    Application

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

    Interview

    I was reached out to by HR to apply for SpaceX after giving my resume to a recruiter at a career fair.

    Two phone interviews were scheduled.

    Both technical.

    They asked very strange questions but were honest when asked about working for the company.

    The interviews were about a week or two apart from each other.

    Interview Questions

    • If you had to go up a really tall building and then from the top of the building get over to the rooftop of another equally tall building and back down that new building (and you have to carry all of your equipment with you) what would you bring and what would the setup look like?   Answer Question
