Structural Analyst Technical Screening

So I’ve made it past the first “technical phone screen” at Blue for a Rocket Engine Structural Analysis interview, and now have a technical phone screening tomorrow. Any idea what I should expect? Will it all be questions based on my resume or any prepared technical questions? Are there any specific questions I should prepare to answer?

Workday Application Status

Hi there. Does anyone know the official workday portal application statuses? My application went from "Application Submitted" to "Application Submitted, Under Review." I applied for a non-technical position and don't want to get too excited about this small change in my application status. Thanks!

Games on computer?

How would it go if I downloaded WoW on my Blue computer? 😅

Haven’t downloaded anything non-work related on it. Hell don’t even have the time for games anymore. But given how much of a potato my pc is when I did play, the temptation to just run a bit of WoW to see the graphics is growing stronger and stronger 😅😅

Typical entry jobs

I’ve been in sales for that past year and a half and am becoming pretty burnt out. It’s affecting my mental health and relationships. Before that I was a manager for a cleaning and maintenance company. I stopped that because it was a dead end job. Are that any short certifications I can get, that will get me in, or are there any entry level jobs at blue origin that will atleast get the bills paid? 50k+. I like to work with my hands and I know a few people that work there.

Blue Origin Crane Installs Comms Dishes onto the ship Harvey Stone

Thanks to Gav Cornwell for being sharp-eyed as always:

https://x.com/SpaceOffshore/status/1799109259033985236

Blue Origin's crane at Port Canaveral was seen installing comms dishes onto the Harvey Stone ship, that arrived Weds.

This is the visual confirmation I needed to tell you this ship on Blue Origin payroll and if they're installing equipment, it's probably here for the long run.

Blue origin launch scheduled for September...

In the south Florida sun Sentinel, it has the space coast launch schedule, with the coming missions from the Kennedy space Center in Cape Canaveral... And it has this entry for September...

"SEPTEMBER

TBD: First launch of Blue Origin’s New Glenn rocket. On the Space Force manifest for September 2024, according to Space Force officials."

"https://www.sun-sentinel.com/2024/06/05/space-coast-launch-schedule-2/"

We will find soon enough whether it this is valid or not....

Final Interview Prep Advice for Skills Evaluation Test

Hello everyone,

I have a final interview coming up and I'm seeking advice on how to prepare for the skills evaluation test. I've worked as a structural mechanic for several years, and the last skills evaluation I did was at Boeing, which involved a close tolerance plate test drilling. This included tasks like reading blueprints, step-up drilling, and setting up countersinks.

Has anyone here gone through a similar evaluation, particularly at Blue Origin or a similar company? If so, could you share any specifics about the process or tips on how to best prepare?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Made it to round 2 what should I expect in tech interview & Panel?

As title said I made it past the first interview and am looking for advice to prepare for the technical interview & panel? What should I expect? Does anyone have advice on questions to ask the interviewer(s) other than the standard ones related to advancement/benefits/project & mission?

My past experience seems to line up well with the work but I want to make sure I am able to accurately articulate & communicate my skills & experience in the best way possible to the technical hiring managers.

Thanks,
