    Data Manager Interview

    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.

    Field Interviewer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rockville, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Westat (Rockville, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Hired over the phone for low level field interviewer job. I made a couple of appointments with their staff via internet and we talked. Oddly enough, they weren't going to hire me because I was overqualified but then they changed their minds. The people who interviewed me were sort of nice which was not at all my experience with the company itself.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to explain why I wanted the job and other not too interesting questions. Perhaps the people who interviewed me could have given me a heads-up about what to expect.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Westat (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    Traveled 7 hours at my own expense for the interview. A half hour before the interview, I received a call saying the time had been pushed back an hour. When I arrived, I had to wait an additional half hour before the interview began. The interview took 3 hours. I spoke with 5 different people, all of whom asked the same questions, mostly general questions about my resume. Following the interview, I heard nothing for 3 weeks before receiving a generic email telling me the position had been filled. I sent an email to the hiring manager requesting feedback on how I may have been a better candidate. After a week, the hiring manager responded with "We don't have any feedback." Disorganized, poorly managed interview process, low pay range, and stone-walling. Waste of time.
