Interview

The interview process and their responses are very slow. They discriminate against people who are not US citizen. They will ask for multiple presentations, but will not tell you what went wrong.

I applied online. I interviewed at National Journal in Oct 2020

Interview

I first heard back from the Program Manager TWO days after applying, which was an exciting prospect. We had a ~35 min preliminary phone call to discuss my professional experience and learn more about the center. The next day I received an exercise to create two PPT presentations on their articles/data. Another 1.5 weeks later, I had THREE video interviews with different staff and members of the team in a row for an hour and a half (really crammed them in). I thought that they all went well, but then I got radio silence after thanking them and asking if they need any more from me. Four weeks later, I was rejected.

Interview Questions

Interview

I participated first in a short phone interview with an analyst there -- mostly experience questions and the like, quite easy. During the second phone interview, I spoke with that same analyst, the department head, and another analyst. Harder questions, but still overall easy.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at National Journal (Santa Fe, NM)

Interview

The interviewer was extremely rude and unprofessional. She promised to have a response back to me by the end of the week, but it has now been two months since the original interview. The interviewer has not responded to any follow-up attempts and was very condescending.

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at National Journal in Mar 2018

Interview

It was pretty short and there were no surprise questions. They asked to describe yourself in 10 minutes or so , why I wanted to work there and if I had any questions. It was just a phone screen so I found that it didn't fit my interest as much during the interview.
