    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TeleCommunication Systems (Greenwood Village, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Met with the supervisor of software development. The supervisor crossed his arms and immediately stated, "I against hiring a business analyst. The firm needs more software developers who will be reporting to me. This firm does not need a business analyst who will be reporting to the Director." This made me feel unwelcomed. When I asked questions about the job, the software developer supervisor repeated, "I against hiring a business analyst. The firm needs more software developers who will be reporting to me. This firm does not need a business analyst who will be reporting to the Director."

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TeleCommunication Systems (Seattle, WA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email a few days HR a few days later. Scheduled an inperson interview with the hiring manager and three other people I'd be working with.

    Met with the hiring manager. Had a great conversation about the position and what they were looking for. We went over on time.

    The second person was out of office, so we moved onto the next two people I would be working with. Could not get a reading from them. No facial expressions and they didn't have many questions.

    Lately I sat with HR to talk about the position and next steps.

    A week and a half later they followed up with me about the position.

    Systems Administrator I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Suwanee, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at TeleCommunication Systems (Suwanee, GA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    This interview was different than normal as I contacted a former employee of the TeleCommunication Systems Inc. for a position. I had worked with that employee in the past and was able to get in touch with the hiring manager directly. The interview was a single telephone technical interview that took approximately 45 minutes.

    The questions were very broad and would ensure that a seasoned system administrator would meet the position requirements. There were several scenario based questions spanning topics such as Active Directory, Windows Server administration, VMware, NetApp storage solutions, SQL databases and Microsoft Exchange Server.

    The position was for an OCONUS Systems Administrator I, which is a senior-level systems administrator working in Afghanistan. The most shocking part of the hiring process for those who have not been overseas would be the description of the work environment. The company states that you will live in a 5 x 8 ft. space, work in extremely poor work conditions, subject to indirect fire. While this may be the case for some positions, the systems administrators would rarely ever be subject to those conditions. If anything, the living and work environment are very hospitable and you rarely, if ever, would be in a dangerous environment.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a number of very obscure, detailed question that may not be relevant to a real-world environment. For example, "What version of LDAP is used in Active Directory?"

      Be prepared by reviewing certification practice tests or preparation books to get these minute details.
