    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at May Institute (Randolph, MA).

    Interview

    The Talent Acquisition team and HR were wonderful in the process. Friendly, caring and genuinely passionate about the mission. The senior executives do not act like they embrace the mission. They were cold and bordered on the line of disrespectful. It apparent that leadership micro manages.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at May Institute.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter for 5-10 minute interview/information session. Was invited back for an interview. Started out as a group for about 10 minutes and after a brief intro we were given about 1 hour of observation time in classrooms. After this I met with a hiring manager who was able to answer my questions and tell me more about the process. A few days later I was contacted again and a few weeks after background checks I was in orientation.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at May Institute (Randolph, MA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Very thorough and professional. Was initially contacted for a screening by the Director of Recruitment, then interviewed with the Manager, then final interview with the full team. A little intimidating, but overall a very thorough process, setting the bar pretty high.
    Initial corporate training was comprehensive and included all relevant information and anecdotal information, helpful in giving insight to the inner workings of the agency, again very professional and impressive.
