I applied online. I interviewed at General Atomics

Interview

Extremely Straightforward and concise. All contact with HR was fantastic. My main point of contact was my mentor. They did ghost me for about a month while they were "talking to higher ups" about having me join the group. But after some patience, and following up multiple times, they did finally get back to me.

Interview

They asked questions about my school projects and my classes. The more technical part was just basic stuff. They did ask me about how to convert certain binary numbers, which I struggled with. But other than that it was a relatively basic interview with good questions.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at General Atomics

Interview

I was cautious to interview with GA when contacted by an agency because they don't necessarily have the best reputation here in San Diego. Unfortunately, GA lived up to that reputation during this process. I spent about 4-5 hours interviewing over 2 rounds with several different leaders. Some were friendly and some were down right unfriendly. Worst part was there was never any follow up whatsoever. No email, no phone call, no text after the interview. Very, very unprofessional.

Interview Questions
  • They interviewers did most of the talking. I actually said very little over the course of the interview process.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Atomics (New York, NY) in Apr 2022

Interview

Everything progressed quickly from two phone interviews to a full panel inperson. They mostly focused what was on my resume. I demonstrated knowledge of equipment in their lab, and got a tour of the engineering department for the first hour and a half. The first two people kept telling me what a great place this is to work. The last hour and a half was with a team of engineers. They mostly focused on what my resume listed, and had me answer questions, and drawing examples on the white board. I know I got most of the questions correct. I asked for honest feed back and they only had compliments to give me. I had taken a couple days of work off to make time for these interviews. I left feeling like I got the job. The following week I got an automated email saying they would not hire me. I asked for feedback and was only told to keep applying for other positions. This position is still open, and I have not been contacted about any other openings since. I know I am qualified to work here, but it is so hard to get in this company. I have heard it is not what you know, but who you know that gets you a job here.I wish they would have been honest and not wasted my time. This company has a bad reputation for being overly picky, getting your hopes up, and nepotism. If you don't have family or friends there, don't bother to apply.

Negative Experience
Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Atomics (San Diego, CA) in Apr 2022

Interview

I was contacted via a recruiter and submitted information. Received a request for a phone interview, followed by a 5-hour in-person interview. I thought the entire process was straightforward. HR was indeed difficult to work with, but I did receive quick notice within 2-3 days that I was not offered the position. The reason: I wasn't proficient in a specific code language (which was neither asked during the interview, nor was it listed on my resume). Disappointed to go through this process and dedicate time and resources for what HR / Hiring Team should have identified right away.
