    Program Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Company fumbled my travel arrangements, I had to pay for the entire trip up front. Interview was good, interviewers raved about how much they were impressed with my background and how much they liked me, I never heard back from them again. I tried to get reimbursed for travel and received the run around for two months. They always have excuses about why I hadn't received the money and always placed blame on another department. They were terrible!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Exelis in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager did not ask any significant questions. The internal psychologist conducted the interview which I thought was strange. He read fro a canned list of questions. They no longer use this technique but instead try to get hiring managers in the work area as well as neghboring work groups to conduct interviews.

    Very good interview. The hiring manager knew exactly what he was looking for. My experience and background, alone with my responses were helped me get a foot in. Having prior military experience also paid off a great deal, as I was was looking for a position as a government contractor.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Exelis in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The fact that I had been with the previous contractor meant that the carryover manager was receptive to my being hired on. It was all about emails and my obtaining background checks and getting a drug test and a physical. The trick is that you have to be sure that everything is done in a timely manner.

    Interview Questions
    • There really isn't much in the way of either difficult or unexpected questions. It's more about just being sure that the HR department has everything current.   Answer Question
