    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harris.

    Interview

    Brief informal interview, we had a conversation about what Harris does with cyber security and my own personal research. I was extremely tired during the interview and it was not a job I was actively pursuing. I got lucky given the academic program I was in and used this a chance to practice but I didn’t even receive a technical question.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter at the Georgia Tech career fair. He quickly set me up with an interview the next morning. That one went well so they decided to give me an on site interview 2 weeks later. The on site interview was an all day thing, from 8 to 3. I had to give a presentation on one of my old projects and after that the panel asked me a whole bunch of technical questions. Wasn't too bad. Since this was a power engineering position, you can be sure they will ask about bucks, boosts, maybe LDOs.

    Interview Questions

    • Draw a Buck and Boost converter, tell me how it works.   Answer Question
    • Draw a non inverting and inverting amplifier.   Answer Question
    • Draw a block diagram control loop and derive its transfer function.   Answer Question

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harris (North Amityville, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted about 2 weeks after I applied online for an in-person, 3-hour interview with 4 high-level engineers (i.e. Functional Engineer, Chief Engineer, Managers) that I would be reporting to. Each individual interview was supposed to be back-to-back and 30 mins long, however, two had semi-conflicting meetings that cut their interview short and the other two made up for the time by having longer interviews.

    The interviewers mostly spoke about what the job would entail and what they're looking for in a candidate. The questions were standard "tell me about this experience on your resume", "tell me about the most difficult course you took", "how would you contribute to Harris" and one technical question.

    Other than the fact that the interview was 3-hours long with no breaks (which made it kind of exhausting) I had a great time learning about what these engineers had done and what I would be expected to contribute if i got the job.

    I received an offer about 3 and a half weeks after the in person interview.

    Interview Questions
