    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Falls Church, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Falls Church, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was extensive. Met with several managers, possible future co-workers and human resources. Their orientation program was not very strong and had too much basic information and wasn't very insightful. I did like how they paired you up with buddies to learn about the organization. Lead recruiter was very good at following-up and scheduling interviews. I do not think management sold the job very well and promised things that did not come true to life. May have been just a management issues and not reflective of the whole company.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    A little strange. I was prepared to be grilled and answer a lot of detailed and curve-ball questions about my background and experience. Instead the three people I interviewed with all seemed to be more concerned about getting to know me. Once I joined I discovered that team fit was a bigger concern than discussing the minutae of my resume. Made sense when a poor fit for th team I worked on was hired - it was very disruptive of a team that otherwise hummed like a precision tool.

    Interview Questions
    • There were none - assessment of personality was main thrust of the interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was offered the top of my salary range, but everything else was non-negotiable.
