    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Graduate Management Admission Council (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    The hiring process is bit cumbersome but no better or worse than most places. They did streamline it recently but not quite enough. The president participates in a lot of the interviews which is unnecessarily paternalistic in general, unnerving to many candidates, and frustrating to most hiring managers. He doesn't trust anyone under him, which is reflected in the hiring process with his participation for positions below the VP level.

    Interview Questions

    • What were your previous supervisor's strengths and weaknesses?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was made to feel that negotiation was not an option and then I found out that new hires after me did megotiate higher salaries or signing bonuses. So if you receive an offer, negotiate.

    Social Media Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Graduate Management Admission Council (Reston, VA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    HR screened the applicants, handled the phone screening, and participated in the first interview with the hiring manager. Interviews were clearly "by the book"--carefully scripted--and took several hours...but I didn't feel as though the script really pulled forth a solid sense of my skills and abilities. When the hiring manager would venture away from the script, the HR person was there to pull him back to his lines. Questions about previous experience resulted in conflicting feedback. Follow-up was not prompt.

    I chose to withdraw my candidacy and pursue other opportunities.
