    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated. (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    applied online. submitted a cover letter, resume, transcript. HR emails you to schedule a 10 minute phone screen. they spend 1/3 of the time explaining the role in detail. the relatively inactive, "sit-down-for-excruciatingly-long-periods-of-time" description put me off immediately. the remaining 2/3 focused on why you are interested in the position and answering any of your questions.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated. (Cambridge, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Industrial Economics Incorporated..

    Interview

    Long and drawn out hiring process. Took several months to hear back after submitting the initial application, and then many weeks to hear about an offer after going on the in person interview. Very friendly HR and interview staff - meet with a lot of people and really get a good sense of the company.
