    Electrical Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SPAWAR Systems Center (San Diego, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my school career website that lead me to the official government website. Couple of months passed after that and I forgot about it. Then I was asked for an interview. It was a 30-45 minutes interview with mostly behavioral questions and some resume related questions. The interviewer was really nice and gave me instant feedback on my answers. I heard back about a tentative offer much earlier than I was told to expect. Then I went through the process of security clearance which took about 3 months (this might vary person to person), after that got a formal offer and a start date. This is my first federal position and my experience was very pleasant. The recruiter, HRO and Security Personnel- everyone is pretty prompt and helpful. I also had another job in the private sector as an engineer while I waited for the formal offer to come from SPAWAR.
