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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at DynCorp International (Fort Worth, TX) in November 2011.
Done through a third-party recruiting company. One hand does not know what the other is doing, so lots of duplication.
- A "stump the dummy" quiz that no one can possibly answer. Answer Question
All offers are "take it or leave it." Do not believe you will ever receive the Management Incentive Bonus unless you abandon all sense of principle and independent thinking.

I applied online – interviewed at DynCorp International in November 2011.
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.
- No difficult questions, however their requirements for a physical and dental exam can be a hassle if you are unemployed or uninsured Answer Question
No negotiation since is a contract job

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at DynCorp International (Melbourne, FL) in October 2011.
I had very little interview time because I worked at the home office. People skills were short and sweet. The office told me I was hired and I would get a packet telling me what my job consist of and 3 months later I got it.
- Can you stay away from your family for 3 months at a time was unexpected because to me it was something you should already know. 1 Answer
None it was this is what you get and you leave this date. Which 6 weeks later I did.

Submitted resume to a friend who passed it along to DynCorp Human Resources. Received a call from Project Controls Manager a few months later who interviewed me for an overseas assignment. Received a call from Human Resources a month later and prepared all the paperwork for working overseas.
- After discussing my background and qualifications the hiring manager asked how soon I'd like to come to work. 1 Answer
The amount I was offered was fixed for person's of my skills and background due to DynCorp's bid as a contractor for the US Gov. I had researched the pay of my position prior to the job offer, so was not surprised by the rate.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at DynCorp International in September 2011.
Very simple. There was a phone interview. They asked for samples of your work and experience with office software. The last item was the face to face interview with a very high strung yet brilliant VP. She knew exactly what she wanted, and would not settle for less.
- The question about mistakes in the past. Sometimes it is very hard to admit your mistakes. 1 Answer
