    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (General Dynamics) in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was very quick. I applied and received a call from their recruiter. The next day I had a very detailed interview with the hiring manager, the technical lead and the VP. I thought I did well and we found several points were my experience matched their needs.

    Interview Questions
    • There were some technical questions in regard to .Net that I should have known, but wasn't expecting. Those technologies were not listed in the position requirements. An example was about POCO.
      I was also asked about SSAS. Not in my repertoire even though at my current job we do a lot of analytic work with Allegro and in house software. It must not be that good.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (General Dynamics) in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The questions were pretty standard. The company's HR department is a bit disorganized. I got there, ready to meet the hiring manager or director and there were issues with my paperwork. One would think that those tasks should be ready to go when the candidate arrives. They finally met me and the job is in an industrial shipyard, but the position I was looking at was in the office. The office was laid out well. It was not some cubicle hell, as many other defense companies tend to be.
