    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Online app; callback from a gatekeeper; invited to complete questionnaire; invited to submit writing samples; phone interview with mid-level staffer; then in-person interview with senior-level staffer. The whole four-month string along was a racket to learn enough to attempt to fill an RFP intelligently in a field the company knows nothing about.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I heard about the position through my institutional network and reached out to a current employee. He gave me some background about the company and I applied for the position a few weeks later online. I heard back the same day and was asked to complete a supplemental questionnaire. My interview was scheduled for the next week. The interviewer was friendly and asked mostly questions about my character, team-building skills, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio.

    Interview

    I was super interested in this company when they came to my universities career fair. I applied and started the whole interview process. Super easy. They let me know they were interested in doing an in-person interview at their office and asked my availability for the next week. I provided it and then didn't hear back for 3 weeks. I was graduating and was hoping this would be where I ended up afterward. However, in those 3 weeks I had to find another job because I couldn't keep waiting. I was really disappointed.

    Case Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio (Arlington, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Don't waste your time. I was already wary of this company due to its poor Glassdoor reviews, but thought I'd go through with the interview anyway and see what they offered me. Made it through about four stages - phone interview, writing samples, company-knowledge assessment, and a little timed how-well-do-you-know-our-CEO-and-our-local-company-awards-write-ups editing assessment. The phone interview was a joke - I felt like I was talking to a 15-year-old and it was clear she was reading off a sheet, asking me rote questions and processing none of my replies. The editing assessment about the CEO and the local award write-ups was also a joke (how is that relevant in assessing my skills or expertise for this role?) and I literally said "are you kidding me?" when I reviewed the test and realized that this was the big "skills assessment" I was supposed to complete in 30 minutes or less (consisted of googling their awards and CEO and telling them "right" or "wrong" to won-best-business-of-the-year-2009 or CEO's-name-is-spelled-this-way).

    Overall, just a bogus interview process that is robotic and in no way effective - I was overqualified for this position and they sent me a nonsensical email at the end saying that "We do not have any positions that match your background at this time, but we plan to keep your resume on file" (Thanks, but don't bother). This whole process took over 3 months - not worth the time or headache for such a low-ranking position. They are unprofessional in their communications and take forever to get back to you, and there is no clear figurehead to deal with - you'll be dealing with about 3 different 15-year-old seeming staffers who appear disorganized and confused about the merits of the positions for which they conduct interviews. BEWARE, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, LISTEN TO THE OTHER REVIEWS.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started with an initial phone screening, I provided writing samples and filled out their application, they had me do a research based case study, and finally I had an in person interview downtown. The process took about 2 months and I was in contact with many different people within the organization. I definitely had a positive experience with each person I talked with, so I am not quite sure where all these negative reviews are coming from.

    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Arc Aspicio (Washington, DC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred by a mutual acquaintance. Sent in my resume and received a phone interview two days later. Less than a week later, I had an in-person interview with the project manager for the contract I would be working on.
    We negotiated over some details and then I accepted a contingent offer. There was a delay due to the background check backlog at the Government agency. I just accepted my final offer and set a start date.

    Overall, everyone from HR was pleasant, courteous, and responsive. Even when we didn't quite see eye to eye, it did not feel adversarial, nor did it leave a bitter taste.

    I was a bit concerned, having read some of the other reviews, so I made sure to get details on the contract they were hiring for as early as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of the standard questions. Expect to be asked why you specifically want to work for Arc Aspicio. They take pride in their culture and focus, and if you miss that, I would imagine you would not be viewed positively.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I negotiated, but don't expect too much wiggle room. They seemed very set on what they were willing to offer. It was a positive experience, although I would've liked to see them budge a bit more.

    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and was told they wanted to continue the process. They asked me to fill out their application online as a next step, then nothing else happened and they didn't even respond to emails. I'd been told they want "talent in the pipeline" so they always have a pool to choose from, and I get that, but I walked away with a bitter taste in my mouth after the way they handled it.

    For what it's worth, a friend who interned with them gave them an overall negative review.
