    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview

    Met entire team and then met with HR to negotiate salary. I learned more about the team and the work than I anticipated which was incredibly helpful in making a decision to join. The HR team was very professional and efficient. The process was painless and quick. They made their decision and the on-boarding process was simple and the team was welcoming.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Spoke with HR manager first. Questions were general: why did I want to work there, tell us about yourself, current salary, salary requirements, etc. Next, met with hiring manager who explained position to the extent she could (the position was poorly defined, and any questions I asked were answered with a polite version of "we can't tell you that") and asked specific questions regarding my background. Both interviewers were polite and professional.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the HR representative for an initial screening, followed by a 30 minute informal meeting with the hiring director. From there, I waited around 3 weeks and then was scheduled to meet briefly with two Vice Presidents above the department. Overall, it was a comfortable interview process but took quite some time.

    I submitted my resume and cover letter through a jobs website and received an invitation to an interview the next day. I interviewed a few days later, and was offered the paid position within 48 hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce.

    Interview

    It is a 2-3 step interview process. I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter very quickly to schedule a telephone interview. After the telephone interview, I received an email to schedule an in person interview with the department head. During the interview we discussed my skills/experience and specifics about the position. The interview concluded and I spoke with the hr manager about the process and "next steps" for the position. I was told I would receive an email at the end of the week on a decision. I haven't received any notice from them regarding the position. I sent a follow up email for some insight and received no response.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Chamber of Commerce (Washington, DC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Very long process and was brought back three different times. They were slow in getting back to me as well, despite saying they needed an urgent hire. I would advise them to be more transparent with applicants. The interview itself was standard; no surprises and no truly difficult questions. The first woman I spoke with did seem quite bored, though I am guessing she was just a screener.
