    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sotera Defense Solutions (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    I was called after submitting an application on the company web-site. The phone interview seemed very appropriate, not over the top stressful but not too casual. I was asked general questions about some of my experiences as per my resume, and then drawn toward topics within the resume that pertained to the job I was interviewing for. I came to realize that I was being considered for a position on a contract in which Sotera was not the prime, but a sub. The position was one of not many that Sotera had on the contract, and each was highly sought after. At the conclusion of the phone interview, the interviewer told me he wanted to get me on the phone with the prime PM that was running the contract. We did that, and the rest is history. Spoiler alert – I got the job.
