I interviewed at Mercury Systems

Interview

The interviews were one on one talking with the senior manager, the engineer I was working under, and another engineer. I enjoyed this format, it felt more like a conversation and less like an interrogation.

Interview Questions
  • The manager would ask more personal questions while the engineers asked more technical questions.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mercury Systems in May 2022

Interview

The interview process was very straightforward and moved along quickly. I had a 30-40 min phone screen with the leader coordinating the hire process. I was invited to come on campus and participate in four back to back interviews with various team members. All conversations went very well and I was feeling pretty confident about the entire process. So much so that I felt the need to inform a competitor that I was in the final round of interviews with Mercury. After not hearing from the recruiter I reached out after a week and was told to essentially wait an additional 8-10 business days as other interviews progressed. On day 10 I was informed that the roles was being changed to focus on something very different from the original posting. Not upset, I understand these things happen but based on my conversations with the team members it definitely sounds like leaders are not listening to the needs of the team. Was a great learning experience for me overall on the dynamics of who is influencing the decision making.
