    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Book.

    Interview Details

    HR called and said they liked my resume, set up an in person interview with VP and Director. I spoke with each of them for about 30 minutes. It was very conversational - they asked about my strengths and what I could bring to the organization. I asked a lot of questions about the team and workplace culture.

    Manager, Strategic Alliances Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at First Book in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very frustrating experiences as I was called in for an interview and then told that I was overqualified and not interviewed. Prospective boss was not open to idea of adding responsibilities to advertised position to create a more appropriate position. Very narrow minded focus on that particular job vs. looking at benefit of overall organization. Low salary. Seemed like a disconnect between actual job and the job description.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at First Book.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was unexpectedly time consuming, spanning a 6 week period and covering three interviews on two separate dates that required multiple reschedules due to timing conflicts with senior management.

    Interview Questions
    • Senior management did not seem to be on board with hiring for my position and asked what purpose my job would serve for the organization.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Don't be afraid to ask for the salary you want, or even a bit above. The hiring process is such that, by the time you are given an offer, you're likely the only candidate they want to hire.
