    I worked at Educational Testing Service as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    ETS ensured that we had mentors and built relationships with current employees. They were very open to our presence and very giving! ETS is known for providing awesome benefits and for awarding excellent work. Even interns were provided bonuses.

    Cons

    The purpose of the program I participated in was diversity, so this is one of the main issues despite all of the events and initiatives they gave around underrepresented populations in education. Also, the fact that the campus is divided by a pond affects relationships among co-workers. It's almost like there's a barrier to interaction -- many of these employees have worked at ETS together for more than 10 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better ways to promote communications and relationships "across the pond". Also make transition from internship to employment smoother, particularly for employees of Color since the link between the two isn't necessarily apparent.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Educational Testing Service.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very casual and made you feel comfortable. There were about 3 people on the line who asked questions. They asked questions like "Tell me about yourself, what do you know about ETS, why should we hire you, and etc. As the interview continued, they asked questions pertaining to my resume and research that I've done in the past. At first I was very nervous, but with time and as the interview progressed the interviewers made you feel very comfortable. Prep, ask yourself questions and do your research on the organization.
