    Senior Subcontracts Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email to schedule a phone interview. This lasted for about 45 minutes and about 2 weeks later, I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview. The in-person interview was at McLean, VA facility and lasted about 5 hours. I spoke with about 6 people and gave a presentation. My presentation was essentially about my PhD thesis work and I presented to 3 people. After the interview was completed, I was sent a follow-up email stating that they would have a decision on my application "shortly" and then we could discuss how to proceed. I sent a follow-up email to the recruiter about 2 weeks later, and another about 10 days after that. I never heard back.

    Operations Research Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Good experience. Had a couple phone interviews with non-HR, non-hiring personnel as a screen. Then phone with HR, followed up by a half-day on site where I made a presentation and met with a half-dozen would-be co-workers. All of them were exceptionally nice and professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviews were conversational, but probed for functional knowledge of modeling and statistics, and did dig into techniques and methods a bit. For a true math/stats person the Qs were probably on the easy side. If you're more of a generalist or non-technical they were more moderate. Certainly nothing especially difficult if you've gotten through the initial stages I'd guess.   1 Answer
