    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at PPC (McLean, VA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Wasn't as rigorous or as thorough as expected. I interviewed with the director, a project manager, one or two senior analysts, a senior principle, each one at a time. It was more to get acquainted than to have a range of questions. They took me out for lunch. When I later got the job offer, it turned out that the managing supervisor was not the one I expected (although was one of those with which I interviewed). Apparently they had changed their minds on the reporting structure.

    Negotiation

    The offer was acceptable, so I didn't negotiate.

    Application

    interviewed at PPC (McLean, VA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Series of interviews with differing levels of staff. Variety of questions asked. No skills test. Lunch on site with higher up, was interested in learning more about individual as opposed to resume or skill set, which was nice. Pretty easy going. Heard back several months later. New hire out of college.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PPC (New York, NY) in August 2008.

    Interview

    University visit by employer, followed by a presentation to students. This was preceeded by online advertisement of open postions with the company, at the students career center website. On campus interviews were followed by a downselect, after which shortlisted candidates were called to New York HQ of the company for a day full of interviews, personality tests, and the like. Interviews were both technical and behavioral.
