    I worked at Vera Institute Of Justice as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good intelligent colleagues who work hard to make sure the intern's time is well spent. Great lunches when meeting with clients too

    Cons

    Technology is archaic and there is little interaction between colleagues working in the same pod

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in new computers!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Vera Institute Of Justice.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy process that spanned over months, including phone and face to face interviews. Ask the standard questions, such as 'what interested you about the position?' 'why do you want to work for them?' 'what can you contribute?', etc.

    They seemed less prepared for questions about their research.

    I also found it odd that I was told that I could ask questions, but not 'too many'. I'm not sure what the quota on questions was.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions but found it uncomfortable that they permitted someone to eaves drop on my phone conversation with the interviewer. The person interrupted during the interview to ask a question and was quickly shushed. Apparently I wasn't meant to know they were listening. Not sure why it wasn't made transparent that there was more than one person conducting the phone interview. Or why I was told that the reason I was on speaker phone was so that the interviewer could take notes rather than than the truth, that the interview was to be conducted by more than one person. Very odd, indeed.   Answer Question
