Senior Economist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The World Bank (Washington, DC) in February 2013.

Interview

Took way too long, too many people, canned questions. The questions were obvious. Some interviewers spent more time showing off than they did listening. Very annoying process.

    Senior Economist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The World Bank (Washington, DC) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Standard panel of 6 people asking structured questions. A walk through of the CV, why do you want this job? How can you contribute? What would do if...? etc etc. There are very strict hiring targets for women and people from developing countries, so the interview, your skills, your education, are only marginally useful.

    Negotiation

    No. HR decide the salary and that's it.
