    Embedded Systems Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at United Launch Alliance.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted by a recruiter a few days later to schedule a phone screen and additional application paperwork. Had another phone interview a couple of weeks later, and a technical phone interview a week after that. Everything went great and they flew me to Colorado for an in person interview and a tour of the facility. I had to pay for it up front, but was (eventually) reimbursed - about $800 total! The in-person interview went well, and I was told I would hear a response in a couple of weeks. When that time went by, I tried to contact my recruiter, but could never get a hold of her. After calling for weeks, she contacted me back with no new information. She said she didn't know anything, and in fact said they hand't even made any decisions about the 3 open positions. This went on for a while before I assumed they weren't going to give me an offer and just didn't let me know. It was 3 months to the day I first applied when I received a generic "thanks, but not thanks" email. This process was so slow, and I was not given any feedback as to why I didn't get an offer even though all of the interviews had gone great.
