    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at System Planning Corporation (Arlington, VA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I was first interviewed by telephone, and then brought from California to Virginia for the one-on-one and group interviews. The issues of the corporate culture presented during my interviews were not based in fact. There is actually only one medical insurance provider and not "several" as I was told. Additionally, there is no room for advancement at SPC, since everyone is "pigeon holed" into a particular category from the day they start until the day they depart.

    Interview Questions

    • How many years of experience do I have in satellite systems research?   1 Answer
    • Do you know anyone else who might be interested in a position with SPC?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I would encourage those who now consider applying for a position at SPC to first read the posts on this website, and others, before making any decisions to join the SPC work force.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at System Planning Corporation (Arlington, VA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    It was a two-stage process with an initial phone interview that acted as a screen to verify credentials and competency. The second part was an on-site interview at the office with 8 or so employees of varying levels of experience. There were no specific questions just probes to insure I understood the type of work that they do and my familiarity with the industry.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Initially I was offered a very low salary and explained it was outside my expectations. After the significant bump it was still slightly below my desired level and asked for another increase which was denied.
