    Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Wikistrat (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied online, received an answer a few days later - I was interviewed over Skype a few days after that. About 12 days from Application to Interview..

    I never expect interviewers to be friendly and fun, but this Wiksitrat interviewer came in so aggressive that I knew since the first second I wouldn't want to be within this organization. Specially for No Salary. I was interested in cooperating at first, but after what I heard from within, and this particular man, I just waited for the interview to finish, hang up, delete him from Skype, and keep going.

    Interviewer said Wikistrat would reply after a week with their result - either good or bad. I never heard back.

    This company is a scam. It´s only interesting for people doing PhD´s who are ready to be put to work for nothing in exchange for "reputation". I highly disrecommend it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wikistrat (Washington, DC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Part of the interview was explaining what Wikistrat is and how analysts are paid and rewarded and part of it was asking me questions about geopolitics. The interview took place over the phone, and the person I interviewed with was a fairly high level staff member based in Israel. Talking about geopolitics to a foreign national was slightly unnerving I have to admit. I have had secret clearance much of my career, so it felt a little strange to be having such a discussion. That said, much of the discussion taking place on Wikistrat has an international security perspective, and all the intelligence is open source. Posting anything classified is strictly prohibited and can get you removed. The interview is the first step in having regular open and honest discussions about geopolitics with creative thinkers from many nationalities. Normally you would never do that.
