    Systems Administrator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unisys (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    The process was pretty streamlined and efficient. From the time first contact was made, it was 1 month until I started. That included the phone interview, face to face interview, pre-on-boarding process, and time to leave my previous company. I thought that the people selected as part of the interview process were the best people for it, as I work directly with or under the people I interviewed with. There were no extras that have no connection to the position as some of the other interviews I have been through.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked: "How will you balance your workload here with you outside commitments and school, if necessary?"   Answer Question

    Junior Systems Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Unisys (Reston, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. More of a behavioral interview. The main part of the interview that everyone has to pass is the drug test. The hardest part of the interview process was dealing with their drug test agency that schedules your appointment. The agency messed up twice with my appointment.

    Procurement Manager II, Reston, VA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Unisys (Reston, VA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Initial contact was with Sr. Subcontracts Manager and Chief Procurement Officer. The interview was not difficult. We exchanged information regarding the contracts and subcontracts industry. Both the manager and the CPO explained the PM II position and really was trying to sell me on coming aboard. We discussed salary.

    Interview Questions

    • Immediately heard back from recruiter in Blue Bell that interview went well and they wanted to move forward with the background and OFFER process. I filled out the forms. I waited a week and contacted the recruiter regarding the status of the background and position. I was told my background wasn't completed and that the hiring manager was still interviewing and would make a selection the next week. I know that a background check only takes 3-7 days. Today, I received this e mail: "We have extended 2 job offers that have been accepted for the Procurement Manager II roles. The Reston hiring team enjoyed meeting with you and appreciate your skills, knowledge, and abilities. Your resume will remain on file for future opportunities there." I find their recruiting practices to be deceptive. Most companies have you fill out the background forms if they are going to make an offer, this was not the case with me. Word to the wise, don't waste your time filling out the forms unless you are sure you are going to be offered the position.   Answer Question

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Unisys (Reston, VA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Had three in-person interviews, mostly because I had lots of questions. Boss was extremely accommodating and most of the people I met with were very intelligent and polite. One was a jerk, but she was also very new and probably trying to prove herself. Have been nothing but impressed with the caliber of employees here. Very pleased with the company.

    Interview Questions

    • How many words are in a good sentence? This was asked by an absolute idiot who was rude. This is also incorrect and she insisted this was correct, despite having never been a writer professionally in her life (her admission). Oh well, just remember the answer I guess.   6 Answers

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer letter, when it was provided, did not cover the components we discussed earlier. When I asked about the differences, I was told the offer stands as it is. Thus, I was compelled to decline.
