    The process took 10+ monthsinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter. After several phone screen interviews with him, I was asked to meet him via a web-cam teleconference. After passing all this, I was invited to interview with the customer. In the end, they decided not to hire anyone at all. The process was a large waste of time.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling Heights, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling Heights, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    After the referral, I was called in for an interview within the week. Had a 1:1 interview with the section manager, then a 1:1 interview with a tech lead. Both asked standard interview questions, and there were no technical questions asked at all (besides things like "do you know about xxxx?"). The interviews took about 1.5 hours. I heard from my referrer that both people were impressed with me, and asked HR to start the hiring process. This is where things went sour: HR dragged their feet for 2.5 months, coming up with many different lame excuses, such as not being able to verify a job I had even though I provided a name and contact number. I'm not sure why they were doing this, but it was definitely beyond frustrating. Finally an upper manager got involved, and within a week I was given the job.

    Contract Specialist Interview

    Interview Details

    Internal interview. Only one round, unlike my initial hire, which had two. Panel of four. Asked four of the typical behavioral questions, plus some other questions. They look for Situation, Action, Result - the sheets they fill in have those boxes specifically. It helps if you say the part you are speaking to when you give your answer. Was over an hour in length.

    After answering initial posting, it took several calls to get in touch with an HR Rep. They are quite structured, and even though the position was still open it took a while to get an interview. I was later interviewed by phone, then in person with team.
