    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Atomics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Atomics (Poway, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online, call back within a week by HR rep for setting up phone interview the following day with hiring manager and 2 others via 30 minute conference call. HR scheduled onsite interview about 2 weeks after phone. Requires a background check and at least 3 recommendations via web tool-must be previous coworkers, managers, or professors.
    Onsite had hiring manager, HR rep, and 5 other employees from the Strategic Sourcing group. 1 hour interview, about 20 questions that were prepared and round table questions. Questions were both technical and behavioral- relating to supplier management, coworker interactions, explain how you would handle X, what type of processes are involved in building X, etc.
    After interview- HR called one time and said they needed a week, called back and said they were interested and would need a few weeks to prepare the offer. Overall process took 3 months to get an offer from submitting for role and obtaining offer letter. Great on boarding so far!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Atomics (Poway, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    After applying, the entire process consisted of a phone interview, followed by a meeting with HR , in-person interview with a panel of 3 software engineers, and coding assessment. The phone interview just asked simple logical, coding, and OOP questions as well as any questions I had about the company. I got called a week later to set up an in-person interview. HR just talked to me about benefits the company offers. The panel interview afterwards consisted of the majority of questions being about my projects, how I handled certain situations, my interests relative to the company, the programming languages I liked the most, etc. Gave plenty of room to ask them questions. The hour with the panel really felt more of a conversation, and with this being my first interview ever, I felt really comfortable talking to them. Afterwards, there was a one hour coding assessment; not difficult if you understand what the problem is asking you to do. I spent the first half hour doing it the wrong way; the second half hour I figured out what I had to actually do and finished it on time. After the in-person interview, I was called back within 4 days at which point they extended a job offer to me.

    Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at General Atomics (San Diego, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Email/phone call from HR asking to schedule a phone interview. The interview is about 30min; the first 2/3 is questions about your resume (past experience, languages, projects), the last third is their standard technical screen which you can find on Glassdoor. Assuming you pass the phone interview, you're brought on-site. The on-site starts with a quick information session with an HR rep that's mostly just about the company and their benefits, then an hour long interview with a panel of 3 engineers, then an hour-long coding session in C. The panel interview was mostly about past projects you've done - be prepared to give specific answers to how you contributed and problems you faced. The coding problem had to do with parsing an array of unsigned chars and following some specific logic depending on the values you saw. Total time between first applying online to getting an answer after the on-site was about 6 weeks.
