    Interview Details

    Basic technical questions on the Windows operating system. Offer was made to me by telephone before I got home from the interview. One of the "workers" I interviewed with basically told me I would be crazy to work for CSC - found that amusing especially if he was selected to help interview me.

    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.

    First was led in by two people in the front. They went over the benefits and general guidelines of this job as we waited for a team of engineer analysts to come. 4 people entered the room. They picked apart my resume and asked questions all related to my resume. Not very many general interview questions, most questions were just related to my past experience (my resume)

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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.
