    Electric Propulsion Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Champaign, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at The Aerospace Corporation (Champaign, IL) in May 2017.


    I was set up for a 20 min behavior interview with my hiring manager. But that interview turned into a technical interview and lasted for almost an hour. During the interview, my hiring manager asked me about my research and one of my class called electric propulsion. The questions were fairly difficult, but the manager said it was okay if I did not know. I got the offer two days after my interview.
