    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at SAIC (Dallas, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward as it was an internal move. I did interview with the manager and entire team. It seemed intimidating at first, but they were a good team. I learned a lot about the job through this process and this made me excited about the opportunity. So it was a good move.

    Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at SAIC (Fort Knox, KY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process was handled over the phone, over a period of two days. My interviewers were serious players and were able to provide a wide breadth of information about duties, responsibilities and expectations. I have high praise for the recruiter, who was very transparent and helpful throughout the entire process. Timelines and expectations were negotiated, established and met. I was never waiting for information, and received constant feedback and responses to all questions. Be warned: you'll have some work ahead of you after accepting the offer and before your first day. But you'll have your recruiter on hand to help, and in my case the recruiter was great.

    Interview Questions

    • I won't provide specifics, but expect a series of general questions along with some technical questions to establish your knowledge set and communications skills. If you're a solid communicator and match your job description you'll probably be fine.   Answer Question
