Associate Member Interview

Associate Member
Fairfax, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SRA International in March 2013.

Interview Details – I originally approached them at an on-campus career fair. I talked briefly to the representative and was scheduled an interview for the next day. The interview was very informal and the representative seemed more focus on selling SRA. I was asked questions about my previous experience and what I am looking for in a company.

Afterwards, I received an email from an HR representative inviting me to an on-site interview at Fairfax, VA. Upon arriving, I was scheduled to have lunch at a local restaurant with two relatively new hires. The lunch was informal and we chatted about what SRA does, what they do, why I am interested, what role would I fit in at the company, etc. I was then scheduled for three interviews with more senior members of the company. All of the questions were behavioral or related to my previous experience. It seems like they are looking for someone who fits into their culture. All of the interviews were around 30 minutes long.

I was then asked to fill out an online application and have an additional phone interview with a senior member. After that phone interview, I was never contacted again. The HR representative ignored my requests for a status update. I did not receive compensation for travelling to Fairfax. I enjoyed the interview experience and liked the company, but was slightly unhappy that they didn't explicitly give me a final response.

Senior Engineer Interview

Senior Engineer
Bethesda, MD

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at SRA International in March 2009.

Interview Details – I knew somebody at the company from a previous job. He helped me find a job posting on their website that would get me in to an interview. I interviewed with three people and submitted some original material to show that I knew what I was doing. I got an offer and accepted. The whole process from phone call to first day on the job took about 5 weeks. It definitely helps to know someone on the inside.

Interview Question – Since I was coming from another contractor, I had to explain why I needed to change companies when the jobs were so similar.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It's a federal contracting job so the companies all pay about the same. The company made me an offer and I accepted.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at SRA International in November 2008.

Interview Details – The posting for a help desk analyst was found on a University student's job resource webpage, and it took over a month to get a call back for an interview once the application was submitted.

The interview questions were not tricky or suspicious, and the meeting lasted about 30-40 minutes.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Fairfax, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at SRA International in July 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online; granted interview; very nice people and work environment; offices were good and company seemed supportive of further training and career enhancement. In the end I declined the offer because there was nothing "special" about the job (lots of government work, culture is kinda bland) and it would have been a very long commute. So I stayed where I am.

Interview Question – Describe s situation with a past client where they were not happy at first. How did you handle the situation?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Too long of a commute
