    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une autre source. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à SpaceX (Paris) en juin 2015.

    Entretien

    I contacted them by email after watching a conference from SpaceX (NVIDIA GTC 2015). I got an answer within a few days and we scheduled a phone screen for the following week. A few hours before the phone screen I got contacted by HR to get various information about my GPA and school degrees. After the phone screen I was told I would have a second interview which I got a few days later. After the final interview I was told that I would be contacted by HR. In less than a 24H, HR told my that I was accepted for the intern.

    The two interviews start by asking you to sum up your prior work experience. Then they ask you a series of questions. At the end you are given the opportunity to ask them questions.

    Entretien

    Pretty straight forward, I received a screening call from HR first and then later followed up with a senior manager who went through a generic resume screening process with me. I'm not sure why my process was so straightforward and simple, but this was also for a Fall Internship opportunity.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé une entrevue à SpaceX.

    Entretien

    I was still in school so my hiring process was a bit more spread out (~ 2 months). I went and talked to SpaceX at a career fair and apparently did well enough to hear from two different recruiters in the next week. I received an email from one of them and scheduled a phone call with them to talk about the position. We talked for about 20 min and she asked me a few basic questions about my experience, oddly they wanted to know my irrelevant SAT and ACT scores from years before, and she decided I was a good fit so scheduled a phone call for me with the team manager about 2 weeks later.

    When I got on the phone with him we went much more in depth as to prior projects from internships and school. The call lasted about 30 min and did not really have any challenging questions. He said I could expect to hear back in about a week. I ended up hearing back from the recruiter the next day, telling me I was going to be pushed to the next round of the process.

    A few weeks later they flew me down to Orlando for an in person interview, involving a 30 minute presentation on one of my previous projects in front of 6 engineers on the team. This presentation quickly became about an hour and a half after answering all of their questions throughout it, which was very challenging. The questions keep you on your toes and are mostly meant to see how you approach it and think through it, not necessarily to get it correct due to how quickly they want an answer (although that's always a plus). After the presentation they gave me about a 60 question test, basic physics questions with no math, just concepts. They give you an hour to take it but it doesn't take that long if you know your stuff. After this I was able to tour the pad, and due to the timing of my interview, I was lucky enough to walk directly underneath the Falcon Heavy while it was still being assembled in the hangar. Following the interview, the timeline was about the same. I heard back from the recruiter 2 days later saying I had been pushed to the final step of the process.

    This time was just another phone call, except with the VP of launch (If you get this far be prepared). The phone call was about 20 minutes long and he just asked more challenging questions, and then we talked about the company in general. Again, I heard back 2 days later and the recruiter told me that the paperwork was not official yet but that I had received the job!

    The process starts with a phone screen with the hiring manager. Once you pass the phone screen, you are given a design project to work through before your formal on-site interview. The design project requires you to come up with a working, simulated design. You are required to submit a formal presentation of your work which you are to present on your interview day. On-site interview starts with a presentation of your design in front of a group of people and you must be prepared to answer questions. This is followed by several one-on-one interviews.

    Entretien

    Reached out by a recruiter on Linkedin then went through a brief conversation with this recruiter, followed by a take-home exam on previous experience and light coding tests. Then a technical phone call with an engineer. They are really pushy in the process and no matter what your time preference is, they will go with theirs anyway so don't bother. During the technical phone screen, the interviewer was unprofessional, he was chatting and laughing with somebody on the other side of the call. Although I did all questions correctly and in time, I was rejected immediately and no feedback was given.

    Entretien

    One quick screening call and a phone interview lasting about 30 minutes. The screening call was actually fairly similar to the phone interview but less thorough. During the phone interview, they asked normal questions and explained the position and why the position was open. I thought that the interview went very well but unfortunately, I was not selected for the position.
