    Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at College Board.

    Interview Details

    Most unprofessional interview I've ever had. HR lined up more than a dozen candidates in the same room, waiting for hours for the technical interviews. It is like a "gladiator" scene. After surviving the farce of the first round, I was called back for management interview. The questions were vague, CTO (or is it CIO?) was a no show. Received a curt email from HR that I was no longer in the run.

    Months later, HR contacted me for the same job. Are you kidding?

    Assistant Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at College Board.

    Interview Details

    This process was highly inflexible and unorganized. They didn't have a good sense of what the role would actually be doing and asked the same questions over and over in the interview. Once it came to final stages they made it seem as though they would be moving forward with an offer only to go in a different direction at random.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at College Board.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job listing on their website. A few months later, I got an email from HR to set up a phone interview. After calls with several people, I was asked to come to the office, where I spent an entire afternoon interviewing with numerous high-level people. Everyone was very pleasant and they seemed eager to speak with me.

    At the end of the day, HR told me I would be moving forward. However, HR never got in touch about next steps nor responded to my follow-ups. Months after my interview, I still haven't even received a rejection (the reason I gave an overall negative experience).

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the interview questions were not questions per se but more of the "We need someone to do X" variety.   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at College Board in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was emailed for a phone interview with HR about 2 weeks later. The recruiter seemed annoyed with my actual experience, which is very clear on my resume, and questioned why I would apply for the job. It's been about 6 weeks and I haven't hard anything.

    Interview Questions
    • She asked a lot of questions about my tech experience, which is really out of the realm of my background (and I was upfront about).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at College Board in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online trhough their website and was contacted by the nicest HR person. Then there where about 4 phone interviews which all seemed very postive. The down side is even though everyone is really nice you don't get much feedback on anything you say or the way it's going.

    Interview Questions
    • The hiring manager was very stand-off ish when it came to giving any type of feedback on how the conversation was going. Also the VP asked what was my super power.   Answer Question
