    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Dougherty & Associates (Alexandria, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen, panel interview, writing exercise, and final interview with management. It was pretty straight forward. Each interviewer took the time to talk about the organization, their guiding principles, success factors, and their culture. They want you to understand the nature of the work, and want to make sure you're a good fit for their organization.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dougherty & Associates in February 2013.

    Interview

    Long and arduous. I went to three separate interviews and met a lot of staff. It was good to meet so many people, but when you are looking for work while already employed, investing this much time is a problem.

    Reasons for Declining

    After meeting the leaders, I felt they spent more time talking about being great than actually being great.

    Strategic Communications Writer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dougherty & Associates (Washington, DC) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview with a recruiter. She was very professional and extremely thorough. She explained step by step what I should expect from the interview process. She said I'd be interviewed by two panels that would be made up of three people: a supervisor, an HR person and a peer. She explained I'd need to submit writing samples and I'd be required to take a writing test. She talked about long hours with no overtime or comp time, but assured me employees were compensated in other ways. I knew by the end of the call, I wasn’t what they were looking for. I probably could’ve winged it, but I appreciated how much thought and time was being put into finding the right candidate and I knew it wasn’t me. Because this recruiter was so thorough, I saved myself and her company a lot of time and energy.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was a screening interview, so no real questions asked of me. Recruiter just explained interview process.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dougherty & Associates (Alexandria, VA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    3 interviews- phone interview first by HR recruiter followed by panel interview and last interview one-on-one with practice lead. High-energy environment; professional staff, transparent communications were the top three things I recalled from my interview process. Since I've been employed here since then it's hard to detail my "pre-employed" thoughts.

    Interview Questions

    • No unexpected questions. All questions are difficult when you're in an interview, but I know my field well so it wasn't difficult to answer with confidence.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Outstanding negotiation process- superior, professional HR recruiter was my best advocate.

    What were you able to negotiate? What advice would you give others considering an offer?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dougherty & Associates in February 2010.

    Interview

    First, they asked basic questions and then the panel got more in-depth. Then they sent me a ridiculous timed exercise to do at home, which was so insulting to do as it was akin to Power Point 101. I did not like the people I talked to at all and when I asked about NOT having to work weekends, I could tell they were lying to me. This was the second time I had talked to them and I remembered not liking the vibes from the person I met at a job fair.
