  • Long hours (but worth it if you're all-in on the mission)

  • Don’t expect to have much of a life outside work

  • You really have to enjoy what you're doing otherwise you won't like it there. It's a lot of work and it's not for everybody.

Candidates who make it through those four phone conversations are brought to the SpaceX campus for a full day of interviewing with "everyone who might work with them." Interviewers talk to candidates in pairs where they are "grilled" in seven to eight one-hour interview sessions. Halfway through, they get a break for lunch and to take a tour of factory. The second half of interviews then commence. If even one person expresses doubt at any part in the process, the interview comes to a halt and the applicant is immediately sent home.

“First there was a phone screen, talked through a recent project and answered interviewers' questions on technical details of the project. Then there was a take home programming challenge with 48 hours to complete. Lastly, there was a presentation on solution to challenge with the interview team, followed by a live coding challenge and a hiring manager interview."
