Analyst Interview

Analyst

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Independent Project Analysis.

Interview Details – After resume accepted, phone interview, then 6 hour day of interviews and maybe give a presentation. Presentation can get you the job or you can lose it because of poor performance. Presentation skills are closely analyzed, second order is topic. Then it's how you mix with the employes, your resume they were already impressed by.

Interview Question – Questions are text book. Couple people may try some off the wall ones to make them feel special.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Ask higher than u wanted, then work your way down.

Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Independent Project Analysis.

Interview Details – I got a phone interview from one of their senior management team members. Then, someone from HR called me a few days later. Despite me trying to call her back 3 times, she would not answer her phone or return my voice mail. Then, two months later, they sent me a form-letter rejection. The delay was so long that I (a) assumed that I was not going to get this job, (b) thought their HR process was a mess, and (c) wasn’t interested in this job anyway (or I would have followed up again).

Also, moving my entire life to Virginia to consult with oil and gas companies in Texas at a salary of less than what I made 8 full years ago (when I was not traveling or working more than 40 hours a week) was really not my life goal at this time. The salary range was around 75k. Really...for a PhD to consult with oil and gas companies? 75k is the going rate now? My friends are making about 2-4x that in non-traveling 40 hour a week jobs. This was non-negotiable.

Their cut & paste rejection letter is just unprofessional to send 2 long months after my initial interview, but it seems to follow the rest of the pattern with my haphazard interview process. As someone who was unemployed for as long as I was, I just could not believe how rude and unprofessional so many companies are toward their applicants. However, they were not the worst. Another company made me wait 4 months! Well, IPA "Good luck with your future endeavors!"
