    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Alion (Norfolk, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was approached in December on LinkedIn by an Alion recruiter about a software engineer position in Norfolk. I responded back to them but I did not hear back from the recruiter for almost a month. The recruiter called me to setup an interview with the development team on Monday the following week. I did some due diligence on them using this site after I spoke with the recruiter and found out that this company was poorly run. I went into the interview with nothing to lose. After the interview, I sent a thank you note to the two gentlemen I spoke with and never heard from this company. It's been two months (and counting) since the interview and I don't expect an job offer. If by some sense, semblance, miracle or God's Grace I get an offer, I will very likely decline because I work for a very stable company that I really like.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Alion.

    Interview

    Short phone interview with HR, mostly to clarify information and arrange second interview. Second interview with a more senior manager. BEWARE: THEY OFFERED THE JOB, I MADE PLANS WITH MY FAMILY AND THEN THEY RESCINDED THE OFFER. This might be a good place to work but seems sketchy. Yes, I am disgruntled. You would be too, if it was you.

    Negotiation

    They offered the job, I accepted and they then rescinded the offer. I recommend staying away.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Alion (Fairfax, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Total of three interviews, finishing with a panel interview, in which the Director really tried to sell Alion to me. Apparently, they had already made their decision before I arrived, and they were overly enthusiastic in making Alion sound like the greatest place since sliced bread. It turned out not to be, whatsoever.
