    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Akima.

    Interview

    The interview was really easy. I applied online and received a call within a week. The interview was in person with the manager there and it was more like a meet and greet. A couple days later I met with HR for a more formal interview but it appeared as though it was a formality.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Akima in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied and was interviewed first through an outside agency. It took only 4 days to get an interview with the hiring manager. However, it turned out to be a panel phone interview, which I thought was odd

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Akima (Herndon, VA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview 1:1 Group/ panel w team The interview was rather easy since all questions focused on Govt contracting and my experience. Akima was implementing a new system and I was hired more for data entry than anything. Once the new Director arrived she replaced everyone with her own team. Very difficult person to work with. Not much a of team player. Went behind peoples back and would play games.

    Negotiation

    it was through a staffing agency so no nego

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Akima (Charlotte, NC) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Very confusing. Initial screening interviews several times by different outside recruiters as well as internal HR reps. The initial salary range in the posting was $100K, but it kept heading lower in subsequent interviews without any explanation. They never seemed to know what they were doing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Akima (Livermore, CA) in August 2008.

    Interview

    The process started with an e-mailed application specific questionnaire. It was quite simple; a neophyte application user could have answered the questions with relative ease. The next step was a panel interview. Two client representatives asked application specific questions for about 1/2 hour. The interview concluded. It took about one week to get the decision.
