Application

I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at SAIC.

Interview

The interview was before both the manager and the seasoned employee (not human resources). Mostly the interview was them explaining what the company does and the benefits of working there. I do not remember the specifc questions that were asked outside of why I would be transitioning out of the military and if I would be willing to perform other duties besides that which was listed on the job write up. They needed a person immediately and therefore also asked when was the soonest I could begin work. After the group panel, I later had a phone interview with another employee who would be the one I would be working more closely with. Because the work involves team work, it was important for them to see if my temperament would mesh with their group.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SAIC in July 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for the company and how can you contribute?   Answer Question
    • Give an example on how you met a customer's requirement and added value to the mission.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SAIC in October 2009.

    Interview

    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.
