Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SpaceX (Hawthorne, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

It was very smooth. They asked me questions regarding major projects I have done. Mainly asked me questions to see if I can efficiently answer said questions effectively. Then went into some simple beam problems.

    Interview

    Two interviews with current engineers, both asked technical and non-technical questions. Technical questions were about basic structural engineering mostly. Non-technical were standard behavioral questions. Answered technical questions correctly, but denied position due to "lack of experience". This was for their space suit team.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SpaceX.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward, I received a screening call from HR first and then later followed up with a senior manager who went through a generic resume screening process with me. I'm not sure why my process was so straightforward and simple, but this was also for a Fall Internship opportunity.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SpaceX in August 2011.

    Interview

    The higher ups in McGregor seemed really interested in the interview process and were a great deal of help. The actual departmental managers seemed like you were just another intern and half listening usually 30 minutes late - not to good over the phone either, which pretty much summed up the rest of the internship experience. The interview process consisted of 3 phone screens not technical at all, I think mostly a cultural screen which is pretty important for the McGregor site lol.

    Interview Questions

    • Vague, uninspired typical interview questions -what kind of project experience do you have, do you know what SpaceX does, extracurricular activities, hands on experience, etc.   Answer Question
