    Electrical Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SAIC (Camp Pendleton, CA).

    Interview

    Initially I was given a phone interview. Then a one-on-one and then an oral interview conducted by several employees. Upon hire, I was then subjected to a week of sexual harassment and other training modules - more than any other company I have worked for, probably as a result of past issues that have plagued this company. On-the-job training followed oral testing and a series of practical application demonstrations.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation consisted of an offer, my counter offer, their acceptance and then mine. It was a very routine process.

    Senior Systems Administrator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at SAIC (San Diego, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    They contacted me and set up a phone interview, and I talked to the SAIC PM, a couple of SAIC employees, and a couple of representatives from the customer. I had kind of an unfair advantage in having worked in this environment before and was recommended very highly by some people the SAIC folks knew, so this was more of a casual review of my skills and the customer's needs. I never did an in-person interview and had an offer after a couple of phone conversations.

    Interview Questions
