    Senior Management Level Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PAE.

    Interview Details

    Company uses the most common current process of an on-line recruiting system which makes you wonder if your submission will even get reviewed. Fortunately I had an acquaintance who was able to make a personal connection for me to get my resume noticed so I finally got a call for an interview. Otherwise, I might not have ever gotten the change to meet with them. After going through the entire process, I was hopeful that I would get an offer, and the hiring manager was great at staying in touch with me. However, due to internal company politics they apparently decided to bring a friend from Lockheed into the position instead of me. Sorry I missed the chance to join the company.

    Glad that you asked! I was hired even though I had no correction's expereince. A few months into my contract, I was fired. A very weird thing. I think it was becuase I was a better employee than the others and management were afraid I would take their jobs. I think PAE stands for a Pathetic American Employer.

    On line application; telephone interview; Psych test; two week pre-deployment training with two separate interviews one of the weeks. Very laid back process. Only a monkey would not get a job offer.

    Negotiation Details
    The recruiter and onsite manager must have never talked to Corp; each gave me two separate offers. Then when I was presented the actual contract offer, it was even higher than what they offered me. I kept my mouth shut and just signed the contract as fast as I could. I guess they never noticed. Their mistake.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PAE in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    complex, long ,no negotiation. Either accept or reject with conditions after offer. You need to keep copious records of everything, get ready to resend multiple times, and to be patient. It is a government regulated contract and the government and subcontractors are disjointed. Individual personnel are usually very good, but the rules and regs. and documentation is sometimes illogical.
