    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chantilly, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at TASC (Chantilly, VA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the principal who was the manager/supervisor of the position being interviewd for. There was no structure to the interview; the interviewer did not formally introduce himself/herself or provide any kind of opening statement/remarks. I felt the need to begin the interview & did so by discussing my background, qualifications, & interest in the advertised position. The interviewer asked several job-related questions, did not refer to any notes or written materials nor did he/she take any notes. All-in-all it wasn't a bad interview, just not what I am accustomed to after sitting on the other side of the table for over 200 interviews. I was told me that I would hear back from the Talent Acquisition Dept later in the week re. a potential job offer as it related to the interview.

    Information Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at TASC (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Basically we sat down and talked about my resume and qualifications. I qualified for the job, but when we talked about salary, it was 4k less than what I was making now. He said that was the best he could offer so I turned it down. The following week I got an offer from a different company that was 2k over what I was making now so I accepted that offer and started working soon after.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at TASC (El Segundo, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the job online. I exchanged several emails with human resources to coordinate interview times, and then met with the hiring manager for half an hour. I was already doing the job at another company, and TASC had won the government contract away from the company that I was working for. The hiring manager seemed enthusiastic about my background. The human resources manager called back and said that TASC wanted to hire me. However, they wanted to offer me the same job I was doing at a 30% pay cut. I declined. I have heard from several coworkers that they have had a very similar experience with TASC wanting them to take a substantial cut in pay.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at TASC (Chantilly, VA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was primarily a character interview, with some technical aspects included. I was submitted through a referral process via someone I had worked with previously, and met with my future manager and two developers who worked for him. I was asked mostly questions pertaining to my technical background, projects I had worked on, and standard character questions. I had actually brought my computer to show a project I had worked on, which I believe helped me in the long run.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at TASC (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Multi-phased...detailed, many levels, in person and telephonic. Had to exert a great deal of patience. The process was a screening, presentation, in person interview to include board members. It was very detailed but i got the feeling they weren't sure what they wanted in one candidate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at TASC (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Two people, face to face. No need to wear a suit and tie, but slacks and a collared shirt will be expected, as that's the standard work attire for computer professionals. Nothing out of the ordinary. If you've been prior military or on a government contract before, you'll fit right in and have a comfortable, constructive conversation

    Interview Questions

    • What makes you more qualified than other potential candidates for this position?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They provided a written offer, to which I submitted a counteroffer, and then they submitted a second offer, which was accepted. Typical meeting in the middle of two extremes.
