    Associate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Towson, MD

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at General Dynamics (Towson, MD) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I had been contacted by a recruiter and asked to interview onsite at the Towson branch. Upon arrival I was asked for wait at the front area by the receptionist. Not a big deal but they did not offer a drink and my wait was over 25 minutes. I was taken to a small room with 3 people. All of them were very unfriendly from the start. They began to ask me questions from a sheet of paper and argued against every answer I gave. Even ones that were clearly correct the kept pressuring me about my answer. I could not figure out why they were so rude and condescending or what their agenda was. They would not look at me, only look at each other as if they were all getting a laugh out of bullying me. It was by far the worst interview I have had. I still remained professional the entire time and even sent a thank you letter. However, it has been over a month and they never wrote back or informed me about the job. I am sure I did not get the job, but most certainly would have declined.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Santa Clara, CA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through employee referral and got called relatively quickly. Spoke with HR several times over phone, interview was on-site with senior manager. Apparently I was supposed to go through another round of interview with the engineers but it was over Thanksgiving week and no one was around, so I got offered the job with just the behavioral part of the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Entire interview was just behavioral so nothing really difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Didn't really negotiate.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Dynamics (San Antonio, TX) in September 2009.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me. We went over my resume. I sent my resume a PDF document. Later he asked me to change it to a DOC so he could modify it. I spoke with the a few more times. He covered pay rate, vacation and contract length. Asked me several inappropriate questions:

    1. Was I married (because of insurance he claimed).
    2. What year I graduated college

    Everything seemed to be going well but then got no further responses. No follow up call, no email. The recruiter also used a personal email for the whole thing. Perhaps it was a head hunter.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Williston, VT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was perfectly fine, they were ready on time, I met with three senior members and it was relxed and friendly. Afterwards I met with the hiring manager and talked with her for a while, she was nice and helpful. The problems came with their ability to follow up. I sent a follow up email a couple days later to no response. Waited a couple weeks and sent another, to no response. They never got back to me, even to say they didn't need me and that was very frustrating.
