Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at SAIC.

Interview

Started early based on my arrival. Young professional did the interview and was very cordial and seemed uninterested in what was being discussed. As if something else was on his mind. Primarily discussed what the position is and will do. Only time I could discuss my qualifications was to interject into the conversation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at SAIC (McLean, VA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    I initially met with the company at a Campus interview for 30 minutes and it was quite casual. Questions were asked about how one would "teach" another and about my senior projects and group work. Behavioral questions were asked about how I went about to excel in school.

    The 2nd (final) round interview was held at the office in McLean, VA. I met with 4 different people for about 30 mins each. Each was in a different position and asked about my resume and classes. The interview wasn't too technical and focused on my thought processes and group skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAIC in February 2012.

    Interview

    I knew someone on the inside so I was able to get my foot in the door and bypass HR initially. The first interview I had was with the person I knew and a manager. It was an informal discussion over lunch. They were mostly interested in what I was looking for along with a little discussion of my experience and qualifications. A couple of days after that I was called by an HR person to set up a more formal interview. That interview was at SAIC with four other people. It was still fairly informal, but I was asked more specific questions about my experience and qualifications. Some of the questions were a little difficult only because they were related to areas I'm not very familiar with. It seemed they were trying to figure out where I would fit in the team as opposed to grilling me on what I know or don't know.Two weeks later I received an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The HR person asked what my salary range was when he set up the second interview. The offer they presented came in higher than I was expecting and I did not try to negotiate higher as I didn't feel it would be worth it for an extra $1000.
