Avionics Technician Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Atomics (New York, NY) in September 2016.

Interview

I applied and the next day, I received an e-mail from an HR specialist. I did call him and we talked about the position and he asked if I was interested for the position. I said yes. After a week, I received an e-mail from another HR specialist, who then became my go-to person for the whole process. I received an interview from two top managers and the interview lasted less than an hour, after taking a written assessment. I then received an e-mail at the end of that interview week, stating that the company wants to pursue the hiring process. I then received e-mails for background investigation and was told to provide references. After that phase of the process was done, I received another e-mail from HR, stating that everything went well and my offer letter would be generated. The whole process took two months.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Atomics (Palmdale, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    There were a few steps to go through but overall it was very painless.
         1. They called to setup a phone interview.
         2. Phone Interview (Very basic questions ie. tell me about yourself, your experience, rate your skill level).
         3. Online Skills Test (They give you a week or so to complete it.. 2 part test with theory, safety, general math and competency questions ie. which way does the slash go in a web address? This way // or that way \\)
         4. Fly you out to the company (Very nice all expenses paid trip)
         5. Onsite test (Many if not all of the questions come from the previous online test, so pay attention and study)
         6. Practical Exercise (Install a piece of equipment onto a test bench,. Don't sit anything down! FOD! Test it. Write down your results.)
         7. 2 on 1 interview (This is VERY long (1hr+) and the interviewers play off each other, they have a script, and EVERY question starts with "Tell me about a time..." so have plenty of stories available. Also, they asked me to describe something very difficult in great detail. I tend to think things are only difficult if you let them be, bit a good answer. This was my last question, and the first time it had ever been asked it and I flubbed it.)

    The company seemed VERY laid back, not a suit, a tie, or a button down in the whole place. I wore a suit and felt very out of place. I'm not sure if business casual is right answer but maybe this a better question to ask your recruiter.

    I wish you well, and happy interviewing.
