    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westat (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    It was pretty intense, but easy. First there were a couple of phone interviews, then I went to the Rockville campus and met with multiple people, in multiple rounds of interviews. The interviewer groups ranged from 2 - 6 people, but everyone was nice and there were no curveball questions. It was just a very long interview process that day.

    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.
