    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Management Sciences for Health in January 2010.

    Interview

    Communications were poor--this is an organization with the worst HR department there is. HR is not paid well, and also attracts incompetent people. The team dynamics of the panel was great, but they clearly did not communicate with each other and asked the same questions over and over again. HR contacts you, does a brief screening interview, passes your information on to the hiring panel, they decide whether to call you in, and HR is supposed to set up an interview. However, if they forget, it looks like you decided not to show up. There are no consequences for mistakes in this organization.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    HR should never be the one to offer a salary, as they know nothing about how to do the job being offered. A hiring supervisor or manager should be the one to make offers and negotiate. HR lacks coordination skills in this, and ALWAYS low-balls everyone. Most entry level people are so desperate for a job that they accept $36K/year. Who can live on that? Once you accept a low salary, you have really put yourself in the gutter for future salary jumps especially with any USAID contractor thereafter. Don't do it.
