    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Jacobs in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had interned for this company the previous summer. Emailed hiring manager, was contacted for a tentative schedule, replied back, and finally was given a specific appointment according to my answers. They were very respectful of my availability. The interview in this case was casual because I had interned with them, but typically is a very process. They really dive in deep to experience, coursework, technical knowledge, scenarios, etc.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jacobs (Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Was made to wait outside while supervisor rudely walked past and just held his finger in the air as if to silence any questions I might have. Overall they were rude and condescending, neither supervisor had a degree of any kind. One had not even graduated highschool, GED of some kind I suspect.

    The interview hasn't happened yet but I will repost as I am only doing this to find out what kind of salary to expect when the offer comes to me. I really want to know what to expect when I get to the interview and I don't want to be blindsided by anything they throw at me.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Jacobs (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    I was overqualified for the position and came through a consulting firm, so not many questions. Rather I was told what I would be doing and when I should start. If you know someone internal with some hiring authority you journey is smooth and simple, probably one step or no step process.
