    Supply/Logistics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at DynCorp International in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online via the DynCorp International Website at the end of December then I received a call after about 4 weeks from a DynCorp Recruiter who sounded positive about me and went over the particular job I applied. She asked if I was experienced with certain systems and certain things that were required with the job and I said I was. She sounded positive about me and stated everything about this position to include the location (country of assignment) which I thought was great because it was the same location as my last deployment I was on while in the Air Force then she covered living conditions there, the pay, benefits, and EVEN a departure date. It almost sounded as if I was about to receive an offer then she stated the "Supply Manager" would be conducting another interview with me. We then discussed my military experience and she looked at my DD Form 214 and the experience I placed in the computer and she noticed my rank and asked if I had "lost" a stripe and I said yes then she asked why and I gave her a very general description because it is something I was embarrassed about. She then said it would not be a big deal because it did not sound like anything "criminal," a small mistake, and I was discharged "HONORABLY" with a retirement pension. She asked me to update my resume showing my experience in those places that were required for this position and I did that then sent it later that night. Two days later, I was at work and had a missed call from her stating she needed another copy of my DD Form 214 scanned because the one I had uploaded to my profile was missing the last page so I went home and grabbed my copy then scanned it from work. I called her to let her know I did that and she was thankful and stated her manager was impressed by my resume but they were also expressing "concern" over my lost stripe and the thing that caused it and I was wondering why she did not say that in the voice message she left about my DD 214. She said it would be best to craft up a memorandum stating that and I did that and I gave a detailed explanation on what happened, why, and even stated it was my fault. I also enclosed some memorandum for records from former supervisors and co-workers containing positive comments about me which were written before I received my final punishment for my act. One day later, she thanked me for that and stated she sent them to her supply manager and still sounded hopeful about my employment there and still sounded like this would not be an issue. Less than a day later while I was on lunch at work, I received one of those usual e-mails you receive from jobs where they say, "I regret to inform you, we are pursuing other qualified applicants for this position"..... Yes, this was just an e-mail. I then called her and she claimed the Supply Manager thought long and hard about this but just was not comfortable with my explanation on why I lost that stripe ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO and went and "consoled" with their "security manager" and they concluded this probably was a bit more than what I wrote, instead of thinking I may have had a "hard" commander, and I retired at 17 years due to the force reduction cuts in 2014 at 17 years and they thought it was "suspicious" I got out three years before my 20 and an incident like that should have kept me in there. I explained to her I was forced to retire because of the "cuts" and this act I did in early 2013 was a factor but NOT the direct cause or my commander would have recommended discharge back then and that's why I could not stay until 20. I also stated I retired and had an HONORABLE discharge and never lost my "Secret" security clearance over this and said they could ask anybody. So, I was qualified for the job, more than qualified but they made me ineligible for this position because of "theories" about something in my past I was completely honest about, I have no criminal record, I did not lose my security clearance, and have an HONORABLE discharge and will receive a retirement the rest of my life. Sounds like they were "fishing" for something there and they sound pretty inept and I really hope they get some people there with some sense and this was ridiculous. They claim to have a close relationship with the military or Air Force so why don't they have "blue suiters" in the AF they could have consoled regarding me instead of jumping to conclusions? Why didn't they bounce questions back to me to get some insight on this? This was ridiculous and DynCorp uses "recruiters" and not the normal HR people and it's rare from what I hear, to get a call from a recruiter and I figured they should have had all this stuff straightened out before my first call..... The recruiter also said she hopes I apply for something later on (not sure how long from now) and could have a chance getting that but I'm not sure if they'll still ask the same BS questions about my past act in the military.

    Interview

    First contact with the company was via a e-mail from a senior recruiter after I had applied approx. 2 months before. 3 days after I responded to the email answering a couple of questions I received a call from the recruiter asking me a couple of affirmation questions. Also received a call from the hiring manager in theater affirming some prior work experience. So from the first e-mail to the last phone call the process took about 4 days.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DynCorp International (Kandahar (Afghanistan)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The recruiter goes based off of your resume. They ask you if you are familiar with SARSS. That is almost the only thing they care about. Not too many questions or than that. After the interview, the recruiter will send your resume to the hiring manager where he/she will decide if they want to hire you. (Takes about a few days) then you will receive and offer letter in your email. You sign, send back and everything else is too easy. Start your medicals and you're pretty much off to in processing in Dallas Fort Worth
