    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Educational Testing Service in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    A few weeks after I applied, I was asked to come to the HQ in Princeton. I first took a test, then was interviewed by someone in HR, and finally had a panel interview. I found the panel interview to be fine. Four people were interviewing me, but only two generally asked questions. Note that it can take awhile to hear back after an interview, especially if the interviewers are traveling.

    Interview Questions

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Educational Testing Service in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a special program at my school. Was contacted by phone for an interview a few weeks later. It was a pretty relaxed interview, spoke with the internship coordinator, and then two departments that were interested in me. All fit/behavioral type questions, going over my resume. Everyone was very nice.

    Assessment Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Details

    After my application was forwarded to the department I was asked to submit a writing sample, and then to do a few typical tasks--writing questions, editing, and scoring. Had a phone interview --an hour or so?--with the directors, and then was invited to campus for an interview day. The morning began at 9 with an interview by a group of directors and senior assessment specialists, then I was taken to lunch with current employees, then was asked to do a few more sample tasks. The day ended with a meeting with the human resources representative, and ended around 3. Everyone I came into contact with at each stage was friendly and professional.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation in which you had to deal with competing obligations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much. I had been told the general range for the position at the interview, so when I received my offer I asked for a bit more in salary but was told that what I was being offered was the most they could offer for my skillset, and the HR guy explained politely that the offer included a bump for attributes x, y, and z.. I was given a very generous moving expenses package, however, so I was ok.
