Associate Investigator Interview

Associate Investigator

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at US Investigations Services in June 2012.

Interview Details – The first interview is via a phone call and then there is a follow up writing sample they request. Then an in person interview can be scheduled.

They are looking for good writers, so take the time to edit your piece that is submitted as part of the interview process.

They are looking for people who want to stay with the company long term. They want people who are willing to work hard and are self motivated. Come with stories that demonstrate that you can work well under pressure with little or no direct supervision.

Interview Question – Have you read the negative reviews of the company by former employees and what is your opinion of those online reviews.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was given an offer and 72 hours to accept or reject. The offer is contingent on successful background investigation that could take over 6 months. If after you sign and they give you a start date and you do not complete a year of service, your contract may require one full year of service or result in you paying $5000 for the cost of the investigation.

Associate Investigator Interview

Associate Investigator

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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 Question – 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.

Associate Investigator Interview

Associate Investigator

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at US Investigations Services in July 2010.

Interview Details – Three-step interview consisting of a phone interview, online portion and then an in-person interview. Simple, fast (2 weeks total) and relatively painless. Interviewed in person by my future direct supervisor and the woman who would train me, so it was a great way to get to know the people I'd be working with in the process.
