    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  McLean, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Neustar.

    Interview Details

    Unexpected lengthy process with an unnecessarily long online application process of which the information is not used at all in the process. Hiring managers talk more about the benefits and the wonderful workplace than the actual position and what needs to be accomplished. For the size of company the processes are very arduous and cumbersome, the timing of the offer was longer than expected.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Neustar in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with peers and some executives to determine mutual interest and fit. Got to see the work environment. People were candid about what was working and what wasn't and how the role would help address what wasn't working. Very forward thinking.

    Negotiation Details
    Make sure your compensation expectations are outlined at the beginning so the offer you get is as close to what you want - versus having them guess.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sterling, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Neustar in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred for this position by a current employee and spoke to someone in HR before they set me up to speak to the Manager. After a phone interview I then went in to meet with the Manager and a few members of the team where we discussed my background and the requirements for the position. It was a very good experience for me and all the people were very friendly. They unfortunately decided to go with another candidate for this role, but hopefully will keep me in mind for future opportunities.

    QA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sterling, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Neustar in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got referred by an employee for QA Engineer position and I heard good things about the company so I decided to go for it. At first they requested a phone interview, but then they skipped that and went straight for an on-site interview. I talked with 3 QA engineers and finally with the VP, everything went smoothly and I got a positive feedback during the interview. However, after the interviews nobody actually got back to me, I tried sending couple of follow-ups to people I talked to during the process, but no luck. What a joke...

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sterling, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sterling, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Neustar in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    My interview was fairly non-standard, since my interviewer had specifically requested me (we met on a project during my internship last year, and he was impressed with how well I worked for an underclassman university student.). I was presented with an actual problem that the group was planning on having me work on, and was asked about how I would approach the problem. It was very imformal, and very relaxed, with us just sitting in a small conference room and working through the problem.

    Interview Questions
    • The only question was about how to solve the problem they were facing.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotionation, I was applying for an internship, and was just happy to have a job for the summer.
