Interview Question – Biggest strength? Answer Question
The process took 3 months - interviewed at Georgetown University in January 2012.
Interview Details – Very long...phone interview and two in-person interviews with multiple people. It spanned over a few months with lots of follow up. I don't know why they were taking their time, but in the end, it worked against them because I got frustrated. Nice group of people, though. It seemed like a nice work/life balance.
Interview Question – I don't remember. Nothing too difficult Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Had a few other offers. Didn't think it was the right fit for me at the time. Was also unsure how i felt about the manager i would be working under. It seemed like the office was in flux, which I later found out was true.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Georgetown University in June 2011.
Interview Details –
Applied to position posted on a job board and was contacted by phone directly by the hiring managger (a peer of the position I applied for) for a screening within a week of submitting resume. She asked some basic questions and then determined and told me I was very qualified for the position and to come in to discuss the opportunity and meet the team.
We scheduled it for the week after which was right before Christmas. I went, met every single member of the team, incuding one potential boss on his way to a sabbatical (who tested my lanuage skills), as well as the would be boss who showed up 1 hour late having gotten caught in traffic. He was quite apologetic and the one I was with was very mad about the whole thing. I didn't meet with the peer who had called me as she was quite ill and home. I spent approximately 4 hours there and left with the feeling an offer was upcoming. I was extatic as the fit was indeed perfect and this position looked like it had been written for me.
The holidays went by and when the 10th of Jan rolled around I emailed them to touch base, having not heard from anyone. I didn't get an answer to that email for three days. Finally I got an answer from the peer I hadn't met who told me that someone else had gotten the job even though my qualifications were (quote) "stellar" and that she was really sorry about it.
I have to say that I could not for the life of me figure out why. The whole thing made no sense to me. I had had fantastic contacts and everything went swimmingly I thought. Apparently I was misktaken.
I have over 15 years experience and use to coach people and I've never had this happen to that degree.
I do not know what happened (other than nepotism maybe...).
Interview Question – (in Spanish) You mention you can speak Spanish ... followed by 10 minutes of Spanish convo (which I was totally ok with). View Answer
The process took 2 days - interviewed at Georgetown University in March 2009.
Interview Details –
Very thorough questions. I interviewed with several groups of people, who took turns asking a lot of tough pre-selected questions.
These were other soon-to-be-coworkers, and were friendly.
The office is an average corporate-type office, and the work culture is fairly laid back. In this department, people may work their day starting anytime between 8 and 11 am. One day per week working from home is also common.
Negotiation Details – The salary scale is not relevant anymore... I started out above the salary max for the grade.
