    Very simple. There was a phone interview. They asked for samples of your work and experience with office software. The last item was the face to face interview with a very high strung yet brilliant VP. She knew exactly what she wanted, and would not settle for less.

    Negotiation

    The amount I was offered was fixed for person's of my skills and background due to DynCorp's bid as a contractor for the US Gov. I had researched the pay of my position prior to the job offer, so was not surprised by the rate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I was interviewed over the phone, and I was told I'd get a supervisor position most likely. I was offered a position that same night, and sent a welcome packet. Since I was in Iraq, I had to return to the US for a few days while my clearance was processed. I then went to Ft. Worth to process. Processing wasn't bad, as it was quick and DI put me up in the Marriott hotel. After completion of processing, which included a perfunctory physical exam, I was shipped off to Afghanistan.

    Category Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    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
