    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I was contacted a few weeks later by a recruiter. After speaking with him on the phone, I was contacted by a second recruiter about a week later. They arranged for two separate phone interviews between me and two staff members with whom I would be working closely. About two weeks after the phone interviews, I was asked by the recruiter to set up an in-person interview with the two team members I had already spoken with plus two others I would work alongside. The in-person interview was originally four 30-minute one-on-one interviews, but 3 of the team members decided to interview me at once rather than one after the other. It took a couple of days to hear back regarding an informal offer, then a couple of weeks for a formal offer (which I told is not normal, but it took longer than anticipated for the recruiter to get approvals from higher management).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ICF (Fairfax, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online as well as I sent my resume to a former co-worker who now works for ICF. I met with the hiring VP for a little over an hour, discussed at length the position, expectations, the makeup of the team, and what she and the Executive VP of the business unit were looking for. I was then brought back to interview with the Executive VP. Both times the HR recruiter met me and walked me to my interviews, she was very nice and helpful. In advance of the interviews I received an email from ICF with information on the company, initiatives and goals of the company. I found the information to be very informative and helpful.

    Contracts Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of an initial phone interview with a recruiter, followed by an in-person interview at their Fairfax office. Phone interview with recruiter went fine, but everything after soured my impression of this company. I had to play a game of phone tag in order to reach the second recruiter who was to set up the in-person interview. This was an effort that spanned over the course of a week or more as the recruiter was not very easy to get ahold of. I was not given an email to contact her, only a phone number, which was inconvenient. Nonetheless, I remained patient as she worked to align all individuals' schedules. After finally securing an interview in person, I was to meet with three different individuals, one of which who, upon my arrival, was sick and switched out at the last minute for another person. Last-minute interview with the first two individuals from the Contracts department went decently, but the second interview with a manager was absolutely terrible. He seemed completely disinterested in anything I had to say, and looked like he was about to fall asleep on that spot. It didn't seem like he had even taken a single glance at my resume before I stepped into the room. After barely asking me any questions, we concluded the interview. After not hearing back for two weeks from the recruiter, I followed up. I was informed that they were still reviewing candidates and determining next steps. After this communication, they never bothered to give me any further updates. Given that I was applying out of state and had gone through the trouble of traveling several hours to that interview, I found it rather unprofessional that a potential candidate be treated this way.
