Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Columbia, MD) in March 2014.

Interview

Was contacted to set up a phone screen time that fit into my schedule. Phone conversation was among several members of their IT leaders and hiring managers. They began with personal questions before moving into technical questions about skills I possessed. They were interested in the type of skills I had learned outside the classroom as these would differentiate me from other students at my university.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Towson, MD) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted directly by GDIT HR and was asked if I'd be interested in the position. I then went through an online application process that was a bit tedious. Once that had been completed I was able to meet with the hiring manager. The hiring manager and I hit it off right away. It was clear that the team had similar professional views and ethics. I appreciated the chance to explain why I was passionate about what i do and what my hopes for my career were. I knew within the first 10 minutes that I would take the job if it was offered. I was called back after my initial one-on-one interview and asked if I'd meet with the whole team. I think this approach is a great idea. It gives the potential employee a chance to see if they will fit in with the personalities of the existing team. We met in a large conference room which was well equipped and the team interview took a little over an hour, which is usually a good sign. I was offered the job officially 2 days later, with a contingent on funding. It took another 3 months for funding to come through for the position and I was actually able to come onboard with the company. That waiting can be frustrating but it was nice to know that the company valued my career and reputation enough to wait until they were sure the position would be a permanent one instead of bringing me on right away and possibly losing my job a month later when funding fell through.
