    I have been working at Exelis full-time


    the H.R. business person B.W was extremely personable and put me at ease, as I was very nervous since this was my first interview in quite a while.
    Unfortunately for me a did not get the job, but B.W. did call me back to let me know this, which speaks volumes of the interest that Exelis has toward people.


    I only wished that during the follow-up call back to let me know the position had been filled, that B.W. could have been more willing to be open with what her perceptions and insight she might share to assist me when I apply for future positions at Exelis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From all of my perceptions of the company and the people I met during my interview at Exelis, they showed a great concern not only for their employees but expressed their contribution and 'giving back ' interest into the community, especially toward American VETS, and the fact that I received a call back demonstrated their genuine concern for my interest as an applicant. This is definitely an organization that I am very interested in working for in the future. Richard Mneke

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone call informing me of their interest in bringing me in to be interviewed for the position and asked if I was generally interested. The in-person interview was very casual, although I feel that was because the person that interviewed me, stuck an instant connection, and liking to me, which took a lot of the pressure off of the interview.
