    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems (Saint Cloud, MN) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met them at a job fair at my college campus. After talking to a representative, I was given a time to interview the following day (reserved room on campus). Panel included two managers, with a new manager-converted engineer.

    College interview, so they requested a transcript of my coursework. They had one copy of my resume, but I was able to give additional copies the day of, so each panel member could have a copy.

    Only one interview, no phone screening. Offer was extended a few weeks later. I found myself asking more questions after the offer was extended, as it seemed to happen faster than I anticipated.

    Interview

    Invited to a phone screen in December 2016, then was asked to a skype interview in January 2017. Very accommodating in terms of scheduling. The interviews were laid back and the interviewer seemed genuinely interested in learning more about me and my qualifications/experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems (Pittsfield, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    ***I am reviewing the on-site interview process.

    All in all, it was a pleasant interview. I sat down with three FTE's; two managers and one engineer. They were very kind to me and very personal. They asked me a bunch of questions about my resume, which they had and picked apart each line basically. They also asked me a few technical questions that were fairly easy. While my interview, the other candidates had the ability to talk to FTE's about their job and living conditions (they split us up into two groups). After the two interview sessions for both groups were completed, we joined together and went on a tour of the building which was fantastic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems (McLeansville, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone interview 2 weeks later followed by an in person interview the next week. The in person interview was a day long process where we toured the building and received info sessions about the company and position. The interview portion was intentionally very relaxed and consisted on 3 1-on-1 interviews. The questions asked were mostly about my resume and plans for my future. Only one of the three interviewers asked me any technical questions and they were basic concepts for my background.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Mission Systems.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted not long after to setup a preliminary interview - I was told there would be no technical questions yet.

    The preliminary went well, typical questions but the proof of US citizenship with a clean record was clearly of importance, from the questions asked about it. The interview went quickly and so I was asked a couple technical questions that I stumbled through out of surprise.

    I wasn't close enough to drive for an in-person interview so my next (and last) interview was a Skype video call with 3 other people working there. They asked lots of technical questions (almost nothing but) for maybe an hour or so. Nearly all questions they asked were listed in other reviews, but a couple were about self-reflection ("Rate your skill level in Java from 1-10. [example: 7] Why 7? What makes you better than a 6? What does it take to become an 8? Why aren't you an 8?"). About a week later I got an offer.
