I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in October 2009.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume and received a call two days later. I interviewed the next day. I was interviewed by all the developers and the project manager at the same time. The interview wasn't very technical. They told me what they were working on and asked me a bit about my resume. They didn't ask me silly questions like "explain the Factory pattern" and "is java pass by reference or pass by value." It lasted about 45 minutes. It was very relaxed and was more of a back and forth story exchange.

Interview Question – I always have a bit of problem in interviews explaining myself clearly and coherently. Blame it on nerves or social anxiety or whatever. There were not difficult technical questions which I found surprising. Most interviews are these gotcha situations which honestly never have much significance to real life software developer situations. It was pretty relaxed.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wanted more vacation time but they declined and offered me an extra week's pay instead.

The process took a day - interviewed at Computer Sciences Corp in October 2008.

Interview Details – I switched from a subcontractor to CSC. I was a known quantity. All requirements were met through observed work performance.

In general, interviews are normally rather detailed, many people are involved, perhaps a technical test will be required.

Interview Question – Questions will involve technical details of languages and best practices. CMMI, ITIL based questions are also likely.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was unable to obtain a 3rd week of vacation to match my previous employer - so I asked for 2% more income to cover loss. It was granted. I took an additional week a year off without pay covered by the increase.
