    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at RAND (Washington, DC) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was very straightforward. I applied online, was contacted within three weeks about coming to DC for an interview, and interviewed the next month for the position. The interview was conducted over the course of one day, with 8 30-minute one-on-one interviews with research directors, as well as a lunch with individuals who had the position for which I applied. I was very impressed by everyone who interviewed me and found the process smooth and enjoyable.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked by several interviews to name specific projects/reports published by RAND and analyze their content, as well as provide my own opinion on the research.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really room for negotiation, but the offer was very fair.

    Senior Research Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RAND (Washington, DC) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Long, full-day interview with many knowledgeable employees. They were very interested in my skill set but were not very forthcoming in describing their work environment or the details of the role I was applying for. While I knew I would be joining a smart company, I was not sure I would have enjoyed the "fit".

    Interview Questions

    • They asked many detailed questions about my knowledge of certain datasets and the types of policy questions that the data were used to answer. The questions they asked were very skillful in determining whether my skill set was to be of good use there.   Answer Question
