    Controls Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Monrovia, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Exelis (Clifton, NJ) in October 2011.

    Interview

    It was a joke. They asked if I could design PCB's. I said yes and that was it. You would think they would at least sit you at a computer and ask to show how well you know software programs. They did NOT mention the bed bugs or asbestos problems they have until AFTER I was hired.
