    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AAAS (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    One month after submitting my application, I received an e-mail with an editing exercise. I was told I had 2 weeks to complete it. A couple of weeks later, I followed up, and they told me they were still reviewing applications. Two months later, I have not heard back from them. I initially applied in February!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AAAS (Washington, DC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very standard process. From submitting the application to receiving an offer took about a month all in all. I applied online, then a few weeks later they contacted me and sent me an editing test. After I did the test they asked to set up an interview. At the interview I met with HR first and then met with two senior editors in the department. After the interview they asked for professional references, and I received an offer about a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very standard. They asked a lot of questions about previous work experience and how it applies to this position.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AAAS.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview consisted of a phone interview which pretty much went over main points on my resume and my interest in the position. The questions were pretty standard behavioral interview format. However, the hiring process took a bit longer than expected. While the position was stated to start the first week of June I only received confirmation I got the internship a little under 2 weeks before. This made it a little difficult to find housing. Besides this, the hiring process was fairly straightforward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at AAAS (Washington, DC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    A brief (30-minute) phone interview with the managing editor of one of the journals at AAAS. It was a very casual and enjoyable, yet informative conversation and we discussed my experiences in writing, editing, and copy editing, as well as what I wanted to pursue professionally after the internship. We also discussed some of my coursework and how it had aptly prepared me for an editorial position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AAAS in July 2014.

    Interview

    I sent in a standardized application and my resume online. A week or so later, I got interviewed by the two people in charge of my department. The interview was very casual and friendly. I was asked about my technical skills, experience, people skills, foreign language skills, and the applicability of my (non-science) graduate degree.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't think any of the questions asked were particularly unusual. It was mostly how my previous experience applies to this position, and what I did during my graduate degree.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as well as I should have. I had been unemployed for a while after grad school, and I was really just relieved to have a good offer.
