    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Accepted Offer
    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 an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Brutal process of getting around HR organization, but the employees I worked with in an operational capacity were professional, excellent and respectful.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your prior experiences with 'x' technology   1 Answer
    • What experience do you have managing people?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Ask for the max: You will find lesser skilled employees scattered throughout the organization making exorbitant amounts because they caught Dyncorp in a bind at the time of the contract with the gov't. When Dyncorp gets desperate for people, they simply up the contract amount with the gov't. So long as Dyn gets it's cut of the contract, they aren't overly concerned if they you 100k or 150k. It's all negotiable to their customer, the gov't.
