    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at UCS.

    Interview

    Two-step interview: First *phone* interview (recruiter) was more informal with the purpose of learning about the candidate personally, initial judgement of fit-to-team/manager; Second *phone* interview (project manager, program lead) was a formal professional exploration of candidate's related experience, temperament in directly relate-able circumstances, goals and future development, etc.

    Thank you for posting, however, we don't have an office in South Africa. It looks like you interviewed with UCS Solutions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UCS in August 2008.

    Interview

    The phone interview consisted of talking with a couple of members of the on-site team. Questions mostly dealt with past experience and did not get terribly deep technically. Asked basic experience questions (what technologies have I worked with, etc.). Was then brought in for an in-person where I had a three-part in-person interview with the team, the program director, and the agency director. These took a total of about six hours. Within 7-10 days of the in-person, I was offered the position (including relocation package).

    Negotiation

    Pretty positive, but assertive. Be prepared. Do your homework and be able to justify what you want. I used cost of living calculators and salary data for the type of position I was applying for to get what I wanted (which I did).
