    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Viasat.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely pleasant and only slightly technical since I didn't have much programming experience at the time. Chatted with a current engineer who talked to me about similar projects I had done in my old job, and asked me one technical question about the difference about two programming languages.

    Interview

    Made initial contact at the university career fair. Didn't hear back from them for months, then one day HR sends an email saying a manager is interested and wants to interview me. A week later I talked to the manager who I would be interning under and that was it. A few days later HR called to present the internship offer.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Met at a career fair, got a call back to set up an interview. In person, on campus: Fairly easy interview- implement a linked list. Interviewer liked it when I asked questions about it- i.e. using generics, what methods, singly linked vs. doubly linked, sorted vs unsorted. No hard questions, just basic methods like add and remove.

    Interview Questions

    • Removing from a linked list- forgot to return the removed data.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Viasat in April 2008.

    Interview

    I was able to meet a few recruiters at a university career fair. The reps seemed very nice and professional. They immediately pointed out a few sections of my resume that caught their eye and I was put on the fast track for an interview and eventually an offer.

    The phone interview mainly consisted of just going over my previous academic / work experiences.
