    Internship Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (Crystal City, VA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to come in for an interview about two weeks later. Unfortunately, the two staff members interviewing me did not know how to conduct an interview very well. They gave me a hard time about certain things and asked confusing questions. For example, one of the interviewers kept giving me a hard time about where I was living at the time - which is valid to ask about - but it came to a point where I thought it was unprofessional to keep asking me after I had given a perfectly good answer and explanation for it. Overall, it was a frustrating experience for me and I had the impression the interviewers weren't very prepared. I was thankful not to receive an offer.
    Another note: Try to use public transportation or have someone drop you off. The parking garage there in Crystal City is expensive; I paid over $20 for an interview that took less than an hour.

    Interview was very basic, you meet once and than they follow up with you saying if you have the internship or not. The process in total was about 2 weeks long. It was a good experience, they made it very interactive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that lasted about an hour, and while there were some questions about me and my skills, the majority of questions were about the fundraising efforts of my current employer. It felt very unprofessional that they would be asking me trade secrets of another organization in this interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    My first round interview was an hour long in person interview with two people from the team, including one who would be the candidate's direct manager. They asked standard interview questions reading off a piece of paper (i.e. what are your strengths/weaknesses?). It wasn't so much of a conversational interview, it more of reading off the list of questions and having your answer. The interviewers almost played the roles of "good cop/ bad cop", with one interviewer appearing to not be super engaged, would look out the window, lost track of which question we were on and the other one asking the majority of the questions.

    I didn't move on past the first round, but was told that the next steps included a skills assessment, background check, and a 30 minute in person interview with other team members, including the director.

    Interview Questions

    • They did ask quite a few questions about interpersonal work conflicts: have you ever had a conflict with your manager, have you ever had a conflict with a coworker, have you ever had a coworker not do their share of the work, have you ever not reached a goal you made? I was expecting a couple of these, but I wasn't expecting that about half the interview questions were going to be negative in nature.   Answer Question
