    Interview

    I applied online for the new grad and a recruiter got back to me after 3 months. First round was a 60 minute technical phone interview. Started with a few questions based on my projects. Rest of the questions were bases on multi-threading, concurrency and deadlocks. There were no coding questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ViaSat (Germantown, MD) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started at college with a couple of technical rounds and I was then invited to interview onsite. One thing I'd like to point out was the people that interviewed me. They were professional and extremely accommodating. They made me feel comfortable throughout the process and that allowed me to get into a comfort zone. This definitely enabled me to look at the interview as a discussion rather than an exam.

    They were very appreciative of my own growth and explained how the company would benefit with me and vice versa. And finally, the people who interviewed me on campus, spoke to me after the interview and gave me actual feedback on where I could improve.

    These factors weighed heavily. Having worked before, I know the value of feeling comfortable with the people you work with and feeling like you belong. I chose viasat over better offers due to this.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were based on string sorting, a few networking questions, OS questions and the rest was on projects implemented and how they were achieved.   2 Answers

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ViaSat (Troy, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Gave my resume to a recruiter at an on campus career fair, spoke briefly about some of my experience, and was scheduled an on campus interview on the spot. The interview consisted of some basic personality questions, followed by some questions about what was on my resume. A lot of time was just spent talking about some of the projects I've worked on at school. The second half of the interview was basic technical questions. I was asked what my strongest programming language was, and all of the questions were for that language. I got an offer two weeks later, which I accepted.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ViaSat (Cal Poly SLO, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Went over my resume, talked about past projects and my involvement. But was mostly technical questions. The interviewer was very helpful though during the questions I got stuck on, very kind about it. It's important to vocalize what you're thinking/doing, they want to converse with you as you answer the questions.
