    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence.

    Interview

    First a screening call w/ an HR person going over the position. Then a series of writing tests, and aptitude tests. I elected to not proceed with the tests after reading the horrendous reviews of the work/life balance at the firm. I have worked third shift at ops centers before, and understand both the necessity of the shift and its difficulties. the idea that you can keep all analyst on this shift all the time is short-sighted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Reston, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    You'll take a barrage of tests -- IQ, Wonderlic/Cognitive, at least one writing test and a series of interviews. One thing that stuck out was how one interviewer noted the ''cost benefit analysis" that will take place after you pass all of the tests and interviews. This is a way of saying, we'll compare you to other potential hires, and we'll hire the cheapest one.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Reston, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    This posting is a scam: the interviewer takes more than 1 hr on the phone and 3 hours of your time in person asking you how you'd market the company stealing the equivalent of $3k worth of consulting intelligence. Then they won't hire you b/c you're undoubtedly going to get a pop question about a foreign government wrong.

    Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    incredibly long, drawn-out, inefficient and inconsiderate of applicants. This organization's leadership is either incredibly clueless about how to attract and retain top talent, or they are so arrogant that they don't believe a professional recruiting process should bear any consideration for applicants. To me, that is a red flag and consistent with the negative reviews I've read here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence in June 2016.

    Interview

    Started off on a positive note, I applied online and received a call from somebody in management that essentially screened applicants and explained what the firm does, and what is expected from analysts, including work schedule etc. Thereafter I promptly received instructions from HR to undertake a personality and aptitude test and was promised feedback as soon as it becomes available. 2 weeks past, I reached out to query the status of my application and was informed that the hiring manager had not even looked at my application - was told to give it several more weeks. After week 6 I reached out again and never received the courtesy of a response.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    1.Submit cover letter.
    2. Interview with HR, including a pop quiz.
    3. Wonderlic test. and (quick) reading/writing test.
    4. Interview with marketing manager.
    5. Conversation with future team/ coworkers.
    6. Reference check, background check.
    7. Offer letter.

    They mentioned they needed to fill the position quick and the first 6 steps went pretty quickly, from 1 to 5 in under 2 weeks!

    Then nothing. I had given them my references to reach out to, they said they would, they emailed all 3 of my references, scheduling a phone call with 1 immediately: the manager cancelled that 10 minutes AFTER they were supposed to speak, scheduling another time the week after. The other 2 references (I later found out) both responded with possible times as well. THEY NEVER HEARD FROM BULLETIN AGAIN. Neither did the first reference, that had now scheduled twice to speak with Bulletin. No follow up or apology. One of the most unprofessional things I have come across in my entire career.

    For the 4 weeks that followed, I called twice a week to check up on the progress, the marketing manager never picked up or returned my calls and HR would give the same answer every time: The position has not been filled, you are top of the list, the marketing manager will call you back asap, we are very busy. They sent me information packets on the healthcare options and other benefits.This to me was a positive sign so I allowed more time to pass every time.

    After a grueling 4 weeks of this, I got a terribly cowardly and unprofessional email from the marketing manager saying that the position had been filled for a while and that she had just been "doing due diligence" to see if she would have been able to place me somewhere else....

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence in April 2016.

    Interview

    Sent my resume on LinkedIn. I had a Skype Interview that was rather difficult. The interview was a total of 30 minutes. I did not really understand what the company actually did because the interviewer was saying everything so quickly. The first half was the interviewer describing the position and asking basic interview questions. The next half was a 'pop quiz' about current events around the world.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Reston, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I don't have much of an opinion regarding the interview process. The recruiter preferred a face-to-face Skype interview if possible, which I didn't mind. It was a very generic, get-to-know-you first interaction with general questions relating to you as a person and your qualifications. A fair warning to anyone applying to this position - the recruiter had a pop quiz of current events at the end of the interview for me. Being a media-related company, it's important to keep up with current events, so make sure you're prepared to answer questions. Some of the questions I was asked on the pop quiz are below.

    The interviewer was very friendly and personable. She asked pointed questions, but was not intimidating.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bulletin Intelligence (Alexandria, VA).

    Interview

    Was referred to by a friend. Had an initial phone interview / conversation with the recruiter who was very pleasant.
    I was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. I interview process took about 3 and 1/2 hours which included tests, and multiple interviews with HR, Development Manager and VP of IT.
    Th interview had more random questions than what you'd expect - for a software developer position which actually made the interview interesting. Overall the interview went well.
