    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Child Trends.

    Interview

    The interview process included a phone interview approximately 2 months after I applied. This was followed by an in person interview day which required giving a job talk to approximately 40 people. The in person interview day included meetings with several Ph.D. level scientists. It was a very positive experience!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Child Trends.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. I had a phone screen and then was called in for a 1:1 interview, which actually turned into a series of 1:1 interviews. I think group interviews or multiple individual interviews are pretty normal across the organization. Everyone was extremely nice and engaging, and they asked about more than just experience (i.e. goals, career path). The people who interviewed me were genuinely interested in making sure that Child Trends would be a good fit for me long-term.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Child Trends (Bethesda, MD) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward with an initial 30-minute phone interview with HR, followed by a phone interview with a Research Scientist. The final two steps were an in-person interview at Child Trends with various program area members and a written exam.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Child Trends.

    Interview

    There was an online application that was followed up with a 30 minute phone interview. After advancing to the next stage, I was invited for an in person interview that consisted of a 30 minute interview with research analysts and research assistants, an hour interview with research scientist, senior scientists, and area directors, an hour job talk, a 30 minute interview with the director of research operations, and an overview of the benefits with HR. After the in-person interview they interviewed my references, and had me complete a writing assessment.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions seemed difficult or unexpected. Most of the time I felt like I was having a conversation about the work that I do with people who share my interests. Although the interview process in and of itself was intensive, everyone was really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in my work.   Answer Question
