    Corporate Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at DynCorp International (Falls Church, VA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews followed by several weeks without hearing anything. I was contacted for an onsite interview at their corporate headquarters which was held on April of 2012. I was told by the recruiter that I did very well and they had one internal candidate to interview and they would let me know. I heard nothing for several weeks and finally contacted the recruiter who said the position was on hold. During this time I submitted my expense report for my meals and some other travel-related expenses. After resubmitting my expenses two more times over four months I gave up and never received my reimbursement. Thankfully air, hotel and car were direct billed. I also never heard back about the position. I did see it reposted several months later. I was disappointed that I never heard from the hiring manager again which I would expect if the position was on hold, or get an official rejection not to mention reimbursement. This spoke volumes as to the type of company DynCorp might be.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing stood out to me as being a tough question. Mostly about my past experience.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at DynCorp International in November 2011.

    Interview

    Online application, (takes about 1hr to fill all the details) then just waited, it took about 6 months before I got a call. I already have given out on all overseas jobs since I got the same experience with at least 4 other companies, however after the first call everything was easy.

    They gave me a list of documents they require (passport, DL, military records and others) plus send me to get a physical and dental examination, which I a pay for it but the company reimbursement upon hiring.

    Most of the process was done online, however I got the support of the hiring personnel on the phone thru the entire process.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions, however their requirements for a physical and dental exam can be a hassle if you are unemployed or uninsured   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation since is a contract job
