I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems in July 2010.

Interview Details – One interview, it was fairly informal. I was contacted by a company subsidiary and asked to come in. i was interviewed by their president. I was offered the job on the spot. I do not believe this is how that interview process works within the corporate offices. From the first call to the offer the whole process took about 5 days.

Interview Question – nothing out of the ordinary   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – was able to negotiate. met in the middle

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Alexandria, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems.

Interview Details – Had to go through 3 different interviews - all about 30min and professional. Some questions were technical, but all the whole it was a behavior/culture based interview. Management seemed engaged and clearly knew what was going on in the market. took about 10 days to get an offer letter after the last interview, but that seems about normal.

Interview Question – How would I try to grow the company in my given market space   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – fair - the firm focuses on overall compensation, not just salary

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Alexandria, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems.

Interview Details – I was recommended for a senior analyst position by a former co-worker from an overseas assignment. A telephonic interview was scheduled, as I was still working abroad and was told that it would be a three step process. I was initially interviewed by several more experienced analysts and a database administrator. They provided me with several scenarios that called for me to explain actions that I would take to respond to customer requests for data from authoritative data sources. I was expected to detailed the most expedient method to pull the needed data and what I would use to present it in a user friendly format. I was then interviewed by several logistics services professionals. This group of individuals gauged my ability to interpet the data and recommend actions to alleviate negative impacts to customer wait time and other logistical jams. Once my responses were deemed satifsfactory, I was recommended for candidacy to fill the open position. My final interview was conducted by a VP, who negotiated my full compensation package expectations as well as my initial reporting requirements.

Interview Question – I don't remember the specifics of interview questions, but most dealt with timely responses without compromising accuracy.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very straightforwad and pleasant.
