I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Robbins-Gioia.

Interview Details – Referred by a friend. Great trust placed in friend. Hiring process was very professional and positive. Treated with great respect. No technical interview, but, had worked with a current employee who knew my skills. The trust placed on the employee who referred me showed the level of trust that manager had/has for staff.

Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Senior Technical Consultant
Alexandria, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Robbins-Gioia in December 2008.

Interview Details – Interviewed with 3 individuals, two from immediate working group, one from senior management; follow-up interview panel consisting of three senior staff (due to salary). Process was professional, polite, pleasant. Questions were straightforward, to the point and relevant to the job. No trick questions or attempts to throw me off base. No personality, technical skill or other tests. In all, one of the better experiences I've had in interviewing.

Interview Question – None; interview was thorough regarding technical project management and project management, but all questions were well within the boundaries of the discipline(s).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation per se; company couldn't afford salary so the difference was split into a signing bonus for the first year with catch-up to my asking price after that. (Standard procedure).
