Programmer Analyst Interview

Programmer Analyst
Rensselaer, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp.

Interview Details – Two people hired me (Dept. manager and the senior programmer). Interview was about 35 minutes long. Questions included getting to know you, experience, expectations of the prospective job. Questions were not too hard, and general. Interview was pleasant and not stressful.

Interview Question – Generic interview question: what are some of your weaknesses and how do overcome them.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They called me two weeks later to see if I was still interested in the job. I said yes, and they made a formal offer in writing. I reviewed the offer, accepted the offer verbally over the phone and signed the formal offer. I started two weeks later.

Difficult Interview

Programmer Analyst Interview

Programmer Analyst
Overland Park, KS

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in December 2010.

Interview Details – Well, I went in via a recruiter--this place basically recruits through firms for six month contracts-to-hire for all new placements. I was interviewed by the manager and my eventual team leader. They went over my employment history, discussed skills on CV, etc. They were particularly interested in my WPF skill, as their primary project was and is WPF-based, so we discussed that and they quizzed me on a few things. Then they gave me a some whiteboard data models, and had me come up with suitable data queries for different requirement sets. I got through most of them, though needed admittedly a little prompting on the last. The next week, I got the news they were offering me the position.

Interview Question – I'm afraid I don't remember the details, but it was a query involving multiple joins, groups, and IIRC at least one union.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They made an offer to my contracting firm, which relayed it to me. As I was out of work and feeling it, and the offer far exceeded my previous salary, I was perfectly happy to accept.

Programmer Analyst Interview

Programmer Analyst

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in February 2011.

Interview Details – The process was extremely drawn out and painful. I was forced to turn over information several times as the hiring representative lost it twice, after I overnight mailed it all twice. This almost cost me the job as they have a 7 day window to get all paperwork in to HR. The intricacies of the bureaucracy in this company are just disgusting. I will be hunting for a new job soon, as I like to be proud of my work and not just proud of sucking money out of a client.

Interview Question – What programming languages are you fluent in?   Answer Question
