Interview Details – I was called by the recruiter after posting my resume for a week. The recruiter was very friendly, After having 3 in-person interviews I was informed by the recruiter that she was leaving the company and that I should follow up with the HR Business unit who never returned my calls.

Interview Question – Why do you want to join CSC Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CSC in October 2013.
Interview Details – Was led into small conference room by executive secretary. Two Software developers asked technical questions for about one hour. Asked detailed questions about technologies I have not worked with in the past 3 or more years. They were looking for how I reasoned. They left the room, the Executive secretary escorted me from the building.
Interview Question – Asked detailed technical questions about technologies I worked with over 3 years ago. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Was not interviewed by management. When I asked how management was to work with interviewers responded positively but avoided answering the question.
I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at CSC in October 2009.
Interview Details – I submitted my resume and received a call two days later. I interviewed the next day. I was interviewed by all the developers and the project manager at the same time. The interview wasn't very technical. They told me what they were working on and asked me a bit about my resume. They didn't ask me silly questions like "explain the Factory pattern" and "is java pass by reference or pass by value." It lasted about 45 minutes. It was very relaxed and was more of a back and forth story exchange.
Interview Question – I always have a bit of problem in interviews explaining myself clearly and coherently. Blame it on nerves or social anxiety or whatever. There were not difficult technical questions which I found surprising. Most interviews are these gotcha situations which honestly never have much significance to real life software developer situations. It was pretty relaxed. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I wanted more vacation time but they declined and offered me an extra week's pay instead.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at CSC.
Interview Details – Typical behavioral based interview questions. Nothing out of the ordinary, didn't really give detail regarding benefits or time off policies when asked.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at CSC.
Interview Details – Original group that interviewed and hired me were up front and honest about the contract was under bid and short on manpower. Would need a lot of culture change type work to make it to the end of the contract. The replacement management were very different. They slashed the salaries of current leftover managers in order to have their high paid Director jobs. Then when you disagreed with them you found yourself getting laid off.
Interview Question – Would I do here at Vance AFB what I did at Ft. McCoy. View Answer
Negotiation Details – The original offer was made with as much attention to my needs as that of the companies. The Project Manager made sure I was hired in time in order to qualify for a bonus in my first year.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CSC in October 2013.
Interview Details – Was emailed about setting up a phone interview one day after applying online. The phone interview consisted of standard questions i.e "tell me about a time" and salary expectations. At the end of the phone interview I was invited to come to the office for an interview the next week.
In person interview consisted of meeting with 4 different team leaders (two over the phone). Each of the leaders asked pretty much the same questions "tell me about a time you had an upset customer?" "stengths and weaknesses". After this interview I was invited. by email, to come in for a second interview with the Small Business Unit in a different building. I also had to take a test online before I came in the second interview.
The second in person interview was with 2 teams leaders of the Small Business Unit. This is a call center, nothing else. This information was not presented in the job description online nor was it presented in the first interview. After answering some of the same questions from the first in person interview you sit with a Customer Service Representative for a little bit and listen to them answer calls.
Contacted HR a few days later to follow up and mentioned I was surprised that it was a call center. Got an email a few days later stating I did not get the job.
