    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Environmental Defense Fund (San Francisco, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The 3rd party interviews for EDF. The first interviewer was a senior in the company and was very friendly. The second interviewer was more to the point. However, I think the first one was the important one, and in the second interview, they were evaluating the first phase options.

Your supervisor will put you on the spot and asks you to explain what is the importance of what you do in one minute. What would you tell them?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Environmental Defense Fund.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back after 4+ weeks. I had three interviews, one over skype and two over the phone. The first interview, over skype, was with a direct supervisor, the two subsequent were with people who were progressively higher up in the organization. The interview process took about 2 weeks, but it seemed like it would usually take less time, we just had a lot of scheduling problems.
