The questions I was asked were all about technical knowledge of Business Analysis and competency based questions designed to draw out experience and application of technical knowledge. It was challenging but I really enjoyed it. Be honest, be relaxed and know your stuff!!
Culture in the FAST Labs sector is beyond terrible. They took away vacation time, coffee,cups, plastic wear and now plants. They are literally digging up a 15+ foot tree because they cut the plant service.. people are leaving on a weekly basis. Their supposed to hire 200 ppl and the number for the year is negative. They don’t show that though they show the hired number so they think people are dumb.. If you like to kiss butt then this is the place for you... I can’t live my life like that so I had to leave.
I had posted by CV on Indeed, Monster, Reed and Jobsite. I was contacted by a specialist IT recruitment agency with details of the role.
When I started, it was a great 9/80. I felt slightly underpaid for what I did, but had a great work life balance so it was okay. Increasingly, the expectation began to work like 70 hours a week, and the "incentive" was that you might be able to go home after only 50 hours or so if things went well. No overtime or incentives for employees doing the work was offered, although hardworking and successful employees could get "rewarded" by having to spend more hours doing even more work, because they can do it and it needs to get done!
If you were in charge, what would you do to make BAE Systems a better place to work?
Hire J.L Horton! You’ll be happy you did, because I give it my all!!
