Human Resources Director Interview

Human Resources Director

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at American Systems.

All my interview questions were answered accurately and candidly. You could clearly feel the "team spirit" within the company during the interview process.

Interview Question – could you stay a few hours longer than we originally planned to meet other people in the company (which was a great question to receive).   Answer Question

Data Analyst Interview

Data Analyst
Chantilly, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Systems in January 2014.

Interview Details – I sent in my resume and cover letter. I received a call that day to set up a phone interview time.

The phone interview was very straight forward, basic question about interests to see if the position was a fit. The next day I received a call to schedule an in-person interview.

The in-person interview lasted between 2-3 hours. I met with several key people such as the VP of the department, the direct supervisor, and other coworkers.

The day after I received a job offer.

Interview Question – How do you feel about current economic policy?   View Answer

Very Easy Interview

Corporate Staff Interview

Corporate Staff
Chantilly, VA

The process took a day - interviewed at American Systems in May 2012.

Interview Details – I was invited for an interview and they completely wasted my time. Had an interview over the phone at first and that went really well, they were impressed with my experience and background. They invited me to meet with the hiring manager, but when I showed up at their office, it was very obvious that I am not their "type" They were definitely expecting a caucasian and I am hispanic. It was obvious immediately that they were put off by my ethnicity, even though I have more than 20 years of experience, a masters degree and speak three languages fluently.
They made a lame excuse about the hiring manager being called to another meeting and dismiss me without even giving me an employment application. They do not follow EEOC and OFCCP regulations and they acted like they would prefer to see me cleaning their toilets than as an executive of their company managing staff. I have never felt more humiliated in my professional career.
