Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at SpaceX.

Interview

Called for a phone interview. Was really nervous and hoping for the best but did not go to well. The interviewer was driving during the call and the signal between our phones was really bad. It was really hard for either of us to understand what each other were saying. With some misunderstandings as well it was not a very good experience.

Interview Questions

  • Standard questions about how I overcame a challenge and some review of my resume.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at SpaceX (Hawthorne, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Talked to representatives during University career fair, got a phone interview 4 weeks later with a manager. Interview was simple, talk about your resume and experience, plus some technical questions. Got a 2nd phone interview with another engineer in the same department. Interview for ~ 1 hr, very technical interview, talked mostly about what was on my resume and went on detail about it. Be ready to know in-depth knowledge of what's on your resume and link it to how it will be useful at SpaceX. On other words, know what you are talking about, no hand-waving.
