    Quick call from Director of Quality systems. Chatted about me and goals, where I see myself in a few years. No technical questions. Was picked from a medley of candidates because resume stood out. Was told about how other candidates looked the same on paper, what not the case for myself and the few others that were chosen to interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview

    I applied online and waited about three months to hear anything about the position. Once I heard back, things moved pretty quickly. I had a phone interview and a request for office interview. I was busy finishing my semester and next day got a verbal offer. It took a bit longer to get a written offer as HR tends to move pretty slow.

    On campus interview after career fair. Expected a general, behavioral interview but it was a technical interview.

I wasn't asked to actually code anything, but I was asked to explain the algorithm that solves the problem as well as time efficiency.

    Interview Questions

    • Open ended, but simple questions like "what is an operating system?" were unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not ask if I can negotiate. I was ok with the offer and I just accepted it.

    Interview

    Q and A interview with four employees in separate interviews. Pretty traditional questions. Nothing that made you think hard. They were not able to provide much information on the actual product due to the nature of the program.

    Interview

    There will be 1 or 2 rounds of interview, depend on your interview panel. Both will be on-site. The interview probably in a hour. For junior position, there is an expectation to re-train you after you get hired, so they will mostly asking about the skills that you put on your resume to clarify how deep you know about that field. Technical interview question will mostly be typical work day problem, rather than programming-challenge problem.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation (Cherry Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    They discuss about the functions of the job per-say, they asked if I could work overtime and on weekends. They tell you about the uniforms, jackets, shoes and other supplies they give you. You are asked to fill out a employment questionnaire. I filled out an application while my vehicle was being inspected. I didn't accept the job, because I already had one. I was released from the job six months later. And so, they called me and asked if I was interested in working for them. I accepted, went for training for two weeks after I passed the state test and then. I started working and making good money, and best of all. "I met a lot of people".

    Interview Questions

    • There were no hard questions, the only difficult thing about this job was not knowing enough of the functions of the vehicles. In two hours they read to you all the questions and answers of the test, that contain questions regarding the emissions, and functions of vehicles. This you have to memorize during your lunch break. And then, prepare yourself for the state test.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation in December 2014.

    Interview

    I was approached shortly after I applied online for a phone interview. Time changed twice which was okay; however, if I had not been as flexible, not sure if they would've followed through. After initial interview, I was told there would be a follow on. Over two weeks later, finally got another call to set up a face to face interview. Again parsons rescheduled. Overall I wouldn't recommend the company.
