    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at General Dynamics.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position through a posting on Indeed.com. A few weeks later, I received a call from the program manager of the group I was interested in manager. The communication flow throughout was horrendous, with missed interviews by members on their side, an HR team that was never onboard with what was happening, and a salary-negotiation nightmare from Hades.

    Interview Questions
    • "We work under a strict contract with the federal government, and HIPAA guidelines are strict. How would you ensure that you can manage your team to maintain these guidelines while keeping up employee morale?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Nightmarish. I made my salary expectations clear at the onset of our discussion. When I received the offer letter, it was substantially lower than what my expectations were. I then declined the position. The company adjusted my salary to be inline with my expectations.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at General Dynamics.

    Interview Details

    Company contacted me about my resume being a perfect fit for the position and implored me to apply. I was brought in for an interview and spoke with a prospective boss, their boss, and a potential colleague. The interview lasted about 2 hours and was pleasant. About a week later, I called and they said they were still interviewing and had many candidates to speak to and they would let me know the following week, early in the week. The recruiters could not be reached at all for several days until finally, they picked up the phone Friday afternoon to say the position had been cancelled in the most aloof and uncaring voice they could muster.
