    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at SRA International.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the SRA recruiter for a screening interview. She was very kind and informative. She then forwarded me over to the Hiring Manager for consideration. Within a day or so a phone interview was set up. The phone interview was purely testing my technical knowledge and lasted almost 30 minutes. Three members of the team were also there to ask questions. Within 10 minutes of the phone interview I received a call back to schedule an in-person interview. I went in for the in-person interview not knowing what to expect. The in-person interview was also all technical questions with the whole team and hiring manager. They were all very nice and getting into the facility was typical of a secured environment.

    Interview

    They were at my school for a career fair when I talked to them. I applied somewhat out of the blue and was selected as a first-round alternate interview candidate. This was for their business analyst internship position

    Interview Questions

    • Very straight-forward behavioral interview. The interviewer only asked me 3 questions, so it didnt really seem like a full interview. I was an alternate sign up so that might have been the reason   Answer Question

    Interview

    I was called quickly for an interview, however in the process of scheduling an interview date and time, suddenly communication stopped, and I received and e-mail stating I was no longer being considered for the position. Very unprofessional!
    Note to recruiting team, if you plan to try and pull working professionals from their current roles, be a little flexible with setting interview times.

    Interview

    Applied through university career center, received email notification of interview. 30 minute one on one interview on campus. This is an IT company, not a consulting firm All of their clients are government agencies. No case. Resume questions. From the first couple of questions, it was obvious that it wasn't a good fit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at SRA International (Fairfax, VA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through Indeed.com about 7-10 days later I received a follow-up email from the HR rep. The email had 5 follow-up questions (e.g. desired salary, desired commute distance/time, etc) which I answered & got an email back asking when would be a good day & time for a phone interview with them. My phone interview with HR was very brief (about 10-15 mins) where the HR rep explained the position to me a bit more & then set up a day & time for me to come in for an in-person interview. When I arrived at the office for my in-person interview I was pleasantly surprised by how big the HQ campus was (they offer free parking!) & how friendly everyone was. At HQ, everyone gets a personal office but if you work in the Arlington location which they just remodeled then everyone has a cubical office. My interview started off with meeting 2 higher-up. They spent our time telling me about the company & the organizational structure of the company. They asked a few questions about me but this session was more of a conversation then being grilled with questions. After 30 mins with them, I was interviewed by the people who would be my possible manager & colleagues. They were a very jovial bunch, who asked some behavioral & technical questions. There technique was to ask questions about specific skills & expertise that I my have -- I found out towards the end of the session why they went about asking things the way they did. Their previous employee lacked in the areas they were grilling me on so they wanted to make sure I was fully capable of doing the job & not just making fluff about my expertise. This interview lasted about 1.5 hours.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at SRA International (Frederick, MD).

    Interview

    Received an email from the HR recruiter one day after I applied for the position. We set up a phone interview for the next day. She was very nice - started the conversation by asking what I do now and why I'm in the job market. She almost immediately then asked what my salary expectations are - what I make now and what I hope to make. I told her what I make now and that I just didn't want to take a pay CUT and she was very honest explaining that because they're a government contractor, it would be a massive pay cut and told me what the range would be (it would be a huge pay cut). I really appreciated her honesty and upfront approach so we didn't waste time going back and forth.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SRA International (Fairfax, VA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I originally approached them at an on-campus career fair. I talked briefly to the representative and was scheduled an interview for the next day. The interview was very informal and the representative seemed more focus on selling SRA. I was asked questions about my previous experience and what I am looking for in a company.

    Afterwards, I received an email from an HR representative inviting me to an on-site interview at Fairfax, VA. Upon arriving, I was scheduled to have lunch at a local restaurant with two relatively new hires. The lunch was informal and we chatted about what SRA does, what they do, why I am interested, what role would I fit in at the company, etc. I was then scheduled for three interviews with more senior members of the company. All of the questions were behavioral or related to my previous experience. It seems like they are looking for someone who fits into their culture. All of the interviews were around 30 minutes long.

    I was then asked to fill out an online application and have an additional phone interview with a senior member. After that phone interview, I was never contacted again. The HR representative ignored my requests for a status update. I did not receive compensation for travelling to Fairfax. I enjoyed the interview experience and liked the company, but was slightly unhappy that they didn't explicitly give me a final response.
