I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Mathematica Policy Research.
Interview Details – I was very pleased with the interview process. I contacted an HR representative early on, and she was very helpful and answered my questions promptly throughout the process. Everyone that I spoke to at the company was nice.
There was an initial (~30 min) phone interview that asked very general questions and then a 2nd round of interviews at the office. Both were pleasant and had a welcoming and productive feel rather than an intimidating or confrontational feel.
