    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Babson College.

    Interview

    I was called in for a first round interview and met with 2 managers, one of which being the person that would be my direct supervisor. It took a couple of weeks, but I followed up and was then called back for a second interview. The second time, I met with about half of the office, and spent almost a full day on site. I met with a few individuals at a time, and finished by meeting the director of the office. Thankfully, everyone was very welcoming and did not allow me to feel intimidated by their group size!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Babson College (Wellesley, MA).

    Interview

    Had an initial phone interview with HR rep and hiring manager. Was brought in for an in person interview with same two people 2 weeks later. Hiring manager didn't show up that day so I had to come in 2 weeks later again to meet with him and his boss. His boss didn't show up this time so I had to come in a MONTH later to meet with him. (I am not making this up, this is how it really happened). With the 4 rounds of interviews done, then the waiting process began. I waited 5 weeks with no word whatsoever and no response from multiple emails to the HR rep. After finally getting a hold of her, she said the process got held up and they are still completing interviews. It has now been almost 4 months overall and the process is still ongoing. Needless to say I would never want to work there now after what I went through.

    Interview

    Going into the interview the first question was about time management and how I was good at it. After clearing that I was asked to describe a time when I was in a high stress environment with work piling on and how I coped with it. Since it was a outward facing job I had to talk about my customer service experience too.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Babson College (Babson Park, MA) in November 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed on the phone. I think the main purpose of which was just to discover that I'd done the things I claimed I'd done on my resume.

    Drove in, registered my car with campus police, everyone on campus was really nice. Looked like a campus in Massachusetts in Fall. In other words, idyllic. Being there, it's easy to forget there's other countries that aren't as fortunate.

    The interview itself was fantastic. Really felt like I knocked it out of the park. Just some guys talking about web solutions.
