    I applied online – interviewed at Phacil, Inc..

    Interview Details

    I applied online after finding it through a web search and was contacted two to three weeks later by a company recruiter to set up an initial phone interview. The recruiter was 15 minutes late to the call and spent most of the interview seemingly trying to dissuade me from wanting to work there; he described it as an extremely intense work atmosphere in which nearly everyone is Type A and the leadership shifts blame onto others for mistakes. After the interview, I was no longer terribly interested in the position but did not want to shut the door on it. I was contacted for a second interview, which I was unable to make due to prior travel arrangements, and I figured that was the end of it. The hiring managers then reached out personally to interview me and offered me the position on the spot. They seemed much more capable and friendly than I'd been warned, and I decided to accept the position.

    Then approximately two weeks before I was going to move across the country to begin work, I received a call that the company no longer had the budget to hire any of the people they had, in fact, just hired.

    Overall, the interview process, the hiring process, and the "unhiring" process were incredibly unprofessional and I feel as though I dodged a bullet here.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Phacil, Inc..

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was a fairly brief phone interview covering the usual questions- why I wanted to work for Phacil, why I thought I was well-qualified, etc.

    Second interview was in-person, consisted of a brief (very pleasant) conversation with two higher-ups followed by a couple writing exercises. I can't give specific details about them, but they weren't particularly difficult. Then had a brief Q&A and the interview was over.

    Interview Details

    I was an incumbent on a contract that Phacil won. I didn't really have an interview as the Government customer had recommended me as an employee they would like to see be retained on the new contract. It was a fast three day hiring process since the government awarded the contract late.

    BD/Writing Position Interview

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Phacil, Inc. in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend of mine who is currently employed at the Phacil HQ office. He loooves his job, though he did warn me it is demanding but very rewarding. He also warned me the interview process is tough so I was prepared. The recruiter also advised me that there would be a writing test during the interview. I met with the HR director and the EVP and they were both very upfront about both the challenges and opportunities. I like a good challenge so the tougher they described it, the more I liked it! It seems like the kind of place where hard work is rewarded and people move up quickly. (The lady at the front desk told me she was promoted twice in a year!) I can see why people would be turned off by how quickly they move or how honest they are, but I actually appreciated that. I thought the writing test would be easy but it was really hard and I didn't do as well as I had hoped. They called me back into the room afterward and asked me how I thought I did and I was honest and told them it wasn't great. They agreed :) but gave me some good pointers on why. I'm sad I wasn't picked but I would work for Phacil in a heartbeat given the chance. They've got their stuff together and I love that in this economy a company still cares about its employees and is growing! Oh well...
