    Pinged by a recruiter on LinkedIn who arranged a call with the hiring manager. Was given a skills test to complete with ample time to complete it followed up by a couple more phone interviews. Final step was an in person interview. All interviews were laid back and put me at ease allowing opportunity to really discuss capabilities and strengths.

    Took 4+ weeks, I had an initial screening, two back-to-back phone interviews, and an in-person interview in their Fairfax office. Everyone was very friendly, however they said they would get back to me about a decision and did not contact me for 2 weeks.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    After sending in an application in October 2016, they scheduled a phone interview in early December and I was then asked to come in for a final round interview in mid-January. Up until the final round interview, the process was relatively smooth and pleasant, and I enjoyed the over-the-phone interview with a current employee.

    In mid-January I traveled to the Fairfax office for an all-day interview and met a number of people, from lower-level to senior employees. In the interview they told a group of us interviewees that there were multiple positions open and we should hear from them within two weeks (typical). I never heard back, despite sending individual thank you letters through the mail and sending three follow-up emails to the HR coordinator January-March.

    I would expect a large consulting firm to not follow-up after a phone interview or even a short in-person interview, but the lack of decency to even send a rejection email astounded me considering the amount of resources they devoted to scheduling a six hour interview in their Headquarters. Since interviewing, I've spoken with multiple former employees who are happy they left, citing increasing disorganization and hierarchical tension.
