    Build Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hawthorne, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SpaceX (Hawthorne, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The most intense engineering interview in my experience. Onsite, very supportive in terms of travel to interview, housing, and transportation. Onsite interview is all day, starting with a presentation by you about an engineering project you are proud of. This is followed by 8 interviews with different staff in your potential team and finally the VP of the subsystem or stage you are applying for (IE structures, Dragon, etc)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SpaceX in August 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and was offered an interview. The first interview was with a recruiter who basically just ran through your resume. A few days later I had a second interview with an engineering lead, which was more difficult. They mainly asked about manufacturing experience and how I would go about deciding how to manufacture designs. They also asked me several engineering problem solving questions.
