    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Councils for International Education.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted on Skype and included two supervisors who asked thought-provoking questions which tested your wit and judgment. The interviewees did not dress formally and were pretty casual and humorous. The interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Interview

    It was completely unprofessional. I had no idea when the interview would be taking place or whether it would take longer than expected. Overall, I got through it because it was very easy and I could sweet talk the interviewers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Councils for International Education (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I have never been through a more unprofessional interview than this one. The interviewer ended up being about 10 minutes late, but then continued throughout the entire length of the interview to remind me that we had to stick to a time schedule. They were constantly checking the time to see how much time was left. Two of the interviewers continued to bicker with each other throughout the interview which not only took away time from the "strict schedule" but showed a lack of professionalism making me question the work ethic of their employees. Questions were easy but for the interviewer continued to interrupt between each question before I had the opportunity to give my full response. I feel sorry for the person that they ended up hiring that has to work with them.

    Interview

    Had two in-person interviews with the senior program manager at the American Coucils office. Questions included sharing my background and experience, capacity to problem solve and overcome challenges, and strengths and weaknesses. Was also asked to talk through how I would address a student case study. Staff was very genial and open to talking about the position and work culture.

    Program Officer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at American Councils for International Education (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I heard back initially from the organization for an interview, and one was set up in a reasonable amount of time. The initial interview was a one-on-one discussion with the program/hiring manager and lasted for well over an hour. Following that interview, I did not hear anything (even after a thank you follow-up). I then was contacted exactly a month later for a second interview, after I had written the position off (due to not hearing). I returned for a second interview to meet the rest of the team, as well as one of the organization's directors. I again sent follow up thank you notes and just never heard from the organization ever again. I have no doubt that the work that this organization does is meaningful (which was my reason to apply in the first place), but this was the most unprofessional interview process I have ever had.

    After submitting my application through the online system, I was contacted a week later for an interview. The interview was scheduled for a week after the initial email contact. Three staff from American Councils for International Education interviewed me, and they all took turns asking me questions. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Councils for International Education (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    There is a fairly extensive online questionnaire with specific questions that you are never asked about. You get called in for an interview, with your potential work supervisor and their supervisor. I was asked standard interview questions that can be prepared for by reading the job description and responsibilities.

    • One question that was very difficult asked me to predict a solution to a problem that I didn't know the company standard operation procedure for (but I was sure existed).   Answer Question

    The department I applied to contacted me within a week of my application to set up an in-person interview. The process was quick and mostly to make sure I could speak coherently - I was offered the position after the interview concluded.
