    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KEYW (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Skype interview that lasted 30 minutes.
    The interview was at 10:30 AM their time and 8:30 AM my time and one of the interviewers had his head down and continuously turned the camera from him. I was asked about Operating Systems questions and my projects regarding it. Then I was given a classic coding problem. I will not disclose questions in respect to the company.

    I was then cutoff by them when I was asking them questions. Funny enough, that was when I was about to ask them about the culture and if they liked working at the company.

    Geospatial Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Andover, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at KEYW (Andover, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First I had a phone screen interview with an HR person. Next a phone call with a manager. Then they flew me out for an onsite interview. Parts of the onsite interview were unprofessional and hectic. It was essentially 5 mini interviews over a short time frame. Instead of informing me I did not get the job they reposted it on job search websites and informed me over a week after the fact.

    Imagery Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I met with two HR reps at a career fair that came to my school. I spoke to them and submitted my resume, and I was contacted later that day to set up an interview. The interview made me feel slightly underprepared, but mainly that was because I kept being asked if I had any questions, even after I asked them about six questions.

    The interview went fairly easy. First I had a quick phone interview and then they scheduled an in person interview where they mainly told me about the company and the benefits they offer, as well as the contract over the position. In the way of questions they mostly just asked what tools I have experience with; nothing intense. About a week later I received a contingent offer.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Meade, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at KEYW (Fort Meade, MD) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Very professional and well managed recruiting department. Interviewed with Technical Recruiter and received information about the company and its benefits. Met with Senior Management, Technical Experts and Program management. Very professional and quick follow up. Bear in mind practically everyone and their brother is banging on the door at every open requisition that hits the web so expect a very detailed interview. Your clearance is not going to be enough to get you in as they do not "warm body" their contracts.

    You will not need to negotiate. They offer fair and generous compensation packages to those they feel will help the company succeed. If the position you interviewed for does not meet your financial requirements they will look for those that will and call you back in.
