    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (Sterling Heights, MI) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I was brought on as a contractor during a hiring boom for a new contract. The interview consisted of a 20 minute phone conversation with the hiring manager, and was very easy. They were basically hiring anyone off the street who said they could code.

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

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (Sterling Heights, MI) in January 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
