    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Belvoir, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at General Dynamics Information Technology (Fort Belvoir, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted in early January asking if I was still interested in the research assistant position, and that the recruiter was pushing my resume forward to the hiring manager. I didn't hear back from GDIT until late February. They were surprised that I was still available and interested, and invited me for an interview the next day. I came in and met with multiple staff members - managers, doctors, HR, and research assistants and went over my research one step at a time, followed by questions about the position and my interest and abilities. It was very relaxed and everyone was extremely friendly! Afterwards they showed me around the building and asked if I had anymore questions before leaving. I was contacted the day after and offered a position.
