    Interview

    Parsons human resources reached out to me and asked for my availability for a phone interview. The interview went smoothly, with several questions about past work, experience, projects, and classes. Additional questions were on basic programming. It was concluded after giving me the chance to ask questions of my own.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation.

    Interview

    On campus interview after career fair. Expected a general, behavioral interview but it was a technical interview. It started off with going over my resume, then started asking simple technical questions to more sophisticated ones. I wasn't asked to actually code anything, but I was asked to explain the algorithm that solves the problem as well as time efficiency.

    Interview Questions

    • Open ended, but simple questions like "what is an operating system?" were unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not ask if I can negotiate. I was ok with the offer and I just accepted it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Parsons Corporation in October 2016.

    Interview

    Highly informal. The entire process consisted of one interview outside my school's career fair, in a courtyard. Standard interview fare... we analyzed hash table operations and average-case and worst-case scenarios, as well as the two main ways hash tables are implemented. Also talked about other algorithmic concepts at a very high level. There was no whiteboard, nothing, just a conversation on mostly algorithmic analysis. I got an email two weeks after this interview/conversation with an offer.
