Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Exelis (Alameda, CA) in Jul 2020

Interview

Upper management did not provide an honest assessment of the culture. I asked about their IT support, and they responded great. I found that not to be the case as I was provided two defective laptops and was expected to perform work with hard deadlines. I believe management is walking on a fine line as they can not keep up expectations due to systems and processes not optimized. They do not mention this in interview process.

Interview

Two phone interviews: one with an HR rep as a prescreen before having a call with the person who is now my supervisor and then an onsite interview with my supervisor and two employees who I would be working closely with. The two calls were just personality getting to know each other type deal. The onsite interview was more about my skills, what I know, and how I can adapt and fit in with the company and team.

Interview Questions
  • They asked me about my technical abilities as well as my ability to do things like modeling and documentation

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Exelis (Rochester, NY) in Jun 2015

Interview

Very slow. Initial contact was made about two weeks after applying, and then spent nearly two weeks scheduling a phone screen with a recruiter. Conversation went well, but no response after following up. Suddenly was contacted again by a second recruiter two weeks later, screened a second time, and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager the following day. Conversation went well, and two weeks later was invited on site. Interview was a rather brief panel discussion with five interviewers (90 mins)--hectic, but seemed to go alright. Was told that there were other interviewing candidates, but should expect an answer "soon." After nearly a month of unresponded follow up messages, recruiter said a decision had not yet been made. The following week the job was reposted.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Exelis (Monrovia, CA) in May 2015

Interview

Phone interview with one person and an on site interview with two people. The whole thing was delayed and delayed and then finally the company did the entire process in about a week. The plane flight and interviews were always scheduled last minute (aka we need yo to fly down tomorrow) and was kind of silly as after driving and flying to the interview I spent less than an hour talking to the people. I was then just told they would get back to me soon, but my flight out did not leave for almost another 12 hours leaving me nothing to do and with no real understanding of the company.

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

Interview

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.
