    4 phone interviews. First interview was with the recruiter. Second interview was with hr. Third interview was a group interview with 2 people. Fourth interview was also a group interview with two people. I was given a verbal offer. Two days later the recruiter called and said that the immediate manager I will be working with also wants to interview me. This was rather unprofessional of csc. The last interviewer was very rude and unprofessional. The offer was then receded.

    Electronics Maintenance Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Carson, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Carson, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first applied online via their website and received a phone call about 8 days later. The interview was a few days after that. The interview was administered by two individuals. The first individual asked me questions relevant to my personality. The second individual asked me skill based questions and gave me a small quiz with about 12 questions relevant to electronics. Pretty basic stuff.

    The overall feel of the interview was very calm and easy going. They were nice and professional. They gave me ample time to respond to questions and to complete the little quiz on electronics. The whole interview took about 20-30 minutes.

    Upon completing the interview I was told I would be contacted within a few days whether I was accepted or denied. Three days later I got the call and was offered the job; I accepted the offer. Between the day I accepted and my start date(3weeks) there are a few steps including applications and background checks, drug tests and confirmation of my security clearance.

    From start to finish, submission of online application to first day of work.... was about 4 weeks.

    Senior Professional Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went quickly, first a phone interview and then an in-person interview with four-six individuals. The in-person took roughly an hour and a half to complete. Hiring process took a long time - lots of delays going back and forth with HR.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really - the questions were very traditional (greatest strength, tell me about a time when you did X). I was slightly concerned at first because everyone was very relaxed and the atmosphere was a bit non-traditional, but overall the lack of stuffiness and formality made it a positive experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I counter-offered and they did not accept. I was initially called by HR during the interview process and was asked to state a salary range. They provided me with the lowest salary in that range and did not accept any negotiations on benefits, signing bonuses, or salary.
