    Interview

    One round of interviews with multiple managers. Interviews were back to back. The first was with an HR representative, followed by several 30 minute interviews with managers. There was a fairly long period between when I applied, and when I was contacted for an interview; at least a month. They were interviewing a number of people for a number of roles all at once in order to staff up. Everyone I met with was friendly and inviting during our discussion.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MITRE.

    Interview

    In my case it was pretty straight forward. I had worked with the hiring manager before when we were both government. When the time came to retire from the military, I approached them about potential positions. Nothing was available at the time, but a year later they came to me and asked if I was still interested.

    Lead Multi-Discipline Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA (US)) in September 2009.

    Interview

    HR handled the scheduling and travel arrangement process in a very efficient manner. I end up having to come out twice to talk to two different groups. Everyone I met was very enthusiastic and the work environment seemed rather laid back.

    The interviews themselves were a little too easy. For the most part, I got to hear a good deal about the corporation's philosophy and some generalities about the work undertaken by the groups to which I talked. But, I didn't feel that one of the groups did much of a job of probing my qualifications and talents (the second group on the other hand, did a more thorough/standard grilling).

    Reasons for Declining

    I loved the company. If they had offered more money I would have gone, but I got an offer from a similar place that had better salary and benefits by a significant margin. I could definitely see myself going back and working there in the future, though.
