Policy Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at AARP.

Interview Details – I was called for an interview not long after I applied for the position. The interview was over the phone with AARP's HR Director, and it was very straightforward with no surprises. It was actually a pleasant interview. They requested writing samples and I forwarded them along. Currently waiting to hear back about the next step.

Interview Question – I have followed up with the Director but have not heard anything from AARP since my interview last month.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AARP in May 2008.

Interview Details – I applied via the web, sent in a cover letter, resume, and writing sample. I was contacted by the recruiter to gauge my continued interest and set up an interview with the hiring manager. I went in for the interview where I spoke with senior experts on the team.
