    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at APA (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Brief interview with HR by phone and an in-person interview with he supervisor. Both were very comfortable and conversational. I think I answered most of HR's questions in my responses to their first two questions. The in-person interview followed a standard set of questions.

    HR manager called me to schedule an appointment. The interview took place at HQ in Washington, DC. The process took me about 20-30 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at APA.

    Interview

    Informal, comfortable. Based on my resume I had already received the internship, it is a competitive place to work in. Regardless, the environment was welcoming and I was given an overview of the many tasks I would have. In the end, I was asked if I would like to receive the position and given a tour.

    Government Relations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at APA.

    Interview

    The online application was very creative, and asked a lot of questions to get a who the interviewee is. It really made me think. The in person interviews were mostly a series of pre-planned questions so that they could fairly evaluate each person. The questions were interesting, but this did leave little time for any back and forth. Overall, I found it fun, though a bit nerve-racking because they were trying to be as deadpan as possible.

    Business Development Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at APA (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Monumental waste of time. Two in-person interviews with a total of 4 people, plus a request to submit an original writing sample and then radio silence... terribly rude treatment of job candidates. Have yet to hear back, but am not holding my breath. Even if I was made an offer, I would reject it.

    Watch out for these folks... APA played a large role in torture at Guantanamo Bay. If you don't believe me, just search the internet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at APA (Washington, DC) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I applied and received an email within a week. Set up the time for the interview. I first interviewed with HR and then I interviewed with the manager of the department. The interview was great, I felt relaxed and was able to answer all the questions. However, I didn't hear back until months after the interview and by that time I knew that I didn't get the position. Although, it would have been more considerate if they would have communicated sooner.
