    Technician III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Scientific Research (Norfolk, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After speaking with a recruiter, a phone interview was set up. During the phone interview we chatted and spoke about my experience and gauged each other's personalities. A couple of days later I received an email from the recruiter setting up a lunch interview for the following week.

    During the lunch interview the interviewer offered to pay for the lunch, however only ordered a coffee himself, so I felt a bit strange about getting anything. Again, we chatted, talked about experience, the environment that I would see with SRC, and so on.

    After the interview I was assured that it went well but someone else was more qualified for the position.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scientific Research (Charleston, SC).

    Interview

    I went through several phone interviews before driving down several hours to an interview in person. The company paid for me to stay at a nice hotel for the duration of the interview. The interview lasted more than four hours. I thought everything went pretty well. (Someone working there got chastised for taking me to a bathroom in a "secure area," but that wasn't my fault.)
    The manager promised to let me know whether I got the job in a day or two.
    A couple of days went by after I got back, but I didn't hear from anyone. I e-mailed the HR contact I had, and no reply. I called the HR contact several times over the next few days, just trying to get some kind of response.
    I never heard back from anyone. After all the trouble they went to, someone at least could've said "Sorry, you're not what we are looking for." That was so unprofessional. I have no idea what I did wrong; I showed up in my best suit and I can't remember any faux pauxs or poor answers. I have successfully interviewed many times at other firms. In any case, the least these people could've done was give me an answer. What a giant waste of time...
