    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    The process took about three weeks. Week one consisted of an email invitation for a phone interview which occurred during week 2, and then a face-to-face interview the third week.

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute.

    Interview

    I spoke on the phone with several employees and management, then did a 1 hour technical review. I freaked out and interpreted the task wrongly as something far more difficult and only realized it 5 minutes before the interviewer called back. I had a half finished program to answer a far more challenging question than was actually asked of me, but I walked through it with the interviewer and he took the time to walk through it with me and saw that I was at least on the right track, then discussed the actual simpler problem. By a textbook reading, it could be considered a failure, but instead he wanted to evaluate me on the criteria that were meaningful to the job, and I got the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a tree data structure in several states, and asked to determine what the data structure was, and to implement it with the requisite operations.   Answer Question

    Senior Research Engine Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Atlanta, GA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Submit resume/references/transcripts, however, to my knowledge, mgmt didn't follow up with any of my references (despite providing seven). Management said verbally they'd hire me as Senior Research Engineer at my proposed salary, or at least seemed to respond positively. After 1 month of silence, I called HR who informed me my requisition was on-hold. After asking mgmt, I was told they were not ready to hire direct and to continue contract. 4 months later, I was told I will never be brought on direct, despite mgmt having me submit all required paperwork. To my knowledge, mgmt didn't ask for reviews from coworkers or call my references.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (San Diego, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Did two phone interviews, one conference call with senior tech lead and hiring manager. Very pleasant conversation and positive experience! Started with two phone interviews with the recruiter and then progressed to conference call with the hiring manager and tech lead in the field office I would be working at. It would have progressed to a in person interview after that.

    Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Smyrna, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Smyrna, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a hiring manager via email to set up a phone screening that would last about 15 minutes. It was a generally good conversation, just brushed on my resume and why I enjoyed engineering. I think it was more of a behavioral/personality fit kind of thing. I was brought in for a full day of interviews with the hiring manager, his team, and people/groups of other divisions. I gave a 45 minute presentation in the middle of the day, followed by a lunch with 4 other team members. Everyone was nice, talked about their work, and answered my questions.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Super Basic, asked me about my interests and my technical skills. As with any job they heavily based their decision off experience. They didn't dwell much on course work or grades. They prefer Computer Science/Engineering or related majors. They did not ask very technical questions.

    They seemed interested but they never followed up with me which i found annoying.
