    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SAIC.

    Interview

    The interview process was casual, friendly, and non-intimidating with this particular operating group of SAIC. I sat at a conference table talking with my potential overall manager; I then interviewed with who my direct manager would be. Questions were related to experience and personality; nothing out of left field. One of the most comfortable interviews I have ever been on.
