    Client Services Division Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ICMA-RC.

    Interview

    As an internal candidate I feel the interview process had a great flow from communicating with the HR recruiter to the hiring manager/division head. There was a hurdle in that the manager was promoted so a new manager would also need to be hired. This situation could possibly delay the hiring process.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICMA-RC (Washington, DC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter calls, does not know about IT or the position...wants to read it verbatim to me. Good thing I am using my time in the car on blu-tooth. Interviewer calls and calls late. This will become a pattern. Have 2 in person interviews and for each one, the interviewer from the IT department was over 30 minutes late. It you like being kept on ice without even the offer of coffee, than this will be the place for you.

    Interview Questions

    • Not unexpected or difficult... simply "tell me about yourself and why you want to work here".   1 Answer

    Interview

    Great Firm in a growing industry but the interview process is disorganized and multi layered with Human Resources in conflict with the individual departments. Avoid Client services division positions.

    Interview

    First had a phone interview the architect and then it was followed by face to face interview in the DC office.
    Face-Face interview was in two parts. First part two managers and the director interviewed me on various situational based questions. Questions were to evaluate the leadership and managerial skills.
    Second part was the technical interview with the architect. It was fairly technical considering more detailed technical interviews that I have gone through at other places.

    The offer was low end compared to similar positions in the market, specially considering the high cost of living in the area. Also they offered the lowest end of the range that was mentioned to me to begin with.
