    Pros

    Good remuneration, interesting and large-scale projects, great team, well established and functional processes, and good flexible working policy.

    Cons

    Typically outdated software engineering practices (slow-paced, heavily documentation-oriented & non-agile), which more reflects the way the defence customer works than the company's own engineering governance.

    Logistics Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at BAE Systems UK (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I started as a temporary employee; the job was supposed to last no longer than 2 weeks. The company contacted the employment agency and asked for me to be hired permanently. The original company was Stewart & Stevenson; bought by Armor Holdings in 2004: bought by BAE Systems in 2005. The initial hiring process was very easy. Once inside the company, I only had to interview for the position of the President's secretary; the other promotions were due to education.

    Interview Questions

    • I was sent by an employment agency for a temporary job. I did not have to interview; there were no questions asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was happy to get a job back in 1987 when I took this temporary job; I did not ask any questions regarding salary, vacation, etc.
