Software Engineer II Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in October 2015.

Interview

The entire interview process was a very enjoyable experience. They take care of all expenses up front including a rental car, except for meals (which you can get reimbursed). You get to stay at an oceanfront hotel, with an amazing view and beach shoreline.

The only snafu for me was that I did not receive the online employment application link via email, and had to complete it last minute after asking my HR contact. It is kind of my fault for not noticing until the day before the interview.

I stayed at the company for about 6 hours, interviewing with ~6 different people. We had lunch with current employees in the work place ground-floor restaurant. We also went on tours of the company. The interviews were not technically rigorous, and more like skills review and behavioral questions.

If not for another offer, I think I would have really enjoyed working there. They offered a competitive salary, and have good work schedules (9/80 (3-day weekends every other week) + vacation time). I also think I would have enjoyed working with the people there. There were clearly smart people there who also enjoyed their work. I interviewed with various people who have been to at the company from a few years to decades.

I really liked the management style as well. You basically get to change what you are working on by consulting with the engineering manager. You can thus guide your development of skills and expertise. They seem to have a genuine interest in meeting the employee's interests and encouraging innovation.

Overall, seems like a great company to work for.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    They barely care about technical skill at all. They mostly care about soft-skills like ability to work in a team. Don't get me wrong, these are important skills, but the amount they focus on these soft-skills in the interview process is ridiculous. They barely ask any technical questions at all, and even if you get some blatantly wrong they will still hire you because they are so short staffed.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harris (Melbourne, FL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    You get 4 or 5 interviewers one at a time for about 45 minutes each. You get a lunch break. Whatever language you have on your resume, know some technical questions about it. Also, for the behavioral questions, try to use the STAR method to answer them. Some whiteboard coding questions may be asked, but nothing too hard. Be able to talk about your past internships and past school projects.
