    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at American Council on Education.

    Interview

    The HR staff handled the communication and set up prior to the first interview. The first interview was with a fairly large panel, about 8 people from different teams and units the successful applicant would deal with. The panel was organized, clearly had prepared and assigned questions, also allowed for follow on.
    Second interview was with supervisor and next level up, a week or so later.

    Interview Questions

    • Understanding full context for a position in the testing field without prior test development/deployment experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    HR staff was terrific, looking out for my interests (recommended at least a week between jobs, even though hiring office wanted immediate start). She was absolutely right, a week provided time enough to start the new job fully fresh and energized.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Council on Education in March 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview scheduled by HR through email. Search committee with 5 people on phone for one hour interview. HR and search committee were very friendly. However, I was disappointed that I did not receive a "thanks, but no thanks letter." I even followed up with an email but did not hear back from them. So, after several days then weeks, I assumed that I did not get the job, which is fine. However, it is not very professional to leave a candidate hanging.
