    Business Optimization Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied online, had a preliminary interview phone call where I talked to the manager about my resume, and general desires to work at AARP and the position. Then I came in for an in-person interview. It was divided into three parts. First I met with the Business Optimization team, and discussed my fit for the position in more detail and my future professional ambitions. Second, I met with 2 managers, who explained to me the projects the team works on and their aims, and they wanted me to pinpoint my past experiences that empower me as a strong candidate. Last part was just meeting with two other heads to discuss any final concerns, etc. Overall, great experience - more like a discussion than being grilled.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work for AARP; Why do you want to go into consulting; How would the skills that you obtained from your past internship at --- help you in this position?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within 10 days for an initial phone screen. That went well, and they scheduled me to come in for an in-person interview with 2 people within the week. The in-person interview lasted about an hour and included set questions but was also conversational. I was provided with benefits information before the interview as well. Throughout the process, everyone was friendly and helpful. After the interview, I followed up with my HR contact a couple times, but never heard back about the status of my application (it's now been about a month since the interview). This greatly surprises me, as up until that point the contact was good about communicating with me. Because of this, I will think twice about applying at such an organization again.

    Program Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Mine was a one on one interview. Basic Standard questions but the behavioral questions are tough. You need to have answers prepped and rehearsed. Managers and above will most likely be a panel interview. HR hands them questions to ask.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were a car, what kind of car would you be and why?   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a VP and a SVP. The interview was a one on one format. It was a very laid back interview with a lot of probing questions. The questions from the VP were very detailed and required that you pay close attention that was being said.

    Digital Team Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is basically a personality interview that isn't particularly well planned. They do focus on some questions about how you would address specific problems, but aren't really prepared with follow up questions or a specific style that they would like. It was all a bit disorganized several people were late to the interview at their specific times and some repeated questions that had been asked. More than anything they left me with a bad impression of professional standards and ability of the people for whom I would be working.

    Phone screen went. Panel interview. After taking my time to interview, I never heard back from anyone. I thought they would have been a little professionally (especially in HR). Given the reputation of AARP, I would have expected more!
