    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at SAIC (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    I did not do a standard interview. I was hired by a hiring manager I was in a Sun Solaris class with. After two days he offered me a job. After that he found out that Lockheed would not allow him to hire me, as I worked for them, as there were a sub, so he searched until he found another division who needed my skills. I did an interview with 6 staff, but had a offer in the mail box when I got home that day.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SAIC (Washington, DC) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Key leadership contacted regarding the skills and expertise that i represented. Further investigation required a series of interviews with department having the needs that i represent. Negotiations with internal procurement and other adminstrative personnel to work through paper trail required and signatures at various levels. The divisions between groups and the locations in working with people - which of these 4 people do I call and ask -or do I call all of them.

    Interview Questions

    • Inernet and company identification was difficult to connect with the correct group so an e-mail and access to the company information was limited. Then once this was set in place a periodic expiration constantly (bi-monthly) was required to maintain an identity. So all paper work had to be submitted again.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Described in the "Most Difficult" section.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at SAIC (Arlington, VA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about a day or two after posting my resume in their database. After I talked with her and applied for the position officially, it took the hiring manager less than an hour to decide that they wanted to bring me in for a personal interview. I met the hiring manager and the next day they came to make me an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    There were a few reasons I declined: 1) The benefits were less comprehensive than my current ones. 2) The salary was less than I wanted. 3) I was looking for a more senior role with more responsibilities. 4) The other developer I met that would've been on my team seemed less than interested in speaking to me. He barely poked his head from behind his computer screens to say hello to me. He barely even spoke to the hiring manager when she asked him a question. Busy or not, if you want to impress a potential candidate, be prepared to be friendly.
