    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beltsville, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vocus.

    Interview Details

    The interview process at Vocus was a smooth and exciting experience. I was first contacted by a Senior Recruiter who conducted a phone screen with me. I was then invited in for a face to face interview. At that time, I was interviewed by 4 different managers/team members. The interview lasted about 2 hours, where I was asked different questions about my work history and backround. Then I was given a tour of the amazing facility at headquarters. The managers were great, educational and easy to talk with. I loved the idea of the product and the "work hard, play hard" culture.

    PR Software Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beltsville, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beltsville, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Vocus in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted within 2 weeks after replying to a posting on LinkedIn and spent about 20 minutes talking to a recruiter based out of North Carolina. I was asked to come into the Beltsville office for an interview at the end of the week. I went arrived and toured the facility and was dropped off in an interview room. I spoke with two recruiters/managers about the position and how they were looking to expand the team. It was very casual meeting and was ask very broad questions. They ask me to take a writing skills assessment and that was it. I was told a follow up would come the following week. Two weeks later, I after following up twice on my OWN, I got a generic rejection letter. The fact I had to contact them really shows how little they care about the "talent" they bring in.

    Media Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in College Park, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in College Park, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vocus.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty brief and straightforward. It seems like a high turnover position. The managers who interviewed me were pretty rude and unprofessional. The offices themselves aren't very nice at all. A lot of the research isn't really research -- it's essentially cold calling people for their information, so they can market towards them.
