    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was friendly but not excited about the interview. They were doing interviews all around the day. So maybe he is bored. But overall a good experience.
    HR does not reply to your emails. No information about the decision until I received a rejection email one month after the interview.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Thales.

    Interview

    Interview process was simple. First one is with hiring manager, second is a panel with the team youd be working wih and third is with HR to access overall behavior and discuss company benefits and the perks of working there. If you get to the last interview with HR, you are pretty much in a good place and should hear back about an offer.

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA (US)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screening. First on-site interview was panel interview with three different product managers. Second was with one of three managers, another new product manager and director/vp of department. First round was good. Everyone was friendly, and it was only for an hour. Second round was 2 1/2 hour interview. Director was nice, but the product manager I met first time in second round. He did not seem interested in me at the start of interview. He check the time all the time. Second interviewer came in little earlier than she was scheduled so he could leave early with happy face. Beside him, everyone seemed nice, but I can tell they have long hours
