    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Unisys.

    Interview

    Did not have a formal, in-person interview. I was interviewed over the phone. It was somewhat casual and informal, almost like having a conversation, more than discussing my experience. I think they already knew they wanted to hire me because I was referred by a friend.

    Interview Questions

    • Will you accept this salary with the understanding that it will go up next year?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Unisys.

    Interview

    I met with the hiring manager and three engineers each individually. I don't remember the questions, but I liked the interview because the people I met with seemed curious and interested in what I do/did and were very open about the work that they did. And there weren't any tests to prove that I knew stuff, or technical questions, which I don't like.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any surprise quiz questions. Like, how do you repair x, or what do you do if Y?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation phase. The online application asks for salary.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Unisys in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online on a Friday and the following Monday received an email from a recruiter. We discussed my resume, why I was leaving my current job, and was given a more detail about the job. The recruiter sent my resume to the hiring manager and the next day was scheduled for a phone interview that Thursday. The interview went very well and within 10 minutes of ending the call I received a response from the recruiter saying that she just spoke to the hiring manager and she wanted to schedule a second schedule (interview as soon as the interview was over) with her and her team for the following Monday. 2 hours after the second interview received a call from the recruiter stating that I was being offered the position. Everyone has made this a comfortable experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions around experience, What would be your priority during our first days on the job, many questions around quality and how I would address situations.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Initial discussion with recruiter regarding salary. Recruiter informed me of range and I advised of desired salary. Recruiter sent along with resume. When offer was extended recruiter informed it was for the desired amount. No negotiation needed

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Unisys.

    Interview

    Worked through a recruiter for interview. Recruiter did a great job of polishing up my resume and preparing it for the interview. The interview process went very smoothly, answering the questions from the interviewees (3 in all) thoroughly with examples from my previous experiences; however, hiring manager read my shortcomings like an open book: commuting distance was going to be my major hurdle, over 2 hour one-way.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to commute to work from where you are at?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    It was a contract-to-hire position with an 18 month duration. Moreover, the position required a lot of overtime, which maybe a little inconvenient since the commute between work and home was over 2-hours one-way.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Unisys (Sacramento, CA).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two parts. First was a phone interview with HR. This was primarily used for screening purposes. The second interview consisted of a face to face with a Project Manager. The Project Manager mainly asks technical questions and probes information provided on your resume. The interview itself was straightforward with no surprise questions

    Negotiation

    It was my first job straight out of college right around the time of the 2008 collapse. I was grateful to obtain a job and had no idea how to negotiate

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Unisys in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was actually VERY fast for me. I received a phone call (cold call) on a Tuesday inquiring upon my interest in the position. After I agreed, they scheduled an interview for the following week. I had an interview early on a Monday morning, that evening they made a decision. It was quite incredible.

    A word of caution, if going through a third party (subcontractor) to Unisys, prepare to run the gamut. I had my start date delayed twice due to persons dragging their feet on checks and rechecks. After that, it was rather straight forward and quick to get started.

    Interview Questions

    • No curve balls, actually. Very straight forward. They actually respected hearing that if you don't know the answer to a question that you're not above "Googling it".   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay rate, to go perm with Unisys, was not commensurate with my experience, skills and education. After my subcontract was over, I moved on.
