    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at L-3 Communications.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with them at a Career Fair at my school. Applied for interview through school's job board website. Within 2 weeks of the application period being closed I received an e-mail saying I had been selected for an interview on campus. Went to interview and then 2 weeks later was called and e-mailed saying they wanted to bring me down to Gainesville for an on-site interview.

    The company places you in a hotel nearby and requires that you be at the site around 8:00 in the morning. You first speak with someone from HR discussing all of the benefits the company would offer and then they take you to who would be your boss if you started working there. You speak with that person and several other positions throughout the day. Each person walks you through what they do for the company. They each have a copy of your resume and ask you questions about classes and experience that you may have. Interviews are relatively informal but still very professional and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and you may be speaking with 1 or 2 people at a time.

    You spend practically the entire work day there speaking with and walking around the hangars and offices and even eat lunch with a member of the team you would be working with. At the end of the day, you speak with HR again regarding how the day went and wanting to know if you have any other offers or competition. They take about 1-2 weeks after you interview to respond with an offer or rejection e-mail. The e-mail was sort of disappointing because the one I received was a template of a rejection letter and very impersonal.

    Later, you receive a check in the mail as compensation for your travels.

    Interview Questions
    • I received one technical question and it was only because of an experience the employee had had there when they started. Most of the questions were very open ended and mainly focused on asking about experience or previous projects you had worked on as well as a few behavioral questions.   Answer Question
    No Offer
