    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sandia National Laboratories (Livermore, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Began with two very long email questionnaires from a hiring manager asking about my past programming experience. Specific questions also showed up related to the project I was applying for. After those emails, a 90-minute interview with someone working on the project. Questions varied from behavioral to technical, designed to see how well you critically think.

    Interview Questions

    • During the telephone interview. A series of deceptively simple questions such as "Tell me about a time you used Vectors." "When have you used inheritance". The second one really threw me off because it seemed so basic. They want you to have elaborate answers that show that you know more than its definition.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 3 ladies. They had a document of prepared questions that mainly asked about your skills and other behaviors. I enjoyed the interview and it was not a difficult process. The most difficult part is waiting for the background check to be complete (which takes 6-8 weeks).
