I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SAIC-Frederick (Frederick, MD).
This is odd - I worked in the facility for a different contractor and just walked to the lab of the person hiring and talked about the position open. So when the actual interview took place, the deal was done. I had worked in the other contract with the soon to be supervisor and had been to meeting with him. It was a very casual thing. However, at the time the HR staff that actually made the hiring happen were on leave and I had to wait 2 weeks to be hired since the HR director could not manage it.
No negotiation. This is a government contract job with limited dollars.
