    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    Initial screening phone interview with HR and hiring manager. This was a thirty minute session which ended with a request to visit the site. Site visit included a tour of the facility plus individual interviews with potential co workers and supervisors; six "interviews" in all. Very informal sessions - no real gotcha moments. Co workers were very candid and forthcoming. At times I forgot it was a job interview.

    Interview Details

    I introduced myself to a company representative at a job fair. We hit it off and he called me. A phone interview was scheduled with the department supervisor and manager and luckily I developed a good rapport with both of them. They were easy to talk to and very explicit in the job detail. A lunch date was scheduled and an offer was made. I accepted.

    Interview Details

    Was quick and a 2 step process. They do a quick 15 min phone screen and once that works, then they bring you onsite for an interview. The interview usually lasts few hours and then send you on your way home.

    Manager - Manufacturing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Walton Beach, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Walton Beach, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DRS Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Most interviews are unstructured and poorly managed and DRS is not an exception. Passed around to unqualified interviewers and the interview was more of a "will they fit", "can I work with them" and "can they handle the culture" probing. The only positive was that an offer was made before I left the facility.

    Negotiation Details
    HR said that the hiring manager was looking to spend around XXX dollars so I will tell them you were looking for YYY dollars. That way when they come back with ZZZ dollars they will feel like they "saved" some money and you will still get what you are looking for...

    Interview Details

    Initial interview met with three different employees, including HR, Hiring Manager, and another employee in which I would be working with. Interview went well. Never heard anything, assumed I was not selected and 4 months later received a call with an offer. VERY slow hiring process.

    Field Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DRS Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Was already working for DRS in Florida for 3 years when a Field Service Position opened up at an off site location. Policy was if you wanted to make a move from one department to another you had to notify your manager prior to beginning the process ,doesn't mean you'll get the job and will show your current manager you want out of there department. Had to "accidentally" leave resume with hiring manager because of this or current job could be in jeopardy. Once I was officially, unofficially told I would get the position I was told to go public with my intentions. At the time I made $13.00 an hour, starting pay was $25.00 an hour, HR felt that was too much of a jump in pay (which I would have been offered had I walked in off the street) so they dropped in down to $20 an hour, Take it or leave it. Pretty much took it and ran.

    Interview Questions
    • At that time it was still a small company and everyone knew each other so questions were pretty basic   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Wasn't any. HR under cut the starting wage and since I was already employed there I had to tell my current manager I was looking to make a lateral movement which didn't go over well. I was in a corner, either take the offer or go back to a department I didn't to be in.
