Interview

The interview was definitely intense, but doable. They mainly asked about most of the projects that I had put on my resume. Then they asked a few technical questions about engineering fundamentals.

    Very kind interview. They were prompt in reviewing the resume and had an HR rep reach out within a few days. The interview was a mix of formal and informal conversation about my interests and we even talked about Star Trek.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR after applying online. Then I had a very brief 25 minute phone interview with someone on my team. Almost entirely behavioral, not technical at all. I received my offer a few weeks later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SpaceX.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by HR to apply for SpaceX after giving my resume to a recruiter at a career fair.

    Two phone interviews were scheduled.

    Both technical.

    They asked very strange questions but were honest when asked about working for the company.

    The interviews were about a week or two apart from each other.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SpaceX in May 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly simple, just do what you are instructed to do. They will definitely try to figure out how you operate, and what type of worker you are. They are also looking for a specific type of person for a specific type of job, so if you feel you are right for the job, market yourself in a way that demonstrates you ability to do well in the position you are applying for.
