    Interview

    Series of phone screenings with logic and general questions.
    Then an in-person interview with two project managers and the business unit director. Some tough questions were asked, and the logic questions weren't too bad - obviously it is good to get the correct answers, but reason through the questions out loud, and you'll be fine.

    I applied for the job online and was contacted by a recruiter after a week for a phone interview.

I called him back and left a message. Finally, after a few missed calls, the recruiter scheduled a phone interview with the Senior Project Coordinator. It was a pleasant experience, but I was not called for a face to face interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at REI Systems (Sterling, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The phone interview last about 40 minutes with basic types of questions. The interviewer was Indian and I had to ask for the questions to be repeated a couple of times and/or just took a guess at what I thought was being asked. I was immediately contacted later that day to schedule a face-to-face. I was informed the face-to-face will consists of (3) separate interviews; technical, behavior and interview with actual manager?

    The building is 'dated' with no appeal. The technical interview was with a person they deemed as being very technical and lasted about 1.15 minutes. There was communication barrier where English was not interviewers first language. The interviewer stated a couple of times that my responses where not in relation to her question. Therefore, I adopted the approach of repeating her questions back to her before answering. I could tell this was annoying her but how else was I suppose to make sure I was responding accordingly.

    I had to wait for 30 minutes before the next interviewer arrived for the behavior questions. Just plain stupid ... I was seriously considering walking out at this point. Again, another Indian, but at least I could understand this individual. I did not have an opportunity to meet with Manager. I was told by recruiter that he would call and reschedule and/or step-up phone interview.

    The recruiter contacted me the next day to advise that the technical INTERVIEWER did not feel they should move forward. She felt I was lacking appropriate skills. I started laughing.... this really caught him off guard. Anyway, I have accepted a position with another company and could not be happier.

    REI Systems needs to be concentrate on its hiring practices with emphasis towards a DIVERSITY!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at REI Systems (Sterling, VA).

    Interview

    Pretty Straightforward. Applied through a job listing site. Recruiter contacted me and set up the initial phone screen. Phone screen was completely technical and was 1 hour long. The in-person interview was conducted by 2 software engineers and lasted for 2 hours. The interview involved answering technical questions, writing code and answering a couple of puzzles. All interviewees were very courteous and knowledgeable except the manager who was a little full of himself.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain Prototypal inheritance in JavaScript?, what are closures?, What JavaScript design patterns are you familiar with?
      Explain CSS box model? Which HTML5 APIs have you used?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offered base pay was way way below market value and what was agreed upon during the interview process. When I tried to negotiate they said I lacked certain technical skills that were required for the position. These skills were not asked for in the job listing or during the interview process. If I lacked the required skills, why hire me in the first place? I felt this was an underhanded attempt to acquire cheap labor and hence declined the offer.

    IT Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at REI Systems (Sterling, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Decent interview but I was not prepared for the logic test and it was a little nerve wracking answering those types of questions on the spot. I went through 2 phone interviews which were great and then I had one in person interview and I met with two people. I was told that one of the managers of the coordination department was unavailable to meet me but that a phone call would be arranged
    For the next day. They never called and I received an email a few days later saying that I did not get the job.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at REI Systems (Sterling, VA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had phone interviews with several leaders, human resources and recruiting. I enjoyed discussing the options and possibilities with all involved. It did feel a little disjointed as if there was no coordination on REIs end.

    Negotiation

    there really was not one.
