    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Engility in September 2015.


    Applied on-line after being referred by a friend (not someone who already worked for the company). Didn't hear anything for several weeks and then got a call for a phone interview. Phone interview was less than 30 minutes and I must have been the person they were looking for (or the only person qualified) because I was offered the job. No trick questions; it was almost entirely focused on education/training/technical background and past experiences.
