    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Space Systems/Loral (Palo Alto, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, then received a call from HR after a couple weeks. I scheduled phone interview with team manager for the next week. One phone interview, followed by multiple email correspondences (the position I was going for required me to send things via email). Didn't get the offer, got referred to a different position by the team manager who interviewed me. Was going to set up an interview with the other team but then the original team said their other candidate dropped it so then got the offer via email after a month or so.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Space Systems/Loral in April 2016.

    Interview

    Had two separate phone interviews, and then was flown out to have a bunch of on-site interviews. They were very honest about the company, both the good and bad, and outlined how they were moving forward. Got to see some satellites in production. A few interviews included some technical questions designed to test both coding and critical thinking skills.

    Engineering Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Space Systems/Loral.

    Interview

    Long day of interviewing. First with HR, then the hiring manager, then the rest of the engineering staff in two separate groups. It equated to four separate interviews back to back, but overall it was fairly relaxed. There were lots of interns being hired for the summer and the interview process definitely varied by engineering group.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions from HR, really just filler questions while the hiring manager walks to meet you at the front desk. General resume/background questions from the engineering staff and one technical question specific to the position I was applying for.   Answer Question
