    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PATH (Washington, DC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a screening call with a recruiter, followed by a couple more screening calls dues to changes in HR. After about 1 month I spoke with the hiring manager, for about 30-40 min. At last I had an on-site interview with the entire core team.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PATH (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend for the role. Sue Wallace (senior recruiter) contacted me for the first round of interview and it was a really pleasant call with an genuine effort to get to know me as a candidate and a person. I then had a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager and another interview with the strategy team. The questions were all extremely intelligent digging into the nitty gritties of practical project management experience. Even though challenging, I enjoyed every bit of it. Kudos to Sue to be fully involved both pre and post interview process.

    Interview

    Avoid PATH at all costs! This company wastes your time with 6 (yes, 6!!) interviews. They say they will get back to you, but 3 weeks (!!) go by without a word. Disrespectful and Unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PATH (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Very professional and courteous HR team kept me informed of each step along the way. Began with an initial phone screen and then there were several one on one interviews plus an assessment. They took a long time to reach a decision at the final stage, but other than that the process was very straight forward and transparent.

    Vice President Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PATH.

    Interview

    Only outsiders seem to be valued at the new PATH. The interview was perfunctory and obviously not serious. Several new hires have doubled up their responsibilities rather than offer leadership opportunities to existing senior staff.
