    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SAIC (Huntsville, AL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    A day after applying I was contacted by a recruiter who asked me if I had and preferences in location or job role and then asked when I would have time to schedule a phone interview a few days later. No technical questions were asked, only went over experience on the resume and was explained what the job would be about. A few hour later I was informed they would like to do an in-person interview and flew me out to tour the job site and meet potential supervisors. No technical questions were asked and I was briefed more on the project and had a casual conversation about my personal background. An offer was made a day later.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. I was lucky to be one of few of my skill-set, and the manager had already expressed interest in hiring me. I met with his boss who basically gave me a summary of the company and its values.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at SAIC (Huntsville, AL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was led into a darkened room. The interviewer asked software 101 classroom questions then instructed me to write code on the white board. The interviewer was the software lead with very little experience and only a couple of years in his career. The darkened room and absence of professional courtesy was evident of a lesser company and not the high professional standards of SAIC.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SAIC (Huntsville, AL) in October 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely comfortable and helpful. The interviewers were approachable and friendly. They asked questions that really took the approach of finding out who you are and what you are capable of. This was very much unlike the interview process I had gone through with other major software/IT companies.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a leadership position you were in and a problem that you were able to overcome.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me a package that was above what I had expected, so in the current economic environment I didn't feel like I had much of a position to negotiate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SAIC (Huntsville, AL) in July 2010.

    Interview

    After applying for two software engineering jobs with the company via their website, an SAIC recruiter called me to see if I'd be interested in interviewing for a position. He read me a lot of information with a lot of acronyms related to the position. He handed me off to someone in HR who sent me a few electronic documents to complete. I looked up the position the recruiter called me about, and it was not one of the positions for which I'd applied, so I'm figuring they're hurting for people to fill a new need.

    I went to the interview, a group interview, and there were something like 12 to 15 of us in a large conference room with refreshments--snacks, drinks. The facility is quite nice, but the work would be performed at a customer's site, and they warned me during my interview that it was crowded.

    Half of us were sent into a second room to interview with other SAIC employees. I interviewed at a table with two SAIC developers currently on the project for which I was interviewing. The room had about 6 or 7 such tables. They seemed nice and told me about the position. Then we went back into the conference room and were briefed by HR and talked amongst ourselves while the second half of the candidates went for their interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would you want to work on this project?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The benefits are rather poor, frankly. The salary offering was decent, but there is little way to have much work-life balance given that all of your sick time comes out of your vacation pot, which is insufficient for someone with several years' experience. Also, the recruiter seemed a little too enthusiastic when he called to follow up, and my interview itself was almost too easy. All smiles and no tough questions. There's some kind of desperation going on there.

    Went very well. Nice, relaxed interview with friendly prospective management staff.

    Very simple really. I asked what the job would pay, they told me, and it was $10,000 more per year than I was currently making so I was satisfied.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SAIC (Huntsville, AL) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I was sought out because of a referral by a previous intern. I was first contacted by email and given details about the job, continued on to a phone conversation to further discuss details with senior management, and then we set up a phone interview date. In my phone interview, we discussed my resume and relevant experience, and I was allowed to explore the company further and its applicability to my field of study. It was a very enjoyable process, and I enjoyed all my interactions with the company's employees.
