    Research Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was with the PI of the lab I applied for. This interview went very well and the job description was very attractive. It lasted about two and a half hours, and he invited me to come back and meet with two other associates in the lab. This is when it started to go down hill. During the second interview, the associates made it seem like the lab had very little work-life balance and badmouthed different people who were working in the lab. They could not come up with any other benefits of taking the job other than the reason of, "The [PI] can give a great reference!"

    Then, after not hearing anything for a full week, the PI messages me the offer, almost 20k below the agreed upon amount. The offer was so low, that after taxes, the salary would be below the poverty line, for a position that required specialized experience and a higher degree. Sad, because the job itself was my dream job, if the job itself could get a rating: 5/5, the people however, kind of ruined it with their unpleasantness and dishonesty.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went direct to in-person, no phone screening beforehand. There was a round two with a panel. The process moved along fairly quickly. There was campaign presentation before the panel. While the staff was largely female, there was no diversity at all, from either panel. Very surprising to see from a university which touts diversity and promotes a global mindset.

    After submitting an application online, I was chosen for an interview by the managers at the time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    One of the HR Directors asked me to complete a series of Microsoft Office software tests (Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint). The testing software was good, unlike other software I have taken tests on that didn't seem to allow for multiple pathways to find an answer. This software wasn't perfect, but it was ok. I ended up scoring well.
