- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Atlas Research (Washington, DC) in November 2014.
The first interview was with two current employees: a potential coworker and what would become my immediate supervisor. The interview lasted approximately 30 to 40 minutes and consisted of a review of my resume and a few questions. The second interview was a panel interview and included discussions with a couple VP's at Atlas, as well as a Project Manager and a consultant. The second interview was surprisingly more laid back than the first and lasted less than 30 minutes.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Atlas Research (Washington, DC) in August 2010.
I received an invitation for a phone interview where I was screened by an HR representative. Then I was invited to a 4 hours in-person interview. We were there with 12 other applicants, had 2 panel interviews (each with at least 2 people) and a writing sample which included questions on a research article as well as a mock email response to an unhappy client. While it's a new company, they clearly take themselves very seriously. They kept emphasizing how the RA's basically do all the grunt work.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Atlas Research in March 2011.
I was recommended to the firm by a senior executive who has been a colleague and friend for many years. He called, told me about the position, and invited me to meet with the organization's top leadership over dinner in DC. I agreed and the dinner meeting/interview was interesting and pleasant. Two days later, I met again with them, and received an offer to join the firm.
- Do you mind having to spend time overseas, sometimes in some pretty rough places? 1 Answer
The negotiation process was informal. It took place over lunch and was more like a discussion among friends. The CEO of the firm and I talked openly and reached an agreement together.
