    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your experience using SQL? Have you ever tested software before?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    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

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Phacil, Inc. (Arlington, VA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Interview was very through. Open and honest. I felt the company really wanted to get to know me and I appreciated their willingness to take time to offer me the opportunity. I met the HR Hiring manager, VP of Operations (now the President) and several other senior managers. This was impressive as it showed me this was a company that really to time to carefully select it's employees. That I mattered and was important enough to meet with an executive for a lower level management position.

    IT Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average 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.
