Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
Fairfax, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology in October 2009.

Interview Details – Two telephone interviews and 1 in-person. The in-person was a formality where I was introduced to who I would be working for/with. On my start day, my reporting manager was changed and key people I interviewed with had already left the company. Company is very easy to get in to. Employee referral is always the best, but they also use a lot of recruiting companies as well.

Interview Question – Hypothetical questions as it related to project management methodologies.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Company offered me more than I was looking for, so negotiations were practically non-existent.

Principal Engineer - Software Interview

Anonymous Employee
Fairfax, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology in August 2011.

Interview Details – A technical recruiter contacted me via a job board website. Upon conducting an initial phone screen, I was scheduled for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was with a technical lead and the program manager. The interview was mostly a discussion of my past projects with no technical questions. The feedback was immediate (decision was made at the end of the interview) to hire me. The technical recruiter provided timely feedback on the status of the interview process and a decision was made quickly.

Interview Question – What plans do you have regarding career growth?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The negotiation was very simple: I am looking for $...We can only afford $...take it or leave it. The salary was above market average.
