made more money at my last job, but because there is matching 4% 401K I let it go.

    Negotiation

    there wasn't much of a negotiation when you get hired full time permanent.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO).

    Interview

    Very friendly recruiting process and very professional. My references even complimented on the professionalism of the recruiter's questions. Interviewed with my future supervisor, department head and a former department employee. Because of the nature of the business the interview felt very stuffy and that everything wasn't being disclosed about the position. In hindsight there were a lot of red flags about the position that were mentioned in the interview that I ignored.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions on my past experience and working with others. A lot of focus was put on working with difficult people.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little room for negotiation - took a pay cut When I accepted the offer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO).

    Takes a very long time to get processed and hired for full time position. Contractors are very different and seem to get treated better in the process.

    Ground Systems Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at DigitalGlobe (Longmont, CO) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Someone in the company gave my resume to HR. I got a phone call the next day to set up a phone interview with HR. That interview went very well, and I was invited onsite. I had 30 minutes with 1-2 people at a time for 2 1/2 hours. 30 minutes goes by too fast, so just be ready. Then I was taken to lunch a week later with members of the team and the hiring manager. I was presented with an offer which I accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • A couple interviewers asked good technical questions (describe the end-to-end flow from a thermistor to operator console at whatever level of knowledge you have), and others just wanted to know basic info about my background and experience. The lunch was very casual, and lasted almost 2 hours. There were no curve balls in this process. Very much as you would expect it to go.   Answer Question
