    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at DynCorp International in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    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
    Negotiation Details
    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 through a staffing agency. The process took 2 months - interviewed at DynCorp International.

    Interview Details

    Mostly they were detail oriented questions like, "What is DHCP," or "What does DNS stand for?" Nothing too hard--I already met the hiring manager a year prior, so he knew my qualifications.

    Corporate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Falls Church, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at DynCorp International in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Passenger Support Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at DynCorp International in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called me at work one day and asked if I was interested in a position that my resume matched for. Honestly, it wasn't a difficult interview at all. My resume matched what he was looking for and a few answers about the specifics of my job history satisfied his requirements and he offered me the job right there.

    Having sat in on many interviews with this company in the years since I was initially hired, many manager's here aren't looking for future leaders as they already usually want to hire those from within. Unless you are interviewing for a leadership position, emphasize your desire to just "do your job" and don't make a lot of your aspirations. Your time to shine will come once you've gotten your foot in the door.

    Interview Questions
    • He was interested in the dates of my employment, probably to fill in my work history in his recruiting packet. But I didn't know them all off-hand. I'd have that stuff readily available.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't able to negotiate at all on the pay-rate as it wasn't for a management position, but I did get them to buy me a ticket out of Baghdad.
