GIS FMV Psotitions Interview

GIS FMV Psotitions
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at SAIC in January 2012.

Interview Details – Took a long time (approximately 2 months) unitl i heard anything aside from an automated email reply.
Once I recieved a phone call it was from the hiring manager for the contract and a technical analyst. They had my resume and asked I had time now for an interview. Interview went well, the hiring manager did not know a lot of the specifics of the contract and did not know the 'technical speak', which was why the technical analyst was there. Interview went well but they were obviously trying to hire for lower positions but they wanted someone with experience. I could speak to everything they required without problems. Said they would let people know in a few weeks about the position. Found out through an email the position was closed with no explaination.

Intern Interview

Intern
Washington, DC

The process took a day - interviewed at SAIC in February 2011.

Interview Details – The hiring manager forwarded my resume to the hr. And the hr called me up on a Friday morning. She asked several basic questions about my working permits, my relevant education background. Two behavioral questions but no technical questions at all. A follow up phone call from hiring manager was on next Tuesday (quite efficient by the way). We didn't chat a lot before we get to the interview. He asked me to describe relevant experience I listed on my resume and particularly asked me what my role was in those task. Overall it's a nice experience, but I don't know why I didn't get an offer.

Market Strategy Directpor Interview

Market Strategy Directpor
Arlington, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at SAIC in November 2009.

Interview Details – Interviews consisted of a series of informal meetings with middle and upper management over lunch and/or dinner. Most of interview seemed to aim at indirect or subtle discussions which were cover for probing questions on market understanding and strategy. Some leaders spent more time selling their organization or entire company. Most wanted to discern strategic value I could provide. Overall tone pleasant but some uncertainty due to indirect approach.

Interview Question – Not really a question. Interviewer appeared to postulate erroneous view of markets and market sectors with regard to growth potential. So, the question was subtle and the method for responding required both tact and conviction.   Answer Question

Proposal Designer Interview

Proposal Designer
McLean, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at SAIC in July 2009.

Interview Details – Everything went really well. I was very impressed with SAIC. They told me they would make a decision the day of my interview. The next week I was told I was one of two and after that there was no communication from them. It's pretty rude to leave someone hanging with not so much as a "not interested".

Communications Lead/Specialist Interview

Communications Lead/Specialist
Washington, DC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at SAIC in April 2009.

Interview Details – I keep my resume on the SAIC website current and was lucky enough to receive a call from a recruiter asking me if I was still looking and interested in the position. I had to fill out a bunch of forms, send them back and had an interview with 3 individuals a week after initial contact.

The team told me a little bit about their contract, what the position entails, asked me if I had some of the qualifications such as (sharepoint and project management). They asked me a little bit about myself. When I asked them questions, they seemed impressed and a little challenged when answering the questions. Toward the end of the interview the HR person asked me my salary range, I countered the question and asked their range to determine if it was acceptable.

The HR person said "oh I see how you're going to play" then looked at my application and read off what I wrote down without giving me a range. I was very put off with the question of salary range at first interview and their response when I gave my range.

I wrote a thank you note to the hiring manager and heard back from the recruiter with the standard message a week later stating I wasn't offered the position. I wrote the recruiter back and asked if they received any feedback on areas I could improve, be it my skills whether it be taking a class, my interview skills, my salary requirements. I never got a response.
