    Technical Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Camp Pendleton, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camp Pendleton, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SAIC.

    Interview Details

    Initially I was given a phone interview. Then a one-on-one and then an oral interview conducted by several employees. Upon hire, I was then subjected to a week of sexual harassment and other training modules - more than any other company I have worked for, probably as a result of past issues that have plagued this company. On-the-job training followed oral testing and a series of practical application demonstrations.

    Based upon my past experience, SAIC offered me the opportunity to represent the US Army as an EVM ANALYST for all contracts for non-it products. I interface with the DoD PARCA on EVM performance monthly and DoD records the problem contracts. As this representative, the US Army improved between 30% and 50% per month.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cape Canaveral, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SAIC in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Take into account it was an internship position, but the interview process was undertaken nonetheless. Conducted face to face with two representatives as well as having 3-4 additional personnel on conference call, a variety of questions was asked in order to properly place me based on the skills I provided and the positions they had for offer. The two in-person representatives asked me questions relating to the regular HR-related material in order to gauge how I would function within the work place and with co-workers, while those on call asked more technical questions pertaining to my mathematical capability and fluency with computer software. They did ask me to describe past projects I had worked on that pertained to my particular field of study and to possibly explain what I did and why I did that project, in an effort to "sell" them my project if you will.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Camp Hill, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at SAIC in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is pretty standard. You are called to a face-to-face meeting (if you live within the area) after review of resume. Standard interview questions are asked such as why are you interested in this position. Why are you leaving your current job. Technical questions are then asked that are applicable to the applicant's experience and the position.

    Interview Questions
    • None. I was a transfer from another division but still had to interview. As someone who sat in on interviews in the past I was able to navigate the questions successfully.   Answer Question

Pros: “It's a place to work where they give you money in exchange for your time, so that's something. There are (presumably) a lot of opportunities to move around.” Full Review
