    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at College Board.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR followed by 30 minute Technical screen and a 3 hour in person interview with a bunch of people. Enjoyed the interview process a lot. Got to meet the manager, technical engineers, directors and the VP as well. Prepare to be grilled hard on technical questions by engineers because they only want to select the best. People were genuine and friendly. No games. Got an offer in a few days. Very well managed by HR rep.

    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

    Associate Director Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at College Board (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a phone conversation and then 2 interviews in the NY office meeting with two and three people, respectively, at each visit

    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.

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

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at College Board (Tampa, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. One week later I received an email from HR to schedule a phone interview w/HR. The interview with HR was mostly walking through my resume and how it fit with the position I applied. A few days after the interview with HR I received another email to schedule another interview with the department VP. The 2nd interview was more focused on my skills, method of operation and walking though my qualifications for the job.
