    Interview

    Was interviewed by an HR dept. employee and the electrical engineering manager. Was worried that questions might be a bit technical. However, most of the questions were non-technical asking about education, courses taken, company itself, etc. The most difficult question was- what are your hobbies? The hard part was relating a particular hobby to the position. Overall, it was a relaxing interview.

    Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at L-3 Wescam (Burlington, ON (Canada)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Was looking to switch gears in my career when I applied online through their careers website. Was contacted by an HR representative by email to ask for a phone interview. The phone interview was a quick and simple overview of general qualifications and experience. Led to a request for face-to-face interview the following week with their Technical Lead for the Designer position.

    Interview with the Technical Lead was disappointing. He seemed to be quite analytical, without a sense of humor. I could not honestly see myself working for this person. He asked basic questions probing to see if I understood the position and whether my background experience was sufficient. Before the interview I was excited about possibly working for L3. Afterwards, I was asking myself whether I really wanted to work there anymore. Luckily I was not offered the position and therefore did not have to decline.

    The facilities seemed to be dated. The work environment in the area I was taken was old fabric-covered cubicles with old-school furnishings. The people there take security seriously (a good thing). I was not given a tour of the facility as I was with other companies.

    Overall, it was a good practice interview for me not having interviewed for over 10 years.
