I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at ICF International.

Interview Details – Applied online via the company's website. Was contacted several weeks after for an initial phone screening. Within a few days they got back to me to schedule an in person interview in VA. Both interviews were very straightforward and they didn't ask me any particularly difficult questions.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of government contracting, they were not able to actually offer me the position until they received the award by the government. It's been over three months and they have still not received the money for their proposal.

Interview Question – Have you kept up to date with the newest techniques in linear programming and optimization?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The process took too long. Was given another offer in the meantime.

Very Easy Interview

The process took 3 days - interviewed at ICF International in February 2012.

Interview Details – A recruiter called to repeat the questions answered thru the online application process, just to insist on coming up with a $alary before giving any details about the job or answering any questions. I 'd not work for such a cheap company after reading the negative reviews and low salaries. .

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at ICF International in December 2010.

Interview Details – There were no tricks or unusual questions in the interview. I first interviewed over the phone with a recruiter. I was then interviewed with a panel of three managers on the project that I was being hired to join. They reviewed my resume and asked a few questions about my background for about 1 hour. After the interview finished, I was relieved when they said, "When we find someone that we feel would be good for the project, we don't waste our time with other interviews. We hire them right away".

Negotiation Details – The recruiter gave me the feasible range. They offered me the very top quantity for that range, thus I did not think it prudent to negotiate higher.
