    You are always learning through the callers, in house training, always someone problems solving, and a nice group of people to work with and learn how to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank the workers’ and appreciate them more often when you receive letters of appreciation from the callers and our government customer. Have more open discussions about solutions and what they and management could do better to improve work environment and lunches for encouragement. Listen to the suggestions and have discussions about the pros and cons of the suggestions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at American Systems.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process begins online where you turn in an application for the open vacancy. The application is sent to their headquarters in Chantilly, VA. The HR team reviews the application to see if it meets the job requirements and then forwards it to the line manager who will be managing the open position. If she or he likes your resume they will tell Chantilly HR who will set up the interview. Interviews are done in person. After the interview you will be notified by phone from Chantilly if you received the position.
    Unless you work for corporate headquarters all positions are government contract positions and all availability is subject to the contract.
