    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA) in December 2016.

    I interviewed with ICF for a position in August that I did not get, but the recruiter and team that I interviewed with said they would stay in touch about future positions.

    Fast forward to December and one of the recruiters I had spoken to during my first interview contacted me about a position they thought I'd be a great fit for.

    -Phone interview with Test lead - Same kind of thing. Run though what you do now, your capabilities, technical skills
    -Application and background check with HireRight
    -In person interview with Testers, management. Not too bad, not super formal. Everyone was very polite.
    -Call from HR, discussion of salary requirements

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through their website. They contacted me about 10 days later for a phone interview with one of their staff. The staff person was nice but HR was disorganized, to say the least. For the phone interview, I had at one point 3 different people sending me emails trying to schedule me. I was then invited in for an in-person interview. Again, the 2 staff I met with were really nice, and I thought we got along well. The HR scheduling process for that interview was also disorganized. I was pre-scheduled for an interview during morning business hours (I am still employed elsewhere). When I wrote back to HR to propose some alternative times in the coming weeks, they were inflexible and scheduled me for that same morning time slot, 2 weeks later. They also told me that someone in HR would meet me before my interview and show me to where I would be interviewed. No one from HR showed up, and I was greeted directly by the staff member. I followed up at least twice via email with my HR contacts regarding the status of my application, but no one paid me the courtesy of actually responding. I work at a competitor of ICF's and was, up until this experience, quite interested in working at this company.

    Thank you Jennie Salehi!

    Although I'm not a current or former employee at ICF (which might be an additional feature for glassdoor - rate your recruiting experience prior to interviewing) I wanted to provide feedback on my recent recruiting experience with ICF. I was applying for a C-Suite position at ICF based upon an employee referral when I was contacted by Jennie Salehi. Jennie left me a voicemail to let me know that the position was closed - typically you don't hear from a recruiter if the position is no longer open, so I really appreciated her reaching out - but that's not the end of the story. Jennie went the extra mile to let me know that my resume had a formatting error - a call she didn't have to make. I called her the next day to let her know how much I appreciated what she had done. In most global organizations recruiters have become robotic and impersonal – knowing that they represent the brand of the organization and 9 out of 10 times they serve as the first brand touch point of any new hire regardless of level (first impressions still matter). There's something to be learned by Jennie's act of kindness and the fact that she was so gracious went a long way. Thank you again Jennie for your time and energy!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ICF (Columbia, MD) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a Recruiter who pulled my Resume from a job seekers site. After an initial screen, I was set up for a telephone interview the next day. I was contacted by two technical team members who discussed the job, asked some general (standard) interview questions, and then given a quick technical assessment to gauge my skills. Overall the process took about one hour and was very cordial and professional--no pressure. I was given a job offer within 2 days.
