    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was referred through a friend and was contacted the same day to set up an interview for the following week. HR was very friendly and helpful, they ended up scheduling me for several interviews and a test all in the same day. I was able to speak with prospective members from all levels of the team which was really nice, and then a skills assessment, which was fair in it's difficulty. Everyone was very friendly, which I think speaks to the culture of the company, and the interview seemed like it was more about seeing if I would be a good fit for the company and team since there was a skills test that evaluated the technical portion of the job. HR kept me in the loop about when I would hear about the position, and responded within the window they gave me. Great salary, signing bonus, and benefits were offered.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, had a phone interview, then was brought in for an interview with six different people of varying levels. One of the senior decision makers was out of town so I was unable to meet with them since I was an out of state candidate.

    The next day I was asked to progress to a writing test and was told they would get back to me soon with next steps. Finally heard back after emailing for an update a week later that they had gone with another candidate.

    There's a little wiggle room, but not much. If they say they can't offer you a higher base salary, ask for a signing bonus.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I applied through an online listing and the process took approximately 4-6 weeks. I was called in for two separate interviews. The interviews are fairly simple and straightforward if you do the necessary prepwork for the beforehand--no really out of the blue questions that I can recall. The first round of interviews consisted of multiple group interviews with potential supervisors and teammates, as well as a brief overview of the company and position with a staff member from HR. The second round of interviews was another group and I was then given a skills assessment test—fairly straightforward if you know your stuff. I was kept abreast of the process through HR, which really seemed on top of everything, and was offered the position about a week and a half later.

    Negotiation Details
    I personally didn't negotiate because they offered me a killer benefits package and great work environment, which was worth far more to me than the money, but I'm sure there would have been some wiggle room had I asked.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was very easy. Went through the resume. Asked to talk about how your experience and skills fit the position. And couple of days later they would get their email for 1:1 interview. But someone told me they got group interview. It really depends.

    Negotiation Details
    go through their website before the interview. Because you would get more credits if you really know their company and understand their culture.
