    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process for one of the summer internships at WSSC was fairly painless. After sending in your online application (which is very short and simple), HR contacts you about scheduling an interview. If you are selected for an interview, you tell them what time you are available. All interviews for all of their internships are scheduled on a single day, but you can probably discuss it and reschedule if you can't make it on that day. When you arrive, you're directed to the interview room, and you sign in with HR. Then you wait with the other interviewees, until HR calls you to your interview. You get interviewed in the same large room that all other interviewees get interviewed in, so it can be a bit loud and distracting. That said, the questions they ask you are very typical (Tell me about yourself. Why do you want to join WSSC? What will you bring to the company?). The interviewers are very friendly and uncritical; they're expecting unpracticed students. After your interview, WSSC contacts you within about a month about the decision.

    I thought the whole process was fairly simple and very professional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (Laurel, MD) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for a regular FT job and an internship. I was contacted for an interview for the internship position. I sat with the HR manager who interviewed me and asked me very basic questions. After I left, I was contacted about an hour later and offered the job. I was asked to come back that day to sign my offer letters. I didn't receive the salary I expected but it was a summer internship so it was only for a moment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (Laurel, MD) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview Process I was a part of had the supervisor of my internship plus the people I would be working with on a daily basis. They asked me a list of questions that were very open ended and conceptual. I found the interview to be very low pressure and very open. It was not an interview where they saw how you reacted under pressure, more just they wanted to know what kind of worker you were and if you had the skills they desired.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

    Interview

    The interview process was very relaxed and the interviewers were nice. They asked about 7 basic questions and then asked if I had any questions. Be prepared to answer questions about your background, and it might be a good idea to research the company thoroughly (current projects) before you sit down. It took awhile for them to get back to me, but I was glad they did eventually.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

    Interview

    I was away at school, so we did a phone interview. It was a panel with no more than 4 people on the other end. After introducing themselves, they gave a little note from HR that they have x number of questions that they'll ask, and that they can't elaborate on them but that they can repeat them.

    Three interviews following 4 month initial application submission.

    Several cancellations on part of employer due to last minute emergencies - not unusual for "government-sector" platform environment.

    Company website is best-face marketing - as it should be - but not reflective of operations. Interview stakeholders, Read news articles, press and other reviews for balanced indicators.
