    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at General Atomics.

    Interview

    Intensive, spoke with 3-4 different people, all pleasant. They were on a hiring freeze so they put the position on hold for a few months and then contacted me for a 2nd interview.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Atomics.

    Interview

    5 same day interviews, 5 hours and different panels. Not a bad experience but my game was thrown off course with the first interview. Over 20 years of project and program management and this was the most unusual interview process I’ve ever been though.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview was more of a statement. Trump is an idiot followed by ‘you can’t have friends at work, save it for the weekends’ and ‘I need the manager position to keep the engineers on task by whatever means’. Odd, but I actually liked the directness.   Answer Question
    • What would you do if the project went off course? Response: I’d handle it myself and only escalate if needed. Wrong answer as I could see the response in his facial and body gestures. Overall, a good experience but I wasn’t the right person for the job.   Answer Question

    Inventory Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at General Atomics (San Diego, CA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Process takes a while, so be prepared to wait. Applied online in early January 2020, was given an interview mid march. Offer letter came 2 days ago. Compared to other companies i've interviewed with (namely Northrop Grumman), the GA hiring process takes much longer. Recruiters were very kind, but weren't the best at reaching out to inform you of next steps or when to expect them at all.

    Senior Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Poway, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at General Atomics (Poway, CA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Initial call with HR, followed by a ~1hr call with the hiring manager. After that an onsite interview that was about 3 hours long. Overall a great interview experience, they were very welcoming and I felt that all of their questions were great without any of the typical interview "fluff" questions. Unfortunately at the time had to turn them down, but a great interview experience!

    Interview Questions

    • Expect detailed questions about embedded systems, syntax, and variables. I think they were great questions for what the position expected, so I won't give them away on here, but if you are strong in your embedded skills you will be great. There was also a live programming exercise that wasn't too difficult.   Answer Question
