    Operations Research Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MITRE (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Good experience. Had a couple phone interviews with non-HR, non-hiring personnel as a screen. Then phone with HR, followed up by a half-day on site where I made a presentation and met with a half-dozen would-be co-workers. All of them were exceptionally nice and professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviews were conversational, but probed for functional knowledge of modeling and statistics, and did dig into techniques and methods a bit. For a true math/stats person the Qs were probably on the easy side. If you're more of a generalist or non-technical they were more moderate. Certainly nothing especially difficult if you've gotten through the initial stages I'd guess.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at the MITRE site. My resume was passed on to the hiring manager who contacted me with request for a Phone screen. This was followed by a request for writing samples. Once my samples were reviewed, I was invited for an on-site interview. The interview lasted an hour.

Employment details were discussed during that conversation. About a week later, I received a formal offer.
