    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L3 Technologies (Arlington, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    This interview was a telephone interview conducted by three individuals. They were very interested in my experience as a reliability engineer while I was at a previous employer. I proceeded to tell explain to them my responsibilities performing reliability functions on flight simulation systems. I continued to the them my experience using Windchill Quality Solutions software, the standard for reliability calculations, in performing reliability, maintainability, Weibull and FRACAS analysis. They were also interested in my time spent as a technical training instructor and if that position required me to stand in front of a classroom and teach student and put together training material and presenting that material to the class.
    The interview then transitioned into whether or not I have written technical training manual for the operation and maintenance of flight simulation systems. Which I answered, "No, all training materials in my current job are handled by a sub-contractor."
    The asked me about my experience in provisioning and sparing parts. I told them that while I use reliability to identify parts that have low reliability rates, I am used to handing this information to a provisioning person who then, based upon my recommendations concurs/non-concurs with my recommendations.
    The interview then transitioned back to reliability where I was asked if I could perform the same level of calculations using Microsoft Excel instead of using Windchill software, because "buying Windchill just isn't going to happen."

    I was asked if would be opposed to international travel. Which I answered, "Not really."
    Beware any reliability engineers. L-3 Link Simulation will NOT provide the necessary tools, such as Windchill or Reli-Soft, to perform the job. They expect you perform all the functions in Excel.

    Also, they expect this position to be a Reliability Engineer, Technical Writer, Provisioning/Spares Specialist and International Travel Training Instructor.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you perform the same level of reliability function using Microsoft Excel instead of using Windchill software, because buying Windchill just isn't going to happen?   1 Answer

    I was called immediately after applying and an in person interview was setup. I went in for the second interview, a skill test and then nothing. I was told via email that either way they shall call and let me know the outcome ... but apparently that day never came . ( or was it a way for them to show that I was not selected). I would expect a company this big and prestigious company like this to atleast follow up on their emails.
