    I have been working at Cobec Consulting full-time (Less than a year)


    The work culture at Cobec is very unique and close knit. Employees all support each other as a team because they understand that one person's achievements means a success for everyone. The employees at Cobec love to have fun and management genuinely wants each person to enjoy what they do. There are extremely open channels of communication between upper management and employees, making management very aware of everyone's needs.


    None! Cobec is an amazing company to work for.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cobec Consulting (Washington, DC) in August 2016.


    Two sets of interviews. One- group phone interview. Two- in-person one-on-one interview. See below for types of interview questions. Then an offer. Slight negotiations during the offer process. After the acceptance of the offer, there was additional time prior to onboarding to do a background check. The background check took the longest- it's a Public Trust US government background check.

    Interview Questions

    • What prior experience do you have running a large project? What government contracting experience do you have? What are some work challenges you've experienced and how have you overcome them?   Answer Question
