Interview Details – Hiring is very network centric. The best hopes of getting an interview are by knowing someone who can refer you and timing when the job is ready to be filed. Be patient as positions are often offered as contingent on a contract win. Contracts can sometimes take up to a year to be awarded.

Negotiation Details – First offer was above my expectations so no negotiating was needed.

Interview Details – A recruiter first confirms your qualifications, then schedules a meeting with management. I met with two people, the first person would be my manager, and the other person would be my lead on the contract. They asked questions about my experience and how I like to work as in by myself or with a team. They also explained the company philosophy. After interviewing with them, I met someone from security to go over my clearance information. Last was HR who talked more formally about the benefits and the next steps.
Interview Question – How do you handle difficult people? View Answer
Negotiation Details – They made an offer which was more than I was making before so I accepted the offer.

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at TASC in April 2013.
Interview Details – One of the most ridiculous interviews I've ever had. I was interviewed by a succession of four different people. Each one asked about my software development skills. The HR rep came in at the end and said, "the interviewers all liked you, but they felt you might be better as a systems engineer. What do you think of that?" I reached out to my resume sitting on the table in front of us, turned it towards her, and pointed to the top of page 1: "Objective: Senior Systems Engineer." She looked a bit flustered and mumbled something like, "Well, OK, then."
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TASC.
Interview Details – I submitted my application to job reqs posted on the TASC website. I first had a phone interview for about 30 minutes. The interviewer was friendly and spoke casually. It was more of a conversation than a straight question/answer interview and he mostly told me about the company, asked me a few questions about what I was looking for, and told me he thought my interests were in line with what they had to offer. They flew me out for an interview with 2 different groups within the company. Met with my phone interviewer first, then went through a few more individual interviews of about 15 minutes each, give or take. I was interviewed by the line/functional manager, and the leads for 2 different projects that I was being considered for. Everyone was friendly and the interviews were all more of a conversation than a firehose of questions. Basic things like tell me about your experience in this area or that area, what are your interests, etc. I was given the opportunity to ask any questions I had, and felt very comfortable with the whole process.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TASC in January 2013.
Interview Details – This was my first interview as I prepared to retire from the military. Low key setting at a northern Virginia office, following a resume review phone interview with the recruiter. Two interviews back-to-back in about tow hours, one with the project lead and the other with the technical lead. Some questions about my specific experience with IC information assurance documents, my experience with DoD IA processes and policy appeared to meet their concerns but I would have been expected to quickly come up to speed with IC policy. I was happy with what I heard about how they planned to develop personnel, and I am continuing to look at TASC for positions.
Interview Question – Asked about experience with IC information assurance policy. View Answer
I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at TASC in June 2012.
Interview Details – The interview was for an internal corporate position to move into a different career track in program management. The position would have required an increase in my commitment of time by 20%. Also, the customer for this contract would require both program management and technical leadership within a technical specialty that is only peripherally in my resume.
Reason for Declining – Although I am qualified, I decided to decline the offer due to personal and family obligations that would not be well served and would interfere with the increased demands on my time and attention.
