    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at College Board in February 2014.

    Interview

    Typically first there is a phone interview, then an in person interview and then a long waiting period before you find out if you got an offer or not. Very slow process

    Application

    Interview

    Interview Questions

    • It was challenging because each employee was talking to me as if I already had the position. It was a good feeling but also a little confusing. No real questions were asked but more of a conversation regarding the goals and objectives of the position   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did try and negotiate for a flexible schedule but it seems as though that depends on your manager and varies from department to department. I did not negotiate salary.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at College Board (New York, NY) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Interviews with people in my dept and several from completely unrelated departments. It wasn't actually that the interview process was bad, it's that it was just strange that I interviewed with people that I would never see again for the duration of my employment.

    Interview

    They will email you times for a phone interview and you are able to pick. They’re pretty good about working with you on that. Then they will have a phone interview with you as a screener and then an in-person interview if they’re interested in you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at College Board in April 2019.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screening with someone from HR to make sure I met the minimum qualifications of the program. They asked me a few questions about my technical skills, but didn't ask for specifics. This was followed by a one on one interview with a programmer from the team I would work for. She was very nice and told me about what I would be doing if hired, described their technology stack, and asked me questions based off of my resume. They said they would follow up within a week either way. After they didn't follow up within that time frame, I accepted another internship offer. They ended up getting back to me 2 or 3 weeks later asking for another interview, which I declined. In the future, they should stick to their timelines or provide communication as to when they would follow up.
