    Finance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Lynchburg, VA).

    Interview

    I applied directly to the company website and it took a while to hear back from someone with regards to the application. When I did hear back from someone, it wasn't about a pending application, but I was happy to find I could network with him through mutual friends. We hit it off and he was pretty excited about bringing me in for an interview. He raved about how impressed he was with my resume. We ended up having a phone conversation and everything had gone very well for me, up to that point. Unfortunately, the experience took a turn.

    After this conversation the process definitely slowed down. It turned out that this individual had found my resume on the company's network, and never even had a requisition in place to interview me, much less invite me to campus. We exchanged emails a few times before the requisition was available for me to apply to on their website. This hiring manager acknowledged that the hiring role which he had had been stripped from him and new person was reviewing applicants - a newly hired CFO.

    When I applied for this requisition, once it was available, the hiring manager also suggested I apply to any other positions available. I thought this was a thoughtful suggestion on his part. As it appears to have turned out, he seemed to have made the suggestion in order to keep me from focusing on his open position. I was later contacted by HR for the other position I had applied for, very similar to the other position but a different office.

    I was brought in for an interview, and as I was a candidate from out of town, they offered me a hotel room to stay in. This offer, as it turns out, was probably the best experience I had with Harris. On the way to my interview, I bought a coffee from a local chain and got to the office with plenty of time to spare. I was scheduled to interview with five people including a new CFO at the Lynchburg office. As with normal interview experiences, I would expect to be offered some coffee or water or both, especially considering I would be with them the entirety of the morning - over four hours. However, I was not offered anything by the interviewers.

    I was scheduled to meet with the CFO in the middle of the morning, but I guess the schedule was a little mixed up or the CFO had not recognized day light savings, because he thought the other interviewer had run over. To begin the interview he commented that he was confused by my resume (if you remember the previous hiring manager loved my resume). When all was said and done, I was able to get through the interview, having met with one less person than intended because the CFO took over the interview - which can be expected. I have a feeling the same occurred with the original position I applied for when contacted by the original hiring manager.

    Overall, my experience was sour. I wanted to work for the company, but now that I look back, I feel like I was not even in the running for a position and rather brought in after a decision had been made on who to hire.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Harris.

    Interview

    Non Technical questions, mostly character questions. The interview was less about your skills, and more about how you would fit in with the culture. This is most likely different for a full time position.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was good, they did have quite a lot of people who were knowledgeable and interesting. I talked to security and HR as well as the departments. I unfortunately got the feeling that they did not have any engineers over the age of 35.... The people that interviewed me were all younger than I was and when It came to talking to HR, the guy gave me a 20 minute speech on why and how they came up with people's salary.
    In my experience, they only do this when they are planning on underpaying extensively, and based upon what people said and pervious employees, yes.
