Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp (Hartford, CT) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Knew someone at the company. Sent resume directly to their manager. Interviewed by phone. 2 interviews by phone. Received offer by maiil. The paperwork such as background, credit and security takes a few weeks. You get the onboarding training coming in the door. If you are virtual employee you will need to come into the nearest location. To get your access to network/email etc takes about a week or more longer for account access. Mentor may or may not be assigned.

    Interview process was good and questions asked during discussion were relevant to the position applied. The only delay was b/w the 1st and 2nd round of discussions. Final round post Hiring Manager discussion was about communication...not sure how this is relevant since I've 10+ years of work exp and also hv solid onsite exp.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in February 2012.

    Interview

    First thing that was asked by the interviewers were, "What do you know about our company?". Secondly, the proceeded to ask about a program which no one really knows anything about. Third, the asked the usual questions, "where do you see yourself in 3-5 years?", "tell us about a difficult/positive situation" etc... Finally, the asked, 'how much money do you want to make?". When I gave them my previous salary requirements for essentially the same job they replied, "that's a little too high". I have heard that this company was cheap, but really? That did not give me a warm and fuzzy. Neither when they said this was a "fixed-price" contract. Uh-oh!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview with the hiring manager went fine. She put me totally at ease and was friendly and professional. Then I interviewed with one of her project managers who asked some tough questions but who was also very professional. The work culture seemed pretty formal, dress code was business dress and CSC was very concerned with providing the best possible service for the customer. He mentioned that the customer is pretty hard to please.
