    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Viasat (London, England) in Sep 2022

    Interview

    Following submission of my application I was contacted by a Senior Talent Acquisition Partner to have an initial 30 minute phone interview. I was asked what is knew about Viasat, why I wanted the role and what would make me a good candidate for the role.

    Following this I had a video call interview with the Hiring Manager and a member of the team the role was with.

    The interview was well run and a positive experience. A good range of questions were asked and helpful and honest answers provided to my questions.

    Communication throughout the process was timely and helpful.
