    Senior Management Level Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at PAE (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PAE (Yuma, AZ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    There was no interview other than a phone call to verify employment history and then a job offer phone call. I had to be very persistent in calling to follow up on the job posting and it took about two weeks before i got a call confirming there was a opening. Beyond that it was a drug test then another phone call then a job offer then the hiring process began. It was a very simple and easy process but was a bit lengthy and was never sure if i was getting the job or if that was a process for all applicants.
