    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Princeton, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Princeton, NJ) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled for the same day I had my first Toastmaster speech at this company. The Toastmaster members knew about the interview and were supportive of both the speech and interview. I interviewed directly with the Hiring Manager, who seemed to know my personal history and who seemed to be very sympathetic to helping me return to the workforce full-time after I had been a stay-at-home mom to twins. She was extremely respectful and encouraging.

    Interview Questions

    • How I handled the challenges I mentioned on my resume that I had tackled. There were probably more, but it was a long time ago.   1 Answer

    Clerical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ewing, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service (Ewing, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I drove 45 minutes just to find out they rescheduled open house. I received no such notice via email or phone only a note on the door when I got there. I came back again a second time, and they said they couldn't find my application (which took almost an hour to fill out) and that the person who referred me doesn't even work at the specific site. They had no communication at all with the recruiter who reached out to me. I sat waiting for more then 3 hours just to be told that they aren't hiring anyone else. The manager was rude and sarcastic and told me to come back next week, so I picked up my stuff and left.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Educational Testing Service in February 2015.

    Interview

    There was a very intense Q&A session on extremely detailed questions about why Oracle does what it does executing SQL code. It appeared right away there are serious issues with the application code and the DBA's spend most of their time chasing down badly written SQL.

    Interview

    I applied through a special program at my school. Was contacted by phone for an interview a few weeks later. It was a pretty relaxed interview, spoke with the internship coordinator, and then two departments that were interested in me. All fit/behavioral type questions, going over my resume. Everyone was very nice.

    Interview Questions

    • I think one was something like "Can you describe a time when you had a problem during group work." Can't really remember.   Answer Question
