    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Henry M. Jackson Foundation.

    Interview Details

    There was one HR person and one supervisor at the interview. They mostly gave an overview of what the job entailed and what the benefits were. They only asked me a couple of questions about myself and experience.They asked about specific knowledge of certain lab techniques and procedures. I later found out that they embellished the actual job description.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Henry M. Jackson Foundation.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a phone screen then face to face. Due to the fact that the phone screen was very detailed and exact the face to face seemed more relaxed. All in all it was a fair experience with a lot of situational questions.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Henry M. Jackson Foundation in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My situation was unique because I was offered this position through a nearby university. Therefore there was no traditional interview process from HJF directly. I had a short conversation with an HJF human resources generalist but it was relatively straightfoward asking me if I thought my offer was acceptable.

    Interview Questions
    • My primary question was concerning the offer HJF had made me (of which I had already known about going into the phone call).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Henry M. Jackson Foundation in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    My entire interview was done over the phone by my current Program Manager and the Lab officials at the site. After the interview I was told that I was one of the most pleasant interviewees and pretty much that they would like to offer me the job. I was told I would be hearing from HR in a few days and within a week the offer was sent, negotiatedand I accepted it and moved from Marylnad to Ohio. Was very smooth.

    Interview Questions
    • I was only asekd about my experience from my resume and typical questions regarding if I was a team player and how I would handle situations where there was conflict in the workplace or if I was in situation where I could fabricate test results and what I would do.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They were open to negotiation and met me halfway. I requested relocation which was not part of the contract but they worked it so I got it in the form of a bonus.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethesda, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Henry M. Jackson Foundation in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    The Project Director, Lab Manager, and Team Lead interviewed me. The Project Director was weird - he would lean forward and stare at me intensely in a way that was rude and would have made most people feel uncomfortable. The Team Lead knew the job I was interviewing for and was enthusiastic about my qualifications. The Lab Manager just kind of nodded his head at everything and seemed impressed with me as well.
