    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thales.

    Interview

    Very standard interview with the head of Sales. Not difficult. We basically talked about my past experience and why I was interested in the company. The interviewer was very nice. It was a phone interview overseas so it was a bit difficult to hear and understand but overall it went well.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thales.

    Interview

    It used to be that all resumes went directly to the hiring manager who would decide who to interview. Now they are screened by an incompetant HR recruiter. Good luck

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Thales (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a very professional recruiter. Had 3 interviews with 4 different people, everything went well they said they needed approval to hire me and another person after a month of no answer they came back and said budget was not approved for hiring us! Why would you waste so many people time and do not make an offer; that is very unprofessional!!! Horrible experience! I will not recommend this company to anyone!

    Summer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was friendly but not excited about the interview. They were doing interviews all around the day. So maybe he is bored. But overall a good experience.
    HR does not reply to your emails. No information about the decision until I received a rejection email one month after the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    HR was very hands-on and efficient in contacting me to set up interview times and follow-ups. My interview itself was very straightforward. Since I was interning for a summer internship, my interviewer asked about some college classes I had taken/was currently taking and sprinkled in some technical questions related to those classes. He then asked me a few simple coding questions.
