- Accepted OfferPositive Experience
I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Arlington, VA) in August 2012.
Process was swift it began on the phone then in person. I was refereed by a former co-worker who happened to be on the contract. I could tell the Program Manager did not know anything about strategic communications or marketing. She did have a military background and was in the medical field. She was highly educated and was very methodological her process was conducted like a research project.
- Nothing difficult Answer Question
No negotiation necessary salary was way above what I was targeting. I was able to take pre-planned leave before I came on board. I was however required to check emails and participate in meetings over the phone.
- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took a week – interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Arlington, VA) in September 2011.
The hiring process was very personal. I met directly with the person who would have been my manager, as well as her manager. Everyone was very honest and straightforward about the company's expectations, the skills required to do the job, the position responsibilities, the salary, etc. They were open to discussing compensation options as well. The interviewers asked specific questions regarding my experience doing exactly what I would be expected to do at General Dynamics, which was a true test of my knowledge and experience (rather than your typical "what's your biggest weakness" type questions). It was a refreshing interview, somewhat challenging, but it felt tailored to the position and the time spent answering direct questions seemed very worthwhile.
Reasons for Declining
I originally accepted an offer, but my current company counter-offered a promotion to a position in a location that was more desirable.
