    Software Engineer IV Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lynchburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AREVA (Lynchburg, VA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process was actually quite pleasant. I was expecting a more challenging interview process with the usual irrelevant interview questions. Management seemed to know what type of engineer they needed and filtered candidates appropriately. The biggest challenge is reaching Lynchburg. Flight cancellations to/from Lynchburg are quite frequent. Be prepared for the unexpected when planning travel.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Corporate policies limit negotiations. Expect salaries you'll find posted on this site. Moving expenses were covered as well as paid trip to find housing.
