    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research in October 2017.

    Interview

    Went through email introduction. I was given an code test to take. Seemed good and standard. Once complete the code test, I was told to zip my files and send to the HR person.

    This is where it goes down hill.
    1.) They can't open zip files. So why ask for a zip file.
    2.) I sent my files through my github account.
    3.) I didn't here back from them at all. I just assumed they have github blocked or something.

    This was probably one of the strangest and wasteful interviews I have EVER DONE.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research.

    Interview

    At first, the HR replies the email very quickly. Even though she postponed my interview but the first interview was smooth and delightful. She asked me some general SQL questions and about my expected salary, when can I come to work, etc. Then she scheduled my next technical interview next week and told me about the overall process. She promised to send me detailed information later and looked forward to keeping in touch with me. I thought she was so efficient and thoughtful. Then came to the interview day, I waited and sent email, no reply and no phone calls. It's been two weeks after and still no update. I could understand that they may have better candidates or the position is filled. However, I would really appreciate if they could give me a reply.

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research.

    Interview

    I applied for the position on the AIR website. I was initially contacted by an HR rep via email about 2 weeks after I had applied. We set up a short (15-minute) phone screening, which was then followed by a 30-minute phone interview with two managers. This went well and so they immediately scheduled me for a 2 1/2 hour GoTo Meeting (similar to Skype). I talked with HR, then rotated with a couple people who were in the position I was applying for, as well as a couple Psychometricians. Overall, the interview went smoothly. I ended the interview feeling pretty confident. I was told I would hear back a week later. I didn't hear anything from HR, so I followed-up and was told they chose someone else

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research.

    Interview

    The interview process occurred over 4 months; communication for interview scheduling and at follow-up was poor. I applied online, had an initial interview and then a second interview two months later. In the second interview, I gave a research presentation and then met with several employees one-on-one throughout the day. The questions that I received were normal, nothing challenging (tell me about your research, your experience, etc.). After my interview, communications with AIR went silent. HR did not respond to my follow-up email two weeks after my interview inquiring about the status of my application. I didn't hear anything until a month later (following an additional follow-up e-mail) when I was told they gave the position to somebody else.
