    I worked at Blue Canopy full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and bonuses. Plenty of work in the federal gov't consulting space.

    Cons

    Hard to get them to approve training - they wanted you to use your vacation days to do training that would directly benefit your work at the company.

    Not a lot of opportunity outside of the federal consulting space. Once you are on one client, hard to get any work on another one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more benefits and perks to employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Blue Canopy.

    Interview Details

    HR doesn't always provide accurate details. Many people end up feeling swindled. Get promises in writing and understand when you can use certain benefits (floating holidays, training budget, etc.).

    Interview consists of a talk with a recruiter, a technical phone screen, then an in-person interview with 2 or 3 employees (at the same time). Each team has their own style of interviewing. If you are not a good fit for one team, they may pass you onto a team they think would be a better match.

    There are no standard interview questions, so the interviews are mostly winged. Many times HR will not send your resume to the team until the day of, so interviewers don't usually have time to review your history.

    Questions cover your background to see if you just click buttons, or if you know what's technically happening.

    Tips:
    If you don't know something,admit it. After an interview its common to hear 'He didn't know that much, but he was honest and enthusiastic. We can always train him"
    Try to show your enthusiasm for the subject.
    If you don't know the correct answer or give a guess, ask for the correct answer. It shows you care. If you get another interview somewhere else, you'll know the answer.
    Dress to impress.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard technical questions for my industry.
      Know definitions, common problems, how to check for those problems, and solutions to fix the problems.
      Know common programs and tools. If its on your resume, its fair game.
      Have a list of sources where you get your technical knowledge.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    HR is stubborn when it comes to salary negotiation. Just be firm and know your worth.
