    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RTI International.

    Interview Details

    Very smooth interview process. I applied online and then an HR recruiter contacted me within a week. I then had an onsite interview the next week with a panel. The experience was efficient and positive.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at RTI International.

    Interview Details

    Applied, heard back immediately, invited for an interview. Interview went well, basic questions with the promise to get back to me in a week. One month later, I still haven't heard back. I've sent one thank you email immediately, then two polite follow up emails, spaced 2 weeks apart, the two follow up emails received no answer. I still have no idea if they filled the job or cancelled it or what. A rejection email at the very least would be nice. Very frustrating and unexpected from such a respected company.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult or unexpected. They shared their projects with me and we talked about my background and skills. It was a straightforward, enjoyable interview.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at RTI International in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Pretty easy to get hired. Show up in professional attire (business suit with tie for men). Had one phone interview and one in person interview. Asked questions like do you have a dependable car and a drivers license? What days and hours are you available to work? (You must answer any days any hours you need me.) Had a basic reading test to make sure you could read interview questions to candidates.

    Supplier Quality and Monitoring Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at RTI International in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found the internship via university career website. Got an email inviting me to a phone interview about 10 days after I submitted my application. I called the hiring manager who is also the supervisor of the position and had a great talk about 45 mins (he's really nice and friendly). Got back from the phone interview after 3 business days to do an on-site interview with the supervisor and his manager which lasted about 30 mins. The on-site interview was more of a conversation. Got the offer about 4 business days after the second interview.

    Just standard interview questions and nothing tricky.

    Junior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied through their career website. I was contacted by the hiring manger by phone to talk about the projects I would potentially be working on. The interview was actually fairly long. About 2-3 hours. There were about 4 to 6 waves of interviewers in groups of 2-3. I think they set the interview up like this to see for which projects I would be the best fit for. There weren't really any technical questions, most of the questions were limited to my resume and coursework.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Interview was mainly to determine if I was a good fit with their projects.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Done via e-mail. Pretty fair with negotiating.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at RTI International.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR to see if I was interested in a phone interview. I agreed and scheduled a time to call the hiring manager, which also ended up being my supervisor. I called the hiring manager, and she talked to me about my past job experience and senior design project that were included on my resume. The interview felt just like a conversation.

    Interview Questions
    • She really honed in on my senior design project and asked a lot of detailed question about what went into it.   View Answer
