Virgin has long inspired its employees to believe in themselves and realise their potential. And in the case of Lexy Snell, shoot for the stars… literally. Lexy Snell is Assistant Crew Chief at Virgin Galactic on Virgin SpaceShip Unity, but she did not start out that way. Raised in the state of New Mexico, much of Lexy’s upbringing was spent moving around trailer parks. For years she was unsure of what she wanted to be in life but she knew she wanted to be something.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Virgin Galactic (Los Angeles, CA)

    Interview

    Approximately 20 days after my application was submitted I was contacted to schedule an initial phone screen to take place that same week.

    2 Business days after my phone screen I was contacted to schedule a Zoom interview with Hiring manager. Due to my own schedule restraints this was set for a week later.

    The following week I had two more interviews scheduled.

    After my final interview it was 3 business days until I received an offer for the role.

    I was very happy with the communication coming from the recruiting team and scheduling felt easy with options laid out for me.
    Interview

    Heavy focus on your own story and the shape of your career path.
