    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics (College Park, MD).

    Interview

    Most questions were behavioral, but as an intern, that's a given. My interview was with the department head and who my supervisor would be, so I was a little intimidated at first, but everyone is honestly really friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics (College Park, MD).

    Interview

    I applied for the position in October 2013 and was eventually called for an interview in January 2014. I was told that the holidays had caused the delay, a bit odd. Before going to the interview I met with the HR manager, who excitedly told me all about the benefits; she was really selling it hard. In person I met with the two senior researchers - they were great. Both were very smart, asked thoughtful questions - I thought it would be a lot of fun working with them. I was told that they had a few interviews the following week and I should hear something soon. I finally heard back from the hiring manager in March; she wanted me to come in for a second interview as soon as possible. I politely declined.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions rather I thought it was odd how hard the HR manager was selling AIP's benefits. During my first phone interview the HR manager very excitedly told me that they could offer me the same salary I'm currently making. Also, I was surprised when she told me that AIP was not like corporate America - you didn't move up until someone left.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics (Melville, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I had already worked for this company and had been outsourced. They called me back to be temp receptionist. When receptionist decided to retire, I applied for the job, and got it. But the interview process was not a traditional one, as I was a temp there for 3 months and they knew me. Very informal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics.

    Interview

    We initially communicated via email and I was hired after a brief phone interview. The hiring manager was very pleasant, and the interview was very casual. A background investigation was completed by the HR team. The main aim of the interview was to gauge my enthusiasm for the physical sciences and see if I would like to help them with their programs management.

    Interview Questions

    • The hiring manager said, "I'm sure this is not what you would like to do forever, but we could really use your help." This was not a question, but it really set a tone for our discussion about where I could go and what could happen if I stay at AIP.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics (College Park, MD) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick, almost as though the decision were already made. I didn't really need to talk. The great majority of the interview was my supervisor talking about what I would be doing. The phone interview prior to the 1:1 involved questions concerning my resume, so my answers there were also very quick and straightforward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Institute Of Physics in May 2019.

    Interview

    Phone screen with outside recruitment agency. Video screen with the boss of the initial agent. The woman who conducted the video screen was condescending, She rolled her eyes while I responded to one of the questions; cut me off during another because I was giving her a "for example" rather than a direct answer, and at the conclusion I saw her mouth "oh boy" and shake her head. She could not answer a single solitary question about the job, so why even bother asking if I had any questions.

We went throught my experience and motivations with the hiring manager. I was told I was probably over qualified for the job and we agreed that it probably was not the best career path.
