    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    A phone interview which went very well. The interviewer wanted to have a face to face interview. Never heard from them after 4-5 weeks. I tried to follow up with the company but never received any responses from HR. I found the experience was very unprofessional.

    Senior Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sarasota, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at L-3 Communications (Sarasota, FL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and got invited to a phone screen within a week or so.
    At the time, I held a very similar position; therefore, the interviewer's question were all in the form of, Have you done this or that...etc...and I answered them expertly. The interviewer then asked me about how long of a lead time will I require should I be invited to a site interview. I told him, about a week. I thought the phone screen went very well!

    No word for about 2 weeks, since the phone screen. Then, I emailed the interviewer, asking if I'm still being considered for the position. No response. It's been 5 weeks since.

    My interviewer told me he's also the hiring the manager for the position I applied for.

    I was THE ideal candidate for said position, but I can't expect to be the only such applicant.
    What I expected from L3, however, was a little more professionalism in the process than I unfortunately received.

    Interviewed on-campus first with one manager. Was invited later in semester for a "Blitz Day" which is the same thing as an on-site interview with a tour of the facility. Had 3 different interviews with 3 different groups that were interested in me. The software engineering group had 2 people that asked me multiple questions.
