    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at General Dynamics.

    Interview

    To work on a government contract you should first have your Security+ CE before even applying. Once you get an interview they will ask you a few basic networking questions. Know the layers of the OSI model and basic subnetting. The golden answer for any question you don't know is that you will "Google" it. They don't expect you to know everything they want to know if you have the ability to find the answers with your background.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions are pretty easy if you have done any networking. They key is if you are willing to work shifts.   Answer Question

    Interview

    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?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.

    Interview

    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.
