    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SAIC (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Recruiter . A security service send me a prescreening to fill-out, Scheduled for on site interview after 3 days.
    The receptionist at the door seems she was very tired of seeing candidates that come in and out for the interview. I was told there is only one interviewer on the interview confirmation email but I found 3 interviewers when I reached at the location. which I was not expected.
    They ask very simple questions. They were underestimating and didn't seems interested on the projects I did in college or my past work experience. Even-though the job description clearly mentioned 0 years of experience.
    The recruiter or hiring manager did not bother respond after the interview. They are shady and lazy . It is unprofessional to leave candidates hanging in this bad job market.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAIC (Tampa, FL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Well, I met the division chief, my boss. Then after meeting him, I met his deputy. Then I met with a senior program manager. And then I met a guy who was going to be my "wing man" on the overall program. We then all went to lunch. I then got ready to go to the airport and my division chief told me that I was hired. Basically, he wanted to get the reaction of the rest of the guys to see if they saw something that might make me not a good co-worker.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAIC (Charleston, SC) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Initially had to fill out multiple documents and forms, more than half due to background check and pre-authorization of minimal clearance level.
    Phone Interview was not technical ,more so of general understanding.
    F2F Interview was three to one and not with the program manager I was to interview with, but supposedly with would-be peers, co-workers. No one had a copy of my resume, nor knew my background. Within thirty minutes of questions and requests of explanations of my background, their conversation turned to movies, current ones, what I had seen (which I am not an avid movie person thus not current), then to batman movies. The lead questioner (the one who took over the questioning of all three) actually posed the question: Which batman movie do you like best? Which batman do you consider yourself to be and why?
    (Seriously? I kind of laughed) Serious... since I did not play along the interview was over. I met with the program manager a few minutes later who didn't even have a chair in their office for me to sit in, they gave me their chair and only told me what the interview process was.
    In a second attempt with this firm, the initial phone interview was scheduled with another program manager and when the phone interview came, two people whom worked for them, called me, asking me database and infrastructure questions as they were technical SMEs, then asked me if I used MS Word, PowerPoint, Visio and Project.
    I will never consider, recommend not apply for an SAIC job again, hopefully it’s just the weirdness of Charleston.
