Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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

I applied online and 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

Supplier Quality and Monitoring
Research Triangle Park, NC

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – Was there a time when you made a mistake? How did you correct it?   Answer Question

Junior Analyst Interview

Junior Analyst

Interviewed at RTI International

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 Question – 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.
