Senior Research Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA).

Interview

The interview was 5 hours. Includes a half hour presentation with 30 minutes of discussion, and lunch with a team member. I interviewed individually with 3 senior level managers, as well as with 3 junior team members at once. It's a long day, but typical for PhD level researchers. ICF will pay for travel and accommodations for the interview. I did not relocate, but I do know that they also have a relocation program should you choose to move for this job. I was hired almost immediately after interviewing.

The interview was a few weeks after I submitted my application, but only because I was traveling and couldn't interview immediately. Prior to the interview, I had a phone screening with a person from HR.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

They are not known for negotiating salaries, nor are they known for paying well. I was offered a salary $13,000 below the market rate, and was only able to negotiate an additional $3,000. I took the job because no other companies were hiring at the time, but left a year later.
