    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intelsat.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easily. They have a list of prepared questions they ask all candidates and then score you for each one. I was asked 6 questions. Only one was technical in nature. The rest asked about my experience, how quickly I learned, and obstacles I've overcome. They were all typical interview questions.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intelsat in September 2015.

    Interview

    Approx. one hour, five scenario-based questions assessing general SATCOM knowledge and ability to sell one's own personal experience and qualification. Also asked for 'elevator pitch' and asked how my skillset and experience would be beneficial to the company. In general the attitude was relatively light, as both interviewers were veterans (as am I) so there was common ground to break the ice.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: Describe in detail a technical problem you encountered and the steps you took to resolve it.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intelsat (Dayton, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I got a call from Intelsat HR people asking me to set a date and time for the interview.On the interview day, the Test Engineers in Intelsat gave me a call and suddenly asked me to do a video interview which I'm not ready at that time. Interview questions were easy but it was a little difficult to understand and follow them. I believe my responses were positive because It was a behavioral interview with one or two technical questions.

    Principal Corporate Strategy Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intelsat (McLean, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    first round was an HR screening that went for half an hour. The interviewer was very engaged. Standard HR questions, including salary and reasons for the transition as well as experience related to the position. Second interview with hiring managers focused more on behavioral aspects such as: what would you do in case of a disagreement on strategy, etc, with some industry related and technical questions that were rather high level and fair. Third round was just a formality to get to know the head of the department.
