Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Virginia Military Institute in June 2009.
Interview Details – Selected through the Department of the Army
Negotiation Details – None, Milittary
Interviewed at Virginia Military Institute
Interview Details – Reasonable and thoughtfully done. Lack of clarity a bit of a problem.
Interview Question – It was all very chatty. Hard to pinpoint a specific question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – VMI has no interest in making competitive bids. I took the job to be close to family.
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Virginia Military Institute in November 2011.
Interview Details – Surprisingly quick feedback after application submitted; in retrospect, most of the interview took place over the phone. The face-to-face interview took place later that week and was pleasant, and I was shown the software they used and told about the benefits. Everything seemed like a perfect match. But at the end of that face-to-face, I was told that they prioritize hiring from within the organization over actual qualifications, and that unfortunately someone from within the organization had applied since my initial telephone interview. I was [nicely] warned not to expect a call, but that I should continue to apply for other positions there.
I felt like they wasted my time, since no matter how well my interview went, the position was essentially filled days before my interview. I suppose I appreciate that they hire from within the organization, but they shouldn't have had me come in for an interview if that position wasn't available anymore.
I have not applied there since, although I understand it's a very nice place to work. I don't enjoy being given the runaround.
