    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Population Council (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone interview with HR to discuss availability and basic qualifications. A short phone interview then took place with the hiring manager. It was brief and just reviewing my resume. Lastly, I came in for face-to-face interviews with the hiring manager, a programmer, and a statistician separately. Most of the interview was actually listening to them discuss the role and the product and work. There were very few questions asked of me. Afterwards, a short programming test was given.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Population Council in September 2010.

    Interview

    The HR department can be slow to pull relevant CVs for the hiring team. Once the potential candidates have been identified, the process moves faster. Interviewee speaks with the managing employee and as many as five other employees that are on the relevant team.
