    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the company directly. Spoke with their recruiter who scheduled an interview with the project lead. Spoke with him by phone for approximately 30-45 minutes. A couple weeks went by and they contacted me to schedule an in person interview. They arranged my flight, hotel, and transportation. I arrived for a day of interviews with 5 or 6 software engineers (separately), followed by a brief meeting with HR and then the project lead (whom I initially spoke with by phone). They also provided lunch at their cafeteria (pretty good). The following week they contacted me to make a verbal offer.

    Interview Questions

    • The two most difficult questions I had were were with regards to Multi-threading and memory management/garbage collection. Both are areas I have not had many opportunities to explore.   1 Answer

    Salary and relocation were negotiated. Know what salary range you are expecting, and benefits. Be honest about your needs and willing to talk with them.

    Interview

    Started off with a simple phone interview to get a sense of my technical background. We really just explored the various parts of my resume in detail so that they could get a better sense of my background.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I attended a career fair at my school and my resume was forwarded to the different departments in the company. I received an email about doing a phone screening a couple months later which led to a follow up interview at the headquarters in Melbourne FL. The interview lasted from about 8:00 to 3:30 with 5 different staff members. The questions were straight forward and about what I expected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harris in May 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview, followed by a 1:1 interview with a collection of different people within the engineering department. An excellent company with excellent beenefits, the offer was declined because of my wife's employment status, but, suffice to say, it would have been a good move. This seems like a good company to work for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I went to the university's career fair and spoke to some people from Harris. They seemed like good people but I don't remember specifically applying with them. I don't remember getting a phone interview so they must have called me directly to Melbourne. They were very polite and the schedule was very flexible. On the before day of the interview, they put me in a nice suite. The actual interview was done by several people (4+) sequentially in 45 minute blocks (like Google). The questions they asked were mostly personality-based questions and previous experience questions (unlike Google). I have the feeling they care a lot more about the type of person they are going to work with rather than how technical they are. In any case, it was a long day but the offer was extended within the week, which means they worked fast.
