    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at College Board (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    I was introduced to the company through a Recruiter who arranged a phone interview with the company. I had the phone call where I was asked to tell the interviewer about myself and why do I think I qualify for the position. I was given a work situational question. I was told there is no right or wrong answer. The interviewer said the question's purpose is so he can hear my analytical and problem solving thought process. The following week I had a 1:1 meeting with the hiring manager. A few days later I had another interview with his manager and about 48 hours later I got the offer.

    Application

    I interviewed at College Board (Reston, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Approximately 30 minute interview with the hiring manager (one-on-one), followed by another approximately 30 minute interview with some members of the team (panel format).

    Interview with the hiring manager was more of a conversation of what I would be doing; I also went through my resume/experience/background. Manager came prepared for the interview and was very thorough--we reviewed all of my experience. Pleasant conversation.

    Interview with the team members was more of your typical interview format--I went over my resume/experience/background again. The physical setup of the room was a bit odd--there was no table, so we eventually ended up sitting around this open space/void. I had a lot of difficulty understanding the intent (i.e., reading between the lines) of the questions of one interviewer--I would answer one way only to find out that the interviewer was looking for a completely different answer. For the other team members I didn't have any issues with properly answering their questions. Everyone seemed prepared for the interview.

    I know that College Board gets rather poor Glassdoor ratings (overall 2.8 as of this review), but I wasn't able to discern why from my interview. The office facilities in Reston seem decent (from what I saw walking into the interview). The two people I did ask had been with College Board for many years and didn't seem interested in leaving. Maybe the team I was interviewing with was an anomaly within the overall organization and is a better place to work at then the rest of the organization?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at College Board (Reston, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First there was a brief phone interview. Then they brought me in to interview with HR. However, one Director and two Associate Directors were there as well. Each Director took turn asking questions. Then I interviewed with HR. The in-person interview lasted about an hour and a half. Overall it went well, but at one point the Director was distracted by her cellphone which really bothered me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at College Board (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Most unprofessional interview I've ever had. HR lined up more than a dozen candidates in the same room, waiting for hours for the technical interviews. It is like a "gladiator" scene. After surviving the farce of the first round, I was called back for management interview. The questions were vague, CTO (or is it CIO?) was a no show. Received a curt email from HR that I was no longer in the run.

    Months later, HR contacted me for the same job. Are you kidding?
