Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at US Investigations Services.

Interview Details

I had to answer several experiential and behavioral questions in an essay type format and then I got a telephone interview. After that, I went for an in person interview. Then I got the job. The questions for both the telephone interview and in person interview were very similar in nature.

Interview Questions
  • Questions were formatted like "tell me about a time when..." and if you do not have much work experience, then that can be difficult trying to provide quick and detailed answers.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
There was no negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at US Investigations Services in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position in December, got an email saying they were interested in me and that they would call me for the interview. Interview lasted about 30 minutes on the phone. Got a face to face interview with two men at a hotel by the airport. They asked me a few dumb questions like "what would I do if the person I'm interviewing lived in a gated community?" and "What are the toughest part of the the job i'm interviewing for would be" Basically the same exact questions the phone interview was except a few more stupid questions. Between the application and the interview face to face, it was a matter of a couple of weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • They should waste people times with the stupid questions, just be straight forward.   Answer Question

    Associate Investigator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at US Investigations Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    It's a long process. I applied online and only got an interview after calling the recruiter numerous times for a chance to interview. The interview was over the phone for about 20-30 minutes and the questions were not too difficult. I felt good about my interview. I then had to submit a writing sample for two questions which were to be answered in one to three generous paragraphs. This had to be done in about three hours and sent back via email to the recruiter. They grade on sentence structure and grammar.
    I was also told that he would make a decision the next day and that if I didn't hear from him that it was a "good sign." After about a week, I emailed to inquire about the results with no response. I then received the rejection email the Friday before the Labor Day weekend... my wife and I were on our way to a much needed vacation... what a way to start the weekend.
