I'm not afraid of a challenge. I can both lead and follow. I'm an excellent communicator. Less

Isys Technologies

Questions were either generic about DoD and government experience, but some were strangely specific about a issues or problems they might have had with the individual in the position before. Gave me a bad feeling that whomever took the position was going to be fighting the ghost of the person before.

1 Answers

Standard technical answers about rules and regulations of different government agencies. Tried to answer the weird "person" work issue/problems with the standard touchie-feelie answers. You'd have to be an idiot to answer those any other way. Less


If you had a choice, what would be your job of choice?

1 Answers

I answered from the heart, I wanted to serve my country years ago but due to some injuries I did not qualify. Having the opportunity to work for a contractor who provides support for our warfighters is the closest I can get to helping our troops. Less

Asked about experience with IC information assurance policy.

IC policy has some overlap with DoD and NIST IA policy and I have experience with both, which I was able to leverage. Less

Schneider Electric

Why did you leave your last job. What would your manager say about you.

1 Answers

I didn't answer well because I detest the management culture in Omaha and the questioning made me feel small and judged. I thought from the Schneider Electric career website video that they would be more modern, but the manager that interviewed me had the typical Omaha management "I'm OK, You're not OK" attitude. She talked about how she didn't like that she could not see the telecommute employees work so she could not tell if they were working or not, and only had their results to go by (which she apparently didn't consider as reliable as watching employees work). I would say her attitude was not one of trusting her people nor any feeling that her job included serving them. Also the work environment felt inhibited, I didn't see any collaborating going on, everyone looked pretty silently frozen in place in their short "open office" cubettes. Also, she said they don't do team interviews, which I interpret as additional indication that it is an authoritarian work culture that doesn't value the input of the technical staff. Less


Recall a challenge you faced and how you over came it.

1 Answers

Explained some difficulties I have had with business stakeholders and how a compromise was made to meet the needs of security and the business. Less

SRA International

I conducted a 30 minute interview explaining in detail concepts of Cyber Security before realizing that the HR interviewer didn't know anything about the subject. Demonstrate knowledge but don't overdue it.

Lockheed Martin

Questions were from both the hiring manager and a panel of those I would be working with on the program. Basically a review of my resume and some additional questions to make sure my resume wasn't BS.
