    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute.

    Interview

    The first step of the process involved coding questions I was tasked with before the formal interview. Nothing too bad.
    The second step/formal interview started off chatting about the Research Institute and the work environment and what projects I might have done in the past. Then moved into some technical questions about Java. This should be basic considering they are looking for students with a strong potential to learn, so don't expect anything above a data-structure level class (topics might include encapsulation, polymorphism, breadth-first search, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • A general question regarding returning an ordered list from a tree using BFS.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (Smyrna, GA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxing but had challenging questions. Please do your research on the company before you get in front of a hiring committee. Ask questions when they ask you too and don't be afraid to speak your mind to these people. They are looking for creative thinkers.

    There was no negotiation phase since I am a student. We get a set rate. Other employees such as technicians have to negotiate.
