    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SAIC (Alexandria, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process went very smoothly and the interviewers were very knowledgeable. My resume was reviewed prior to the interview and they came in with specific questions regarding my skills and experience. This was not a canned interview. It gave me a good sense of the company and the people I may potentially work with/for. I answered no to the question “Did you get an offer” because the position was offered to me however; I have not accepted at this time as I have not received a formal offer letter yet.

    Proposal Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SAIC (McLean, VA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Everything went really well. I was very impressed with SAIC. They told me they would make a decision the day of my interview. The next week I was told I was one of two and after that there was no communication from them. It's pretty rude to leave someone hanging with not so much as a "not interested".
