I worked at RAND full-time (More than 3 years)
I had some amazing experiences and opportunities working at RAND as an RA. Writing, research, training, project management, etc. It's definitely a place you can use to learn new skills and I also found a couple of wonderful mentors!
It can be hard to find and manage work so that you have the right amount to do each week. Sometimes you get slammed by multiple projects and other times it can be a bit dry. Also, your working conditions are largely determined by the quality of your PI, so pick carefully!
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at RAND (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2015.
This interview process was fairly straight forward and the team interviewing me seemed knowledgable of what the job candidate needed to be. The pre screening was simple enough on the phone. The interviewers were complimentary to my experience via my resume and my graphic design skills.
