    I have been working at AARP part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for a firm in DC; Amenities such as nice gym and shower, own laptop, stand-up table, transportation stipend.
    Respectful and very friendly co-workers
    Access to internal directory so it's quite easy to reach out to people you want to chat with and most of the time they are willing to meet you for lunch. My supervisor is chill and supportive of my work. Also, he always acts as a resource that I can reach out to any time. My team also always gets me involved in the department's meetings or helpful activities. Grateful for this opportunity.
    Responsive recruiters
    Mission

    Cons

    People working from home frequently so it's hard to really get to know people in your department, but I'm working part-time so I cannot complain that much.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Two round of interviews, both are focused on the behavior questions.
    The first round of the phone screen is normal.
    For the second round, there were three seniors interviewing me at the same time, about 45 mins.

    Interview Questions

    • Apart from the common behavior questions, such as tell me about yourself, why us, why this position?
      Be sure to prepare well for your projects on your resume. Make sure that you are able to explain each step of the project thoroughly, including all your thoughts and reasons behind the decision process. They really want to know how you approach the result rather than just listing what you did technically.
      Other questions:
      - time management
      - have you ever face any conflict with a client? How you solve it?

      Last but not least, the interviewers are all nice people, be relax, be friendly and be confident.   Answer Question
