    Interview

    The interview process was very direct, quick, and straight-forward process. I was reached out via email from the Director and was invited to come in for the in person interview following the recruiter screen. Another senior on the team was sitting in on the in person interview to assist in the interview process. From there, the results came in within the day and I was offered a position.

    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Phacil, Inc. in April 2018.

    Interview

    Overall bad experience. I was approached by a recruiter for this position, I didn't apply until after they approached me. I ended up not getting the role even though I've done software testing before using SQL, as I didn't have SQL experience they said. Now how does this make sense? I learned SQL in college and used it on the job before for a little over a year. So I do have experience. And you all approached me not the other way around. Just really really really silly. Really I think what happened is the recruiter told me it paid 30 an hour and person interviewing me didn't like how I was told that and wanted to low ball me is the reason I didn't get it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Phacil, Inc. (McLean, VA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was easy. No trick question. it went much like a conversation. They ask technical questions that applied to my previous job experience. I talk to HR first and then had a technical interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Phacil, Inc. (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR (warm and fuzzy interview) with a face to face interview with "technical twenty questions". The one thing to note, is that the federal Clearance process (Public Trust) took longer than the hiring process, so you spent a month or so in your "old" position waiting for the clearance to be finished before being able to give notice. This applied even though i held a higher clearance from another federal agency.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Phacil, Inc. (Chandler, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process was painful. They contacted me a month after I applied for the job. By that time I have reviewed their requirements (they wanted a lot) and indicated that I'm not qualified for the job. They insisted I talk to their hiring manager. After the conversation with the hiring manager I got invited to the in-person interview (panel 3 people). There was no response from them for a while, so I started calling their recruiter every week to see what the decision was. A month or so later the recruiter told me that the position was closed and they didn't hire anyone. Then another month later they called again to see if I want to come in for the final interview as the position re-opened. By that time I already had a job.

    Interview Questions

    • The panel presented me with various scenarios (technical and behavioral). How would I handle working long hours and learn and support programs outside of my area of expertise.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Vague description of position. One member of the panel appeared desperate and eager for the person to start right away. This person also seemed not to know the day to day detailed job functions of this role.
