    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pinnacle Technical Resources in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was originally contacted by a recruiter from a different company for this same position. I had a phone interview with the prime contractor (Unisys) and their customer (TASC). After a successful phone interview, I was asked in for a face-to-face interview. The face-to-face interview went well and I was presented with an offer from the other recruiting company which I found unacceptable, so I declined. Both the prime contractor (Unisys) as well as their customer (TASC) wanted to bring me in, so a different recruiter was obviously contacted in the background by Unisys. The following day I was contacted by Pinnacle Technical Resources with a better offer for the same position.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question posed was regarding Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy Preferences. It was asked of me to explain the differences between Group Policy and Group Policy Preferences and explain how each worked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was originally offered $60,000 annually by the first recruiter and attempted to negotiate a salary of $110,000. They refused to budge. Unisys obviously was interested, and contacted Pinnacle Technical Resources to attempt to secure the deal. Pinnacle asked my preferred salary and I remained at $110,000. I was told that the best they could do was $56.50/hr with no benefits.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pinnacle Technical Resources (Littleton, CO) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Communication was via email and telephone. Pinnacle's recruiter interviewed me in two stages, The first was directly with her. The second was with her, the site manager, and the assistant site manager. They asked a series of questions about my ability to write. My answers proved sufficient, and was hired. The new hire documents I filled out seemed excessive, with well over 50 pages of material. They also required a copy of my passport for the I-9, and that the document and my signature be notarized.

    There was negotiation. I was offered $11/hour.
