    Associate Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Durham, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process included both a phone interview and an in-person interview. I was able to meet with numerous individuals from different departments of the company which provided great insight into the overall position I was applying for. Be prepared to spend the majority of a morning/afternoon with their team, but it will be well worth it as you will gain more information than from most other interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Centennial, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Centennial, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and had the usual phone screen. A few days later I was scheduled for a phone interview with 2 software engineers, reasonably technical. I was given a coding project and asked to complete it for the in-person interview. Maybe a week after that I was in CO for the in-person.

    I really liked the environment and building, seems like a really cool place to work and their benefits 401k in particular were pretty good. While I appreciate how casual the environment seemed it was awkward having an interview in a suit and tie while the interviewers wore tee shirts and jeans. Generally they were pretty nice, we went over my code project and they seemed dismayed that the project took me longer to complete than their estimates. While we went over my code on a projector they kept asking me if there were better ways to do what I did and having me make changes. The part that was really frustrating was, I felt as though they expected me to read their minds and they would ask me questions then answer them for me before I really had a chance to think about what they were asking. All things considered I guess I just wasn't suited for them.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation.

    Interview

    Three interviews....First one was a one on one phone interview. Second was a follow up. The last one being with the manager and team. Very easy going interview with your average interview questions. Had an offer extended two days later. The only weird part was the interview from HR during the main interview. He started asking me questions about the job and didn't understand my answers.

    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Sacramento, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The Interview was 4 hours long and I interviewed with 5 different employees. I was asked basic questions but mostly in digital design. This was probably a factor why I did not get hired because I refreshed in advance communication systems and not digital design. The Interview helped me understand what employees are looking for. However, SNC was looking more for a software or firmware engineer not a hardware engineer.

    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sparks, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Sparks, NV) in April 2008.

    Interview

    The company will post jobs early and keep them open until the position is filled, sometimes keeping the posting open after, just to get a pool of candidates for the next job. You are allowed to repost your resume and update on their site, I highly reccomend updating it and re applying for different jobs. The company will change and modify a position to fit the right candidate.
