    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harris.

    Interview

    Did brief phone screen and was quickly invited for an on-site interview. Interview conducted of the usual three rounds, pretty standard questions.

    However, the interview itself was an awful experience. The three managers I interviewed with were clearly new to the company and didn't appear to be interested in interviewing anybody. There was evidence of a lot of turnover in the department and they didn't even try to mitigate that fact. They gave no indication of the direction that the company or department was going into. Basically it gave me the impression that this would be a miserable place to work. Didn't even give me tour of the place despite spending my entire day trying to get here. I couldn't think of a single reason why I would actually want this job, other than the location.

    Building itself seems like its been lacking basic maintenance for decades. Walls and floors are stained, conference chairs and tables look to be decades old. They claim it's because its a leased building, but really its because they don't care to spend money on decent working conditions.

    The real kicker is when I inquired about their "unlimited vacation" policy. For those who are unaware this is basically a scheme now where companies advertise that you get "unlimited" vacation (...with manager approval...) but you do not get to bank any of those days or carry them over to the next year. They pretty much told me that vacation time requires very high levels of approval, not just your immediate manager. So basically your requests are going to get caught in Outlook for months until they are finally rejected. I directly asked how much vacation time I could expect to use in a given year, and was told that "Well, it's up to your manager and the business schedule, but you should understand that we are busy people." As if there wasn't already enough red flags....

    Ultimately it was a waste of a vacation day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL).

    Interview

    Interview was fair and standard, but the lack of follow up was shocking. Note to Harris: when you spend company dollars to fly in a candidate - who takes three days from their life to see you - you RESPOND, The lack of consideration towards your candidates is shockingly bad and leaves them with the perception that you have a poorly run and classless organization. Happy I stayed where I am.

    Business Process Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harris (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    I went through a phone screen with a recruiter. That went well. A few days later he called again to schedule an onsite interview with 2 panels in Salt Lake City.

    The onsite interview was very well done. Panel 1 was the site director and HR manager. Panel 2 was 2 of the 3 managers that this position would interact with the most.

    They asked tough questions to get a thorough view of my skills and strengths. I feel that the interview went well and that I had good answers and real-world examples for their questions. I felt that I clicked well with all 4 interviewers. After the second panel, one of the interviewers asked if I had more time so he could show me one of the testing areas they have onsite. We had another really good discussion post interview.

    About a week later the recruiter called me again and thanked me for my interest in the position and wondered if I would be available for a phone screen for the position. I was confused, because I had an onsite interview. I asked him if this was a follow-up interview or was perhaps for a different position at the company. He said he would contact the team in Salt Lake to clarify and call me back. 3 days went by without word from the recruiter, so I called him and left a voicemail. For the next week and a half I tried contacting the recruiter every 2 or 3 days by phone and email, but could never get a hold of him. I didn't have contact information for any of the interviewers, so I don't know what happened with the position or my status.

    During a resume critic section at my university, a Harris manager read my resume and asked me for a copy. She took my resume and then passed it on to another manager who called me 4 weeks later for a phone interview. He also invited me to a job fair which was a week away. I went to the job fair and I talked to him for a minute. then, I asked me to come to an info section he would have after the job fair. I did... surprisingly, he went on to interview me after the info section. A month later, I received an onsite interview invitation.

    Interview Questions

    • Because I was a Ph. D student, my interview was very analytical.
      I had a panel of 3 people.
      1- Behavior questions
      2- Technical questions
      3- Solving problems
      I had to derive multiple equations for a very complex vibration system. Solved a vibration problem and plotted the approximated time response.

      Some of the problems were very hard, but I was able to solved them because I was a TA for that class during my graduate school years
