    Pros

    Wonderful company to work for. They stood beside me through a 7 month period where I couldn't work.

    Cons

    Right now there aren't enough hours to even call it part time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Westat.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to do a phone screen, did an on site interview with leadership and staff members, and shortly after called about an offer. From the date I applied to the offer, it took around 6 weeks, they moved very quickly.

    I ended up declining the position because the manager was very pushy and unprofessional and provided details after the fact that contradicted prior comments. I increasingly had a bad feeling this position/place throughout the post-interview/offer process. The most unprofessional thing was agreeing to reimburse me for travel expenses, which were high since I don't live in the area, but not doing so. I have since emailed HR 3 times, and they never respond to my calls or emails - obviously they do not stand behind their words and commitments. I do not recommend working/interviewing here unless you have money to burn, there are better research firms in the DC area

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was difficult or surprising. They asked about my prior research experience and why I wanted to move to the area   Answer Question
