    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Space Systems/Loral.

    Interview

    Few phone screens with HR, then on-site. on-site consisted of 4-5 one-on-one interviews with various engineers and managers.

    The interviews were pretty easy, just answering some questions about your resume and basic technical questions on rocket propulsion related stuff.
