    Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DynCorp International in June 2010.

    Interview

    The first recruiter asked why I was selected, and wanted me to explain why the hiring manager selected me. The second recruiter asked for completed paperwork I had not received yet, after a week of my requesting, the paperwork was provided for me to fill out. The third recruiter never returned emails about where I was in the process; if she returned a phone call it would be at 01:00 in the morning. The level of disconnect between what information was provide them and what they chose to absorbed is great. It even went so far as the travel office issuing a ticket for an international flight, the information was provided at 9:34 PM, for a 1:30 AM flight, departing from a country I was not even physically in.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in November 2011.

    Done through a third-party recruiting company. One hand does not know what the other is doing, so lots of duplication.

    Negotiation

    All offers are "take it or leave it." Do not believe you will ever receive the Management Incentive Bonus unless you abandon all sense of principle and independent thinking.

    IT Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in February 2010.

    Interview

    When I was scouting DI as a potential employer, I found that I liked the company's values. That was one of the things that attracted me to the company. My interview process was short. I only had one phone and one face-to-face interview. Prior employment experience put me on a short list of candidates. My interview was conducted by a Jr. VP and my hiring manager, as well as an HR representative who seemed to be keeping the interview questions on a certain tack.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me about yourself" is the bane of my existence in an interview, and it was no different here. I prepare for this question with every interview, and it's still always the hardest thing to answer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was fixed, so no negotiation took place.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at DynCorp International in October 2011.

    Interview

    It was easy and organised. The DynCorps delegates encourage you and they were familiar. The interview location was a 2000 KMs away from me so it took me 2 days of continues travelling by local transport like buses and railways...after the interviewed i got my offer letter on my way back to home, their processing was so fast.
    A few paper works, interview and that's it...get ready to utilize your skills with respect and good outcome.

    Negotiation

    The pay-out they give you is now much lesser than before in this project . In simple we get just 1/4th then any US citizen besides we have the same hazardous environment and life threatening situations.

    Category Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Employees are either contract to hire or hired directly. Contractors as heavily used at DI and there is some envy by full time employees due to overtime regularly required but only contractors are paid overtime. Direct hire are at times put off for weeks / months until they lose the candidate who opts for another opportunity. Contract to hire is much more informal and good results usually results in job offer - if contractor is willing to accept salary (sometimes well below the compensation as a contractor).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Lengthy negotiations, HR was not up to date on industry comps
