Application

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (Lexington, MA) in Apr 2021

Interview

LONG hiring process. - (1 month after applying) 1 hour phone interview with group leaders discussing the company and the role. - (2 weeks later) One-on-one interviews (30 min each) totaling 4-5 hours with group members to discuss projects and trying to find fit followed by a presentation on my previous research. Ghosted for months on end despite reaching out to the administrator multiple times. Application was declined after months. ADVICE TO MANAGEMENT: Seriously expedite the hiring process as there are not many people willing to wait months on end (sometime without salary) on a decision only to be ghosted months later.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Tell us about your thesis project.

I interviewed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory

Interview

Expected to be asked about my technical background in relation to the position, but instead was only asked systems and project management-related questions. I felt like I didn't have any opportunity to showcase why I'd make a good fit and why I was interested in GNC.

Interview Questions
  • Say you were in a group of 30 people just starting out on a project. How would your team go about deciding the first set of tasks for the new project?
