    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Fairfax, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a job opening and the following week I was there for an interview. The recruiter said I was only meeting with 1 person when I was actually meeting with three who all came into the room at different times. We sat in the conference room while they drilled me with questions on SQL, GREP commands, and very vaguely based OOP questions. It was like walking into a lion's den. It was the worst interview experience of my life 60% because I sucked 40% because they sucked. I felt extremely uncomfortable as soon as I stepped into the room.

    Regional Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Fairfax, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview then a round table interview. The whole process was a sham as this was an internal interview. I was already an employee and should have been in the top tier all things considered. But the new hiring manager picked the guy that he had worked with at a different company. All the other candidates figured it was a show but held out hope that this was just a coincidence. Then we got asked if we would support whoever the eventual pick was DURING the interview. Since there was only one outsider, this made it clear the hiring manager was already planning on hiring the outsider.

    Interview Questions
