    Solution Architect Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sevatec (Chantilly, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by their recruiter via email which led to a phone screening by HR. HR set up a phone interview with the VP the position would report to. Following that call, HR called back to schedule onsite interviews and determine my salary expectations.

    On site was interviews were about 30 minutes each with the same VP, another Solution Architect and two other executives. I got the distinct impression one of the execs, who had recently joined the company, was trying to warn me off, as he repeatedly talked about how the company used the right phrases, but actually didn't seem to understand what they needed to do. Got the impression there is a lot of political infighting and some resource problems. Ultimately they spent far more time talking about themselves and the company, than asking me questions. Seemed to be trying to sell me.

    I left with the impression that things were very positive then....crickets. I reached out to them a week later and was told they were finishing interviews and would be in touch. I lost any interest at that point.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sevatec in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for a software developer position, and decided that Sevatec could be a good fit for me.

    Overall, the interview process was unprofessional, and I got the impression that employees at Sevatec disliked their jobs. The initial step was a phone screen with the recruiter. This went ok, but when I asked about why someone would want to work at Sevatec, the recruiter gave me a generic answer about "good coworkers", making the company sound very unappealing.

    After the phone interview, I got an onsite interview scheduled, but things went downhill from there. The interview was cancelled at the last minute because two of the people interviewing me were "sick". Several days later, I got an email saying that the position was no longer available, and that there was another position that would be a good fit for me. I declined, and decided to terminate the interview process.

    Business/Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sevatec (Fairfax, VA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Process started out great. HR was professional, conducted the phone screening. Then scheduled tech interview. Kept me engaged very well.
    But the in-person interview was a totally different story. From the start it appeared they had a candidate already in mind and the interview was just a formality. In an office building with beautiful interview room we were seated in deep club chairs and it was very hard to sit straight. One interviewer was seated like he was ready to watch a movie(I half expected him to excuse himself for popcorn from the vending machine). The other, a lady, was sitting on the edge of the chair looking waiting to end the interview from the start. I tried sitting on the edge, then tried to get comfortable by scooting back, finally chose a middle ground looking obvious I was uncomfortable, but it didn't seem to bother them as they were anyway planning on ending the interview ASAP.

    I had quite a lot of experience but I had no chance to explain because the questions were very vague. The interviewers were unprepared.

    HR person was super professional from the beginning.
