Easy Interview


The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SAIC (San Diego, CA) in March 2009.


Spoke to 3 different managers 1:1 in series. Questions about experience, education, and engineering knowledge. Managers had different personalities but were all easy to talk to.

Was able to negotiate slightly higher pay. There is little room for negotiations since salaries are generally set by position within a range of no more than +/-5,000.
