    Federal Solutions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Basis Technology (Herndon, VA) in August 2014.


    The person conducting the interview was intelligent, but he had no experience in the federal or IC market space, nor did he have any appreciable engineering skills. I think the mis-match between my education and skills and his may have been a bit intimidating for him. During the interview it came out that the firm has been in business for 20 years, but it has only 100 employees. I would not have interviewed with him if I'd known that in advance. My bad for not doing my due diligence. Now that I've checked in on Glassdoor after-the-fact, I can also see from the reported salaries that they only pay peanuts. I've learned my lesson: next time I'll check in with Glassdoor first so I don't waste my time.

    Interview Questions

    • At the very end of the interview, as I was rising to leave, the interviewer exclaimed, "Oh, one last thing." I expected him to ask my salary requirement. He asked, "So, what do you do for fun?" I was a bit stunned by the irrelevance and oddness of putting the ice-breaker question at the end.   Answer Question
