    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AAAS (Washington, DC) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the HR department about a month and a half after applying. The entire process after that took about one month to complete. I first interviewed with their talent acquisitions coordinator via phone. She asked me normal screening questions regarding my salary requirements, my background, and skills. She also asked me to rate my technical skills on a scale from 1 to 10. A few days later I was contacted about a second in-person interview. That interview was with my direct supervisor and the head of the department. They were very friendly but straightforward. Half of the interview was comprised of normal questions, and the other half was behavioral/scenario questions. These questions posed situations where I would be faced with a difficult task or problem and I had to tell them how I would solve it. At the end, there was plenty of time for me to ask questions. They also gave me a chance to say some last words about myself that I might not have covered during the interview. After the interview, I had another brief meeting with the HR coordinator to debrief the interview. Two days later I was contacted to send references and a degree verification release form. About 6 business days later I received an offer.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted 1 week later for an interview. I was asked to provide writing samples in advance of the interview. When I arrived, I first met with the HR manager, who asked mostly about work history, related job skills, strengths/weaknesses and other standard interview questions. Next, HR administered a timed editing test on the computer. The time allotted for this test was not nearly long enough to get through the whole document, but I suppose they wanted to see how quickly you can work. Next, I met with the hiring manager who asked about my experience specific to this position. The manager also shared details about the position. I
