    Power Engineer Interview

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about frequency analysis, design and generation and development of parts for projects.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had 1-on-1 technical interviews w/ several (5) team members. Each member had a series of questions and scenarios to review and answer. Then talked with Harris Corp FSO (via phone bridge) and went over process of background check and clearance needed. Finally talked with Technical Manager on other aspects of the role, along with relocation and benefits. After feedback gotten from recruiter, was sent Harris application w/ salary history to fill out. Talk about an absolute nightmare. After FOUR (4) renegotiation letters later, still have not been given a realistic offer.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Showed interest to recruiter at job fair. Got an email about a month later, set up a typical phone interview. Phone interview lasted around an hour. Was asked what I was looking for, what experience I had through work and school. This transitioned into the guy explaining to me what he was working on, what other projects the company has going, and how the company operates. Last part involved technical questions focused around classes I had recently took and a few problems. Liked how the guy handled these, it was apparent he was more interested in how I approached the problem.

    I was then flown down to the Palm Bay campus for an interview, all expenses paid. HR interaction and logistics were smooth. First few hours were procedural stuff/tours. This was followed by three 45 minute interviews and a follow up with department manager. Most of these interview questions were of a nontechnical nature, they mainly seemed focus on gauging interpersonal skills, ability to learn, and ones work ethic.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain synchronization and some methods of achieving it.   Answer Question

    Talent Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a phone screen with a headhunter, then an internal Harris recruiter, then the hiring manager. Next I was asked to do an in-person interview in Florida at the corporate headquarters where I was scheduled to meet with 6 interviewers. I had problems with my travel arrangements and then I was unable to meet with all of the interviewers. Lastly I was promised to be reimbursed for my expenses but that did not happen. I asked for the form twice but never received it. On a positive note, they did welcome me with a gift basket in my hotel room.

    I ended up telling the recruiter I was not interested in the role or the company before any further decisions could be made. The environment at HQ is too stuffy. No flexibility whatsoever.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked mostly about my experience in talent management, compensation, succession planning, and analytics.   Answer Question
