    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Leidos.

    Interview

    I was contacted 2 separate times for the same position by 2 different recruiters. Their email asked me to answer a bunch of questions. Did it twice and both times they never responded back to me. That's not how you treat candidates especially someone who is applying for your recruitment department.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ann Arbor, MI (US)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Leidos (Ann Arbor, MI (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Setup initial phone interview and spoke with an engineer. Waited a few weeks then got an e-mail to get setup for an on-site. Did the onsite, the questions were not difficult but do test knowledge of a programming language. Was forwarded an offer letter a few days later.

    The process was extremely refreshing and straight forward. No tricks.

    The people I interviewed with were extremely nice and very welcoming. They were also very experienced, I was able to get an answer to every one of my questions in excruciating detail.

    If you are looking for advice - know what you are talking about. Don't skimp out on understanding the quirks of the language and where the language fails compared to an alternative. Ask interesting questions that are not just run of the mill.

    Interview Questions

    • Look at some code, explain what is happening, little bit of a debugging type of question.   Answer Question
    • Expanding upon the memory and performance, what issues do you see in this code and how would you fix it?   Answer Question

    Long, with not much response from recruiter. Job posting online was not what was presented at in person interview; I almost felt as though I was at the wrong place. It was a total waste of time.

    Leadership Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Leidos.

    Interview

    The Leidos recruiting process for this role completely took the human out of the experience. I received an email with about 12 questions that ranged from when could I start to sharing deeper experiences and practices that are best discussed with a recruiter. I was not selected for the role and was not provided feedback as to why after spending so much time working on these questions. Advice to Leidos - you are potentially missing out on talented candidates by removing the conversation from your recruiting process. Furthermore, the emails from your recruiters can land in someone's junk folder, missing the opportunity to respond if they are interested. Personally, it says a lot to me that an organization doesn't get to know a candidate before "selecting" them for the next round. How can the recruiter or candidate know if they will be a good fit by typing answers to questions? This process is incredibly impersonal and one I will never subject myself to again.
