    Interview

    The interview consisted of a panel of six departmental managers. Despite being grilled by six people at one time, the interview was fairly casual and not terribly intimidating. Each person took turns asking questions. Most of the questions dealt with workplace situations (what would you do if this happened, and how would you resolve it?). There were a series of standard questions that were mandatory for DOD industry. Mostly for background checks, citizenship, etc.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview

    There were 2 interviews. The first was with 3 managers looking for an engineer and it felt kinda like the third degree. There were a lot of questions regarding my experience with different subjects, situations and computer programs and even questions about me personally. I didn't expect a second interview, but the second was a lot more relaxed. It was with the people I would be working with if offered the job. It was mainly to see if our personalities would clash.
