    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview Details

    It is a 2-3 step interview process. I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter very quickly to schedule a telephone interview. After the telephone interview, I received an email to schedule an in person interview with the department head. During the interview we discussed my skills/experience and specifics about the position. The interview concluded and I spoke with the hr manager about the process and "next steps" for the position. I was told I would receive an email at the end of the week on a decision. I haven't received any notice from them regarding the position. I sent a follow up email for some insight and received no response.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received an email about this job posting through my undergraduate major department chair, then emailed my resume and cover letter to the appropriate person in the department. I reached out a couple of weeks later to her to check in on the process and she said they were still looking and she would like me to come in for an interview. I went in at the scheduled time and the interview was pretty standard, general resume and behavioral questions.

    Manager, Corporate Relations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview Details

    The entire hiring process was a bit drawn out. I had three interviews (phone, one-on -one with supervisor, and a group interview). I applied directly through the Chamber's website, and it took about 2 1/2 months from the first phone call to the eventual offer letter. The phone interview was with HR and mostly resembled a screening call. The HR person asked mostly about my background, described the position, and asked "fit" questions. The one-on-one interview was almost generic. My eventual supervisor wanted to discuss policy and how I would go about approaching prospective sales meetings. The group meeting was with my supervisor and two co-workers. We went over my resume and discussed my hobbies and interests. Each interview was spaced about 2 weeks apart and the final offer came via phone call from HR followed up by an email with a soft copy of the offer letter.

    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview Details

    Their interviewing process is horrible. I had to come to their offices three separate times which could have all been done in one visit. It was a waste of my not to mention their own. They really need to streamline their interviewing process and be more honest with the candidates as they move along the process. To have an interviewee come and meet with three people and be asked the same questions is ridiculous. Why not have a panel interview? I didn't get the position and I am glad that I didn't. If the interviewing process was like that I could only imagine what it would be like working there.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a staffing agency for a first round phone screen. Then, my resume was passed along to the Chamber for review. I was called and informed that they wanted to interview me. I met with the hiring manager, then with the department supervisor on the same day. Received an offer for employment only a few days after the interivew. Working with the staffing agency was a little painful, however, the opportunity was too good to pass up. Overall, the interview process was very quick and fairly painless.

    Interview Questions
    • All of my interviews (phone and in-person) where very conversational. I was prepped to be very conservative and business-focused, however, each round was much more relaxed than I had anticipated.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, was offered the salary that was budgeted for the posiiton.

    Database Administrator/Trainer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview was with a recruiter. She was very nice and was excited about getting me in for a face to face interview. As soon as I sent her my resume, she gave me the information on the company name, etc. and promised to get back to me with a time, etc. This was a Friday, the interview ended up being on Monday. Very prompt, especially in this economy. I was laid off in January and as of June, this is the only face to face interview I have had! I thought the interview went well, but I found out the next day that I was not in the running at all. The only negative is that after a few attempts, maybe 3, I have zero feedback. I don't have a clue why I wasn't considered. That would be nice to know.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions seemed pretty easy. The only awkward moment was when I made a comment about cloud computing and he told me that I was wrong in my definition. It really had no bearing on the job description, but they wanted to come off of a hosted system and have in-house data.   View Answer
