I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at SAIC in July 2010.
The whole interview process was very professional, however SAIC is not very fast on getting back to you. The interview was a phone interview with three employees asking questions that were related to the work they are hiring for and your past experience. Questions focused on your past real life experiences and how they may relate to the current opening.
There is limited negotiation regarding. If you ask for a higher salary, they may not offer any more than a few thousand dollar adjustment. It's best to offer justification on why you deserve a higher salary. A lower Salary can be offset with relocation allowances even if they state there is none. It's much easier to get relocation allowance as this money is paid out of a different budget. If you ask you'll likely get it.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at SAIC in October 2009.
Simple interview process once they actually contacted me. The phone interview was very general and asked questions about my resume. The 1:1 went more in deal on the types of experience and tools I have worked with in the past. The recruiter had a general understanding of the job I was looking to receive.
