    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research in May 2018.

    Interview

    The process was very straightforward. I applied online and within the same day was contacted by HR to set-up a screening interview with an interview, which took place the following week. Then two weeks after that, I had two Skype interviews (in the same day) with 2 staff members and then a senior manager. I got an offer the following morning. Throughout the process, everyone was very warm and easy to talk to.

    Interview

    They were very focused on tasks rather than management or educational accomplishments. I felt like I was walking into a nail salon. The office was unorganized and the receptionist desk had masking tape holding it together

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research (San Mateo, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Email correspondence with the H.R. representative was slow and disorganized. The process lasted from December to March. It consisted of an initial phone interview, second GotoMeeting interview with research team, and job offer. In the interim I was able to find a job that was all around a better fit, and declined their offer.

    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research (Washington, DC) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and a recruiter called me to schedule a phone interview with a senior member of the team. The phone interview lasted about an hour and was very technical due to the technical nature of this position. Following the phone interview, I was asked to complete a coding assessment within 3 days. About two weeks after I submitted the assessment, the recruiter reached out to schedule an in-person interview with the entire team at the headquarter in DC. The half-day interview took about 3 hours, with half-hour time slots with different team members, from senior level to associate level.

    I would say that the phone interview and the coding assessment were definitely okay overall, but the in-person interview was a bit confusing and also very stressful, because of the various different (even conflicting) expectations from different members of the team about this position. I was asked a lot of technical questions for which one of the interviewers was expecting a certain fixed answer, and the in-person interview was actually different than I had imagined. I was also asked questions about experience and qualifications that were not included in the job description, and it seems that the interviewers did not quite get on the same page about what to expect about this role. Overall, I would say that this entire interview process was very stressful and mildly unpleasant.
