    Interview Details

    Applied at csc.com. One phone interview then a face-to-face. Rated as excellent. Several interviews for other positions while my background check is being done. However, the story takes a weird turn. Ever feel like your time was wasted?

    Reasons for Declining

    They strung me out for 2 months, stated my background check was running late. various interviews for other positions all turned down. Turned out it was all about getting a higher security clearance. They should have told me and not played me. End of story.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Computer Sciences Corp.

    Interview Details

    Your resume is assumed to be self-explanatory of your experience and ability, so don't expect too many questions. They probably wont hire you at first, but instead use a cheesy contract emloyment agency to underpay you without so much as a day if holiday pay. after 3 and 6 and maybe even 9 months they'll make it sound like you're priveliged to get your crappy temp contract renewed before they'll ever consider hiring you on. This is a very long, detailed, and strenuous task. Imagine getting hired by the fbi or nsa and you'll get the picture. Be sure to have every form if id possible and the last 10 years of employment history available with exact dates.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Computer Sciences Corp.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was exceptional. There was great communication and coordination from HR. There was a barrage of tests even before the interview; making me believe the company new what they wanted. The interviews were professional and in depth. It was a board interview with plenty of professional and personal questions. The entire process made me feel I was applying for a job of a higher degree than it was.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was, "What do you plan to get out of this company?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation; not even in the schedule. I would recommend this company/position for an entry level candidate, but would suggest another position for all others.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp.

    Interview Details

    Was absorbed from another company, no interview. CSC takes over the IT Department and hires the people who work there. There were no questions asked but that was a long time ago. It might be different now.

    Negotiation Details
    CSC dropped my pay severely when hired from a contractor to employee.
