    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eastern Research Group, Inc. (Arlington, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in September, Phone Interview in January, Invited on site for interview in February, offered job a week later. Phone interview was position description and resume clarification. On site interview was all day, taken out for meals, was very laid back and conversational. They don't drill on specific topics or background information. Technical presentation was most stressful part, but as long as you know your topic, it's not too bad.

    Junior Editor/Production Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eastern Research Group, Inc..

    Interview

    The process of getting an interview was relatively straightforward, and about a week or 2 after submitting an application online, I was asked to come into the offices for a 1-on-1 interview. The interview itself was typical, followed by an editing portion at the end (because of the nature of the position I was applying for). People in the office were very kind and personable, but it was very disappointing that after coming for an in-person interview, there was no follow up from anyone in the company even to say that the position had been filled.
