Blue Origin's Subreddit
Just had my technical phone interview for a welding position. He was impressed with my resume. Chatted a little about me, and asked why I would they should have me on the team. Explained im a hard worker, pick up on things fairly quick, and if I get stuck on something I try to figure it out and ask others on their ideas amd how to solve. I personally think it went very well. He mentioned HR will call on their decision if they want to bring me in for a weld test. And to not be discouraged if they don't call within a week or so. So hopefully its good news and I can move to the next step.
Hey everyone, this is very random. I was applying for a multitude of jobs and found myself on a screening call for an industrial engineering position.
The call went alright, and I just found I was being signed up for a full interview, presentation and everything. It seems very intimidating, and I don’t know much about the position. Can anyone talk through about their experiences working at Blue Origin, and any advice for this massive interview?
Blue Origin has been working on New Glenn for quite a while now. While updates on the rocket are rare, we have learned about a host of changes to either the rocket itself or its mission profile, that are different from the original plan. Its not uncommon that while companies are developing rockets, things change throughout this process. However, Blue Origin and New Glenn have been making some significant updates to the future of New Glenn.
Since New Glenn was practically announced, the plan has been for the first stage to be reusable. Specifically, Blue Origin wanted to land this 60 meter tall booster on a moving ship out at sea. The company even purchased a cargo ship and worked to refit it as a mobile landing platform in the ocean for future New Glenn launches. This being said, recently the company scrapped the ship which brings up the question, what is Blue Origin’s plan going forward?
We have seen SpaceX land Falcon 9’s booster many times on drone ships at sea, but this is by no means an easy process. Not to mention the significant size difference between a Falcon 9 booster and New Glenn’s booster. Here I will go more in-depth into the ship being scrapped, possible plans going forward, how the booster is expected to land, and more.
I submitted my application a couple weeks ago but haven't heard anything aside from the confirmation email. I know that their website says interviews are conducted "throughout the fall" but was curious if anyone had been contacted yet. I also understand that they might not specifically inform you if you've been rejected.
