    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at CSC (Columbia, MD) in November 2012.

    Interview

    They found my resume on dice.com and called me. They set up a 1 hour phone interview which was all about determining if my personality was a good fit and also that I had all the skills they needed. Then they scheduled a 1 hour face-to-face. I was in and out in 45 minutes. It was awesome that they didn't grill me for hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CSC (San Jose, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Had a phone screening followed by a full day onsite screening. Had 3 rounds in the onsite screening and a HR/Manager round.
    Interviews are very client specific, kind of makes sense as people usually work with the same client for a long time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at CSC (Washington, DC) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and received a call two days later. I interviewed the next day. I was interviewed by all the developers and the project manager at the same time. The interview wasn't very technical. They told me what they were working on and asked me a bit about my resume. They didn't ask me silly questions like "explain the Factory pattern" and "is java pass by reference or pass by value." It lasted about 45 minutes. It was very relaxed and was more of a back and forth story exchange.

    Interview Questions

    • I always have a bit of problem in interviews explaining myself clearly and coherently. Blame it on nerves or social anxiety or whatever. There were not difficult technical questions which I found surprising. Most interviews are these gotcha situations which honestly never have much significance to real life software developer situations. It was pretty relaxed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wanted more vacation time but they declined and offered me an extra week's pay instead.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CSC (Cambridge, MA) in October 2008.

    Interview

    I switched from a subcontractor to CSC. I was a known quantity. All requirements were met through observed work performance.

    In general, interviews are normally rather detailed, many people are involved, perhaps a technical test will be required.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions will involve technical details of languages and best practices. CMMI, ITIL based questions are also likely.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was unable to obtain a 3rd week of vacation to match my previous employer - so I asked for 2% more income to cover loss. It was granted. I took an additional week a year off without pay covered by the increase.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CSC (Indore (India)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process is good but i did't understand the shortlisting process. They conducted 3 rounds of interview I clear all the 3 rounds and after completing 2 rounds of technical discussion and 1 round of managerial round HR came with some strange and shocking result that I didn't clear the 1st round then how come they processed me for 2nd and 3rd round. I don't know the politics behind this. At-least tell the genuine reason why the are not processing for the final HR round after completing the 3 rounds of interview and telling the initial level not cleared.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic java questions and the configuration level questions of spring and hibernate plus project and process   Answer Question
