Interview Questions
  • The role I applied for was Software Engineer, and they only asked me questions pertaining to Systems Engineering. Then were confused that I didn't I have System Engineering experience. They weren't pleasant to talk to either.

30 minute to 1 hour in person panel interview with two chief test engineers. The entire process is scripted. The panel takes turns asking questions down the script until the form is completely filled out. No technical questions. Mostly S.T.A.R. questions with some more traditional “why are you the best candidate “ style questions.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics (San Diego, CA) in Mar 2021

Interview

Typical process, first was with Talent Acquisition. I seem to be a great fit on paper. This was a role for SR. Cad Design. Then I met the hiring manager. From the start he was cocky and not really feeling my resume. Which confused me as I have been and cad design lead in my past and currently manage a team of 20 cad engineers. This manager had a background in FEA (analysis) but recently took on a new role managing a new team. He had a narrow view of the topic. About half way through, I could tell he wasn't very knowledgeable in Cad. But, he new a few "buzz" words. Almost as if he sat in some sales pitches, but no real world experience. Anyway, at the end he told me I would be better off looking else where. Which I agreed. But this is a really rude thing to say to a candidate, as a hiring manager. I would never be so blunt. I feel sorry for whoever joins his team. I also will never apply for GD again as I now know to question their leadership.

Interview Questions
  • What is the purpose of PLM How can you use CAD models for production without drawings Can you model parts with stackup tolerancing in the model

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Lincoln, NE)

Interview

Casual, it was with 3 engineers that I would be working with. I got offered a position before I left the building the same day. I was told what my day-to-day would be like. I was then able to ask any questions. It was very laid back and I didn't feel stressed or pressured at all.

Interview Questions

Actual interview process is okay but they do not get back with you ever. Overall not a good experience at all. I had to keep calling in order to find out my current status, and they were rude.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Huntsville, AL) in Nov 2020

Interview

I applied online and had a "20 minute" phone screening that actually lasted nearly an hour about 2 weeks later. I didn't progress to the next round, but if I had, I would've been brought into the office for an even more technical interview. First, he described the company and position, and then launched into technical questions which I wasn't prepared for. Know your resume! I had things on mine from classes I'd taken years prior and wasn't prepared to answer even rudimentary questions about those topics, so that was my fault

Interview Questions
  • What's the primary difference between C and C++? What's the biggest difference between MongoDB and MySQL? What is the difference between an outer and inner join in MySQL?
  • What is an object in object oriented programming? What is polymorphism, encapsulation, abstraction, and inheritance in OOP?
