    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAIC (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Recruiter responded to my online application, conducted phone screen. Was brought in a couple of weeks later for interviews and then brought back a few weeks later for last round of interviews. Friendly interviewers, casual environment. I got conflicting answers about why the job was open and how many openings the team actually had. The VP I interviewed with talked the whole hour and only asked me 1 question....I declined the offer because the process took too long, the inconsistent answers regarding number and reasons for openings and because some of the interviewers were clearly fishing for information (sometimes outright asking) about how things are doing at my current company and some of the examples of the team's accomplishsments were things that I did 5-10 years ago other places.....it left me with the impression that this group doesn't have ideas of its own and in some regards is pretty far behind the times

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SAIC (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Everyone was very professional and polite and had a general interest in me. My HR rep was very willing to help. Interviewer had to ask certain questions according to protocol, but then went their own way soon into the interview. It was very relaxed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAIC in January 2017.

    Interview

    Delivery manager was late to the interview and was combative during the whole process. Kept asking questions and then argued with every response. Was evident this individual didn't understand the technology stack they were hiring for and kept boasting about how great of an environment they had and how much "cool stuff" they were doing. Cool stuff doesn't mean anything if you're going to ask someone what text editor they prefer to use and then attack that person's choice. Interviewer described lots of movements between teams and said I should take an entry level job in any department and then jump around. Did not sound like a healthy work environment. Not a single question was asked about what was in the job description.

    Interview

    Interviewers and the interview process was totally professional. Great handshakes (A lost art in most venues), and each interviewer was very knowledgeable and forthcoming with their expectations. There was an extensive review of the subject matter as well as theoretical "what ifs" scenarios built in to test my responses and how to handle those situations.

    Launch Safety Quality Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAIC (Kennedy Space Center, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me first, to give a breakdown of the position and run some preliminary things by me(base pay, location, confirming my resume information) and then asked me when I could do a follow up interview with a program manager and another higher up. Actually set up the follow-up interview the very next day which was not your typical interview.

    I was living 10 hours away at the time so they suggested a Skype interview. We couldn't figure out why our Skype connection wasn't working, so it turned into a conference call type interview. We did eventually figure out the Skype problem and ended the interview via video.

    The two who interviewed me were absolutely amazing. Very nice and easy going. Fun and excited about their work. Easy to speak with have a genuine conversation with. Interview in all lasted about 45-55 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The people I interviewed with were truly amazing, the program manager actually got me a couple of thousands of dollars a year increase and a relocation bonus. I didn't even ask for it, but the PM was so gracious and kind. Such an amazing gesture.
