    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CSC.

    Interview

    This job is part of the unadvertised job community - either you are recalled, someone from another contract is selected, or a friend / family member of the bosses is offered the job. Not being ugly - just the way it is.

    Interview Questions

    • Per above, questioning is directly proportional to your background situation.
      If you are from another contract your questioning will be the most challenging - stop by the shop(s) and talk to your future co-workers and they will tell you exactly what to expect based on who will be interviewing you and whether or not they already have someone selected for the job.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CSC (Albany, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through their web site and got a phone call from recruiter. They didn't even email me when I'm available to talk! Then scheduled video interview - they said it is a technical interview but they wanted to see my face over camera, which is weird to me. Found that recruiter sent two meeting appointments, one is right time and the other is wrong time so let her know one is wrong. Seems like their HR is not organized.

    Before the interview time, HR said she cannot hear me when I talk though headset microphone - I asked her what she need to check in their video meeting tool. They asked me to video interview though their tool but she didn't know how to use! And interviewers didn't try to fix their meeting tools and called me through cell phone.

    They speak through speaker phone so I had a hard to understand what they are saying. They asked all kinds of syntax related questions. Its ok to ask that kinds of questions but they spent all time to ask this kinds of keyword questions. Seems like they are interviewing kinds of staffing company not a big tech company. I realized that I don't want to continue interviewing with them and learned to be patient against rude behaviors.

    And next day, I got email from them I was not selected.
