    I worked at BAE Systems USA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    BAE offered a competitive salary, lots of schedule flexibility, relocation pay since I moved there from a different part of the country, and paid overtime. I had to work 85 hours in a 2 week pay period to be paid for my OT, but after I reached 85, I was compensated for all of it (including the 81-85 gate). 9/80 schedule.

    Cons

    DC area is a lousy location. This is not BAE's fault, however.

    Interview Details

    A friend referred me. I was emailed by a recruiter who asked for my resume which I responded and gave her a copy to view. She informed me I would be a great fit based on my experience and wanted to have me call her since she was unavailable to contact me since I was deployed overseas. I called her and she explained to me the details of the position where I told her I was interested. She informed me I would have to speak with someone else who had had the final say where he asked me several questions...all of which were simple to answer.

    Interview Questions
    • None. He wrapped up the conversation with, "I have so many applicants, why should I choose you over others." I gave a detailed response as I know the true meaning behind that specific question and answered it accordingly. A few days, later, I was provided an offer, and the rest is history.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I already knew where the numbers were going to be and how they absolutely did not have any intentions on budging. I took it anyway thinking that the overtime hours would make up way more than the difference....until overtime hours were cut along with other privileges and incentives (vacation) that were diminished slowly but surely. After I departed, I was informed people's salary's were reduced even while they were deployed overseas; they were given the option to take the new reduced salary or return home to the sates and look for employment elsewhere or elsewhere within the company (state-side) employment was not any better.
