    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carlsbad, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Viasat (Carlsbad, CA) in August 2020.

    Interview

    It was a great experience. I’m a more senior candidate and have been through a lot of other interviews and companies over the years. Viasat has a great process and people. As with any recruiting - be patient. There are tons of internal automated workflows that candidates don’t see and it can feel like a black hole of no information or updates.

    My initial interviews were in Jan 2020 - right before COVID hit. It was an in person panel interview. Since I was referred by a current employee - that counted as my phone screen. It was about four hours long and I spent about an hour with each of the 4 interviewers.

    Each was a fun conversation that spanned experience to I think generally assessing my personality for a git into the company culture.

    After that - everything came to a halt due to COVID. I totally understood and told them that if things change in the future to reach to me. The did in July 2020.

    They wanted to bring me in now that they have a better handle on how COVID will affect their business. I had salary discussions with Recruiting and went through the negotiations process. I was extended an offer and accepted.

    Everything is very clear and easily done remotely. I appreciate everyone involved in the process to interview me.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Duluth, GA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Viasat (Duluth, GA) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Found the job online and applied. Soon after a HR recruiter with Viasat reached out and we set up a pre-screen. Basic questions were asked and I learned more about the role and company.

    It went well, and was expecting to get to the first-round interview. However, the recruiter called me to let me know I didn't meet the years of experience qualifications since it's an entry-level role.

    It was nice that they actually called me rather than just sending the generic email or ghosting. Seemed like they really did care even though I was in a very early stage of the process.

    Seemed like a great place to work and overall was a good experience. Only problem is the Georgia location is in Duluth, and not even. It's on the outskirts of Duluth in the middle of nowhere. So that was my only issue if I had moved forward in the process.
