    Project Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SAIC.

    Interview Details

    First contacted by recruiter via email to schedule a phone screening.
    About a week after the phone screen, received another email to schedule an in-person interview.

    The instructions to get to the interview were detailed and helpful. The only thing that would make it better is to instruct applicants which entrance, and where to go after they enter. I almost missed the sign that said "visitors" and walked straight through armed security. Given that this is DC, I'm sure I would have been face to the floor, hands behind my back.

    The interview itself was pleasant. The interviewers were friendly, welcoming, and made me feel like I was already part of the team. The recruiting manager even gave me his cell number to call if I had any questions.

    But after that, everything went downhill. I was informed I would hear back the following week. I didn't get a response. I called the manager and was informed the recruiter would get back to, and that there was a budgeting issue that may prevent the job from being filled. I never got a response from the recruiter so I emailed asking for a follow-up and still nothing. Shortly thereafter I looked at the requisition online and it stated the position was filled.

    I wished that if I didn't get the position, they would extend me the professional courtesy to tell me I was not selected and why. Applicants such as myself are professional enough to take rejection and learn from the experience. If not, then those applicants shouldn't get the position anyway. No response is the worst response. At least "no" meant I could start looking for other opportunities instead of waiting on this one.

    But all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience and I would still apply for SAIC.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SAIC.

    Interview Details

    Interview was via phone with recruiter and then via phone with hiring manager. Hiring manager was reported to be "extremely busy" so interview could not take place in person although the company is close by and an in-person interview could have easily been set up. Never a good sign when meeting in person is preferred. Seemed that the hiring manager was just trying to fill a set of strict requirements on a list and not looking what candidates could bring to the table overall. Pleasant conversations. Follow up by the recruiter was not good considering no written or verbal notification that the position was filled or removed. No positive or negative communication was extended except that the position just disappeared from the job posting list.

    CSF-PREP Site Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Bragg, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Bragg, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at SAIC.

    Interview Details

    The position was posted on the SAIC website and I was referred by a member of the team from the worksite. I submitted an application, cover letter and resume electronically. I was contacted by the project lead one week later, as he was conducting screening interviews. The interviewer was friendly and had basic questions about my background. He indicated that he was conducting initial screening and that he would be inviting candidates to conduct in person interviews within the week (but indicated that he would be on leave the next week). After 12 days, I followed up and was told that the interviews would be conducted later in the month, but no specific timeline was given. I received an email asking if I would be available for an interview on one of two days. I was called by the project lead again, to schedule a specific time and date for the interview. He indicated that I would be asked to prepare and present a presentation (topic at my discretion) not to exceed 10 minutes, in order to demonstrate my ability to present to a group. I communicated with the admin staff and provided my presentation two days prior to the interview. The admin staff indicated that I could expect not more than 6 people to be present for the interview. When I arrived, I was shown around the facility by the admin staff, who were friendly and welcoming. There were four people present in the interview: the Regional Manager, the Project Lead, the Military Liaison/Counterpart and the Overall Site lead. They were up front about how the interview would proceed and I was offerred water. During the initial portion, I was asked questions by the interviewers (they all seemed to have some specific questions that they were interested in); approximately 45 minutes into the interview I gave my presenation; and then I was able to ask questions. Upon concluding the interview, I was thanked for coming and shown out. I was told that they would be making a decision within the week, after a week, I emailed to follow up and was told that they had not made a decision yet. I received an automated message that the job had been filled, but no other communication.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at SAIC in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    One of the most positive job interview experiences I have ever had! I felt very comfortable and was able to speak at great lengths to the interviewers about the job and my qualifications, and how I may be of service to the company. From what I saw, I really liked the work environment and the job location very much.
