    Translator/Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CENTRA (Massachusetts) (Arlington, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I was interviewed individually by several people. They were all initially friendly except the main executive. He was not impressed that my translation experience was volunteer, although I'd been unable to find employment because of the economy. Another person seemed to think I was not serious because my hair was curled. I was not impressed by the environment here. Professionalism to me means treating people respectfully and politely and not dealing out snap judgments. I decided not to complete my application for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • I froze on the in-office translation test because it was totally unexpected, and the manager administrating it was openly scornful of me.   Answer Question

    Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at CENTRA (Massachusetts) (Arlington, VA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    Odd interview because I didn't apply for the position, but was contacted by a head hunter because of my prior work experiences. I wasn't really asked any questions - they just described the position and their corporate culture. I think they needed to fill a contract, and my resume happened to be qualified for the position. Overall, a positive experience - the people there were nice and seemed eager to have me join the company.
