Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MITRE (Daytona Beach, FL) in February 2016.

Interview

The interviewers start off by asking general questions about you:
-Degree program
-Major project that you may be involved in
-Career goals

Once those topics are covered they begin going to the specific technical questions.
-Walking thru a though process
-How to problem solve
-etc

After the technical questions, they later ask for your desired job and try to match you with one.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MITRE in December 2015.

    Interview

    Connected with an employee at my school's career fair that led to a basic phone screen that involved the interviewer describing the opportunity they though I fit and asked me why I thought I would be a good fit for it. Then I had an on-site interview. I was applying for a software development role but most of the question involved overall system design, describing my projects and what my aspirations were. There was a whiteboard coding session which was mainly about verifying I could code and understood big-O notation. The day ended with a 15 minute presentation on a topic of my choice.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MITRE.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and got a call back pretty quickly for a phone screening. I had just one interview, but my situation was unique. After the interview, there is a separate application for a employment (if I recall correctly). They said that they had "expressed interest" in extending an offer. The application is also used to determine your salary.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They make the offer based on your salary and I did not negotiate (not sure if I could have negotiated much).

    Interview

    Very friendly, not terribly technical, but clear they want solid talent. Taken into a room with several managers--some from the hiring department, others from other departments of interest, where we had a pretty cordial discussion of experience, abilities, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at MITRE.

    Interview

    My school had a connection with MITRE and I sent my resume. After 2 months I was emailed to schedule an interview with a software engineer. The questions that he asked, I did not answer too well. I was not expecting his definitions and compare/contrast questions about programming on the first interview. I thought I failed.
    I was called a week later to schedule an interview with 6 people in a row at the MITRE campus. This was scary, but the actual interview was rather repetitive. I told repeated my story about myself several times and did not have much of a test of my skills. Where I did show my skills, I just tried my best to explain my thinking and I did not finish any of their questions in the time limit.

    Object oriented Programming stuff is Important to know! definitions!

    Negotiation

    During my 6 interviews, in speaking with HR, I was asked how much I wanted to be paid. I was quite taken aback but I noted the hourly wages that I saw here on glassdoor ($18) and I got that.
