    Interview

    They emailed me after I applied asking for a phone interview. Set one up for the next day, had a phone call of about 30 minutes, said they liked me and sent me the forms for hiring the next day. Said it was like a proper call center gig. Ya, it worked out well, all went pretty easy.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Westat.

    Interview

    Horrible experience. To start off this is a company that I have never heard of.

    One day, I got reached out from a recruiter saying I'd be an excellent fit. Thinking of recruiter's ranking of "excellent fit", I applied, mentioning the recruiter name. In 24 hours I received an email saying I was not selected.

    Westat HR - best at wasting people's time.

    I will make sure to help market your company to all my friends and family to never consider any opportunities. =]

    Data Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Westat (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    Received a phone call, a phone interview, than two in person interviews. The recruiter had not read my resume and kept me waiting half an hour pay or scheduled appointment, the hiring manager was late to the interview, another one was plain rude and behaved as if didn't know why we were there... After the interview, i emailed the recruiter numerous times, and the one hiring manger who gave me a card. I was ignored for three weeks. I am very surprised that their data management can stay afloat since that requires a lot of attention to detail and follow up... I ain't working in such a place than you very much.
