The process took 5 months - interviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated. in January 2011.

Interview Details – The process was very lengthy and the firm was slow to respond at all stages of the process. Hiring activity is reviewed by committee, which apparently does not meet with regularity. The company is also admittedly slow to add new jobs and prefers a reactive approach to contract demand. The company repeatedly missed their own deadlines in delivering decision notifications.

Interview Questions

  • Questions were standard, relating to why you are a good fit, goals, and behavioral interviewing (e.g. tell me about a time when you missed a deadline, worked as a team, etc.).   Answer Question
  • There is also a more 'technical' review, depending on the position you are interviewing for. This might be a simple or more complex cost-benefit analysis similar to the type of work they would do in reviewing EPA standards.   View Answer
