    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Lafayette, IN (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty interesting interview process, the interviewer began by asking me a question about my resume then went straight into behavioral questions. After a few behavioral questions, I was asked technical questions related to the job I would be doing. The interview was pretty sporadic, jumping all over the place so it was hard to get into a good conversation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Hill AFB, UT (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online on 8/1/2016 and received an email from the talent recruiter to set up a phone interview. Asked a few questions about when I can start and if this salary range was acceptable. Had my phone interview with the Project Manager and two engineers within the group on 8/20/2016. He talked about the position entailed and the future of the group. Questions were behavioral and my background. Nothing technical was asked, was a mixture of whether I was confident I could perform the job and if I had a similar mindset as the group. Very pleasant experience. I would know a decision within 2 weeks. I received an email in about 2 weeks that I was not selected and then another email about 2 weeks later if still wanted the job.

    For a large defense company, it was odd that I received an offer without an on-site visit and there were no funds to cover travel expenses or relocation assistance. However, everyone I had contact with was very nice and understanding of my concerns since I live in California. I had other better prospects and respectfully declined the offer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA.

    Interview

    Met with the engineering manager in Mt. Laurel, NJ. About a 30-40 minute interview. Seemed like they had already made their decision and the interview was a formality to be honest. Was asked about my resume and then the manager just explained the job and tried to sell me on the job, talking about all the cool things they do at BAE.

At the end I was presented with a written test asking basic engineering questions, and I was also asked to model a small component in Solidworks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BAE Systems USA (Sterling Heights, MI (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty intimidating at first, but then became much more laid back. Initially I walked into a room with three screens in front of me with people from across the United States ready to interview me (along with two other engineers in person). They started off with resume questions, and then moved on to what I call the "have you" questions, i.e. have you written a technical report for the military, have you worked on this computer program, have you worked on this 3D modeling program, etc. Finally, they did a get to know you part, asking what you do in your personal life and what you enjoy. All in all it was one of the better interview processes I have had. They were fairly quick with the initial process and gave me a straight forward timeline.
