Advice to Management
Invest more on research and development. Better career path development. Keep up the good work.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saab Group (East Syracuse, NY) in March 2016.
You are not contacted via email at my location. The manager will call you at random for an impromptu screening. If you are deemed acceptable, then they ask you to interview onsite during the following week. The onsite interview consists of three rounds of questions from current project leaders, and includes lunch. Each round lasts between thirty minutes to an hour and does not include very technical questions. All questions seem to stem from your resume.
