    Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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

    Got a call from recruiter to setup a technical phone interview. Upon my realization, it was the same recruiter taking my phone interview next week reading from a piece of paper and trying to get answers from me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR to set up a phone interview with a lead software developer on the team. When talking to the developer we discussed class work and went over my resume. About half way thought the interview he called me (female) sweetheart. While the interview went okay, I was not planning on taking the job after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Institutes for Research (Washington, DC) in July 2013.

    Interview

    After the initial phone screen, which included a light technical portion, I was brought in for an in-person interview. Which, I think was three sessions of 1 or 2 interviewers each. After the day was done, for some reason I had to be brought back again another day. That was a pain, as the office was not easy to reach via the Metro system.

    Things that stuck out with me were, even though this was a senior level .NET software engineering position, the interviewers kept hammering at computer science-type questions. Sometimes, that's fine and good, but I got the distinct feeling the ones interviewing me had little exposure to jobs outside of AIR. Salary levels seemed quite below the standard for the area too.

    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.
