    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Sydney (Australia)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Castalia in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was recommended by a former colleague who worked with the company in Washington DC. I was contacted via email, then I had two phone conversations with the Managing Director and a lengthy (2.5 hour) face-to-face chat with the Chief Exectutive. The conversation ranged from deeply probing my understanding of economic issues and concepts to discussions of my experience.

    Project Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Castalia in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was not expecting behavioral questions to dominate a phone screening, but that was what happened. There were about 3-4 staff members. They were very short and brief, shooting questions after questions. They were obviously not too concerned about making it comfortable and conversational.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me a time when you solve a problem successfully compared to a time when you did not solve a problem successfully. What did you learn? What would you change next time?   Answer Question
