    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I received a call from a MITRE recruiter asking me to come in for a meet-and-greet. The interview panel consisted of 4 individuals from two different groups within DNI / NCTC. The interview went really well. I received a couple follow-up calls over the next 3 weeks about how the group was continuing to evaluate their options, but I was their best candidate (which is code for we like you, but we're interviewing other candidates because we'd like to find someone just as good but for less money). Throughout this period, they kept me on the hook by re-assuring me of how awesome I was by saying they are simply trying to find the "right" job fit.

    Wait, did I miss something...you called me remember? This is the second time in 6 months I've been jerked around by MITRE. There will not be a third.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had two interviews on separate days. This first interview was with the department manager and three supervisors. 2nd Interview was with two Directors of the Department, more senior than the previous.

    Interview Questions

    • First Interview: They mainly asked for an overview of my experience and they spoke about the position and the gap they need filled. I realized that I was more qualified than the "supervisors" after they talked about their backgrounds and roles.
      2nd Interview: majority of the questions were psychological based. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt the interviewers were rude and had already decided they didn't want to hire me after the first handshake. I think they did not want to hire a racial minority.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MITRE in June 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted application and interviewed three weeks later. Pre-interview guidance and information very professional.

    HR pre-interview discussion covered specific benefits and asked my salary requirements.

    Interview was conducted by task leader (hiring manager), a peer-level task lead, and their boss. Discussed MITRE work and communication philosophy. Asked about my knowledge on specific aspects of the job.

    All aspects of the application and interview process were outstanding. I have never seen this done better.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MITRE.

    Interview

    I was recruited by the employer through email and phone, where I then set up a phone screening. That process just consisted of me explaining my background and why I'm interested in the position. I then got a call the next day about a 2-hour , 3 part interview. It wasn't very difficult, just your basic questions about your experience and why you'd be a good fit.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MITRE (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    We were supposed to have a phone call just to discuss our interests, to see if anything aligned. It ended with him asking me a ton of programming questions as if I were applying to a software position and him telling me that I should have reviewed before talking to him, when I didn't even know what I was applying to yet.
