    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cubic.

    Interview

    Was called within a couple weeks by the HR to set up a face-to-face interview. Met three people: the HR and two who I would be reporting to, one by one. But before any interview, the HR covered the benefits first. The whole interview took about an hour, and I was shown around the building. It was an overall a pleasant experience. I knew I wouldn't get the job as soon as one of the higher people expressed concerned that I never took a business class. Received a rejection email the day after the interview.

    Somewhat casual interview with the team you would be working with. They just went down my resume asking questions about what was on it and any projects I have done along with how my experience went. Discussed group projects also what was the biggest project I have ever worked on.

    Interview

    After applying I was emailed with an online form to fill out detailing past work experience, education, and citizenship.

    Received a call shortly after to set up an interview.

    Interview was at the facility. Three to four engineers ask you general questions about your resume. A couple of behavioral and situation questions but nothing too technical. They were very friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Cubic in July 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process has been relatively painless so far, and similar to my experience with other corporations. The application was done online through the corporate website after seeing the job posted on a popular job listing site. Application included, of course, uploading a resume. I was contacted after about a week for scheduling an interview. The interview was conducted by phone and lasted about 25 minutes. There was discussion of my past experience, current situation, what the position would entail and a brief overview of the project. About a week later I received an offer, which was satisfactory and met my personal requirements. I would call it a fair offer -- not overly generous -- but good in light of the current economic environment, government contracting, etc. My advice to job seekers is to craft a good resume. I recently retired from the military, so have limited experience with the civilian 'corporate' world, job hunting, etc. Initially, I used a resume service that assisted in writing a resume which successfully 'translated' my military experience into language that would be clearly understood by civilian employers. I have used that initial resume as a foundation for subsequent resumes, and it has served as a successful instrument for me. Also, be truthful. Don't embellish, but sell yourself and your capabilities. For instance, and this is from personal experience, an employer just might be more interested in qualities, capabilities, and experiences that you have which might be best described as tangential to the position, e.g., a computer programmer with foreign language skills, a systems engineer with a background in intelligence collection. You never know where your experience, education, and skills might take you. Good luck.

    Interview with HR and Hiring manger, which is typical. The process can be slow. Interview with the hiring manager was very direct. None of the typical "If you were stranded on an island" kind of questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cubic (San Diego, CA (US)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Went to interview at plant as scheduled by HR intern. Went to interview 10 min ahead of time set. 35 min later, HR rep (not intern) appeared and told me intern scheduled wrong day and asked to re sked for following day. Next day, went in as scheduled. HR rep seemed agitated as though I was an inconvenience. Following that engaging experience, went on daisy chain of interviews from office to office. Learned that interviewers were not sure what the role's responsibilities were of the position I was interviewing for. Interviews were more conversational than behavioral based. At end of interview, I was escorted back to reception space and essentially dismissed. I had previously mapped my quals to their specific reqmts, so they knew I was qualified. Never heard back from anyone in the company. After 2 weeks and no feedback from Cubic, I learned from a contact within the company who had referred me, that no one who had been interviewed was going to be selected... Essentially they were window shopping for the purple squirrel. Their actions spoke louder than words, am happy in retrospect I dodged that bullet. Knowing what I know now, would not work there.

    Interview

    I was called for a phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. I am expecting a follow up call and possible in-person interview. The interviewer gave me general talking points and expected me to expand on them and relate them to my coursework and individual projects. I was doing most of the talking for the 30 minute interview.
