    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at 22nd Century Technologies (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    After reviewing my resume a staffing firm reached out to me and requested that I apply for a position with this firm. I should have known something was fishy when they kept calling me to make sure I would attend the interview. I interviewed with a consultant for the position. The consultant was arrogant and his questions were pointless. I eventually interviewed with the manager and it went ok. Not very professional though, as she was taking notes across my paper resume that was just handed to her from the consultant. I believe I only interviewed with her because as the consultant was exiting our interview she happened to walk by in the hallway. I think the interview was a complete waste of time as it appeared they do not know what they really want out of the position. It appears this company has grown in government contracting due to its small disadvantaged business status but now that they have grown past that stage and can no longer use it as leverage, they are having a difficult time winning profitable contracts. Low balling can work competing with smaller firms but large companies have a larger capacity for picking up this type of work and low balling is not as effective. They must now compete based on depth of their managerial skills which appears to be lacking. After doing some research I realized this firm has a horrible reputation as an employer. No wonder the recruiting firm kept calling.

    Proposal Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at 22nd Century Technologies (McLean, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My impression is they have a strategy that seems quite deceptive. I applied for a Proposal Writer position for an IT company named Mission Services, Inc. A few days later, I received a call from a person representing 22nd Century Technologies who requested a phone interview for what sounded like the same position. Since the company name didn't sound familiar, I asked her to email me the information. I looked at both company's websites and the job description was identical. I set up an interview for 3pm the next day. The following morning, I received a voicemail from a person representing Mission Services, Inc., requesting a phone interview for the Proposal Writer position. I called her back and asked if the two companies are connected. She clarified that they were, however, I found it odd that she wasn't aware that someone else already scheduled my phone interview. At 3pm, I received a call from the 22nd Century Technologies representative, asking if I could reschedule because the interviewer is stuck in a meeting. Fortunately, I visited Glass Door to review feedback from staff at 22nd Century Technologies. The overwhelming number of detailed negative reviews were incredibly telling. It seems as if 22nd Century Technologies is hiding behind another company's name to list open positions and disguise their poor reputation . I canceled the interview. Thank you, Glass Door, for saving me time and further frustration!

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was having a person from 22nd Century Technologies (a company completely unfamiliar to me) ask that I schedule an interview for a job I had applied for with a company named Mission Services, Inc. Both companies represented themselves as IT firms, and don't appear to be head hunters.   1 Answer

    Very short. In fact it seemed to overly concern them that I was asking questions about benefits and compensation matching.
