Associate Investigator Interview

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.
