    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Abt Associates in December 2017.

    Interview

    There was one twenty minute interview over the phone, then an hour long interview in person. The phone interview is very simple. They ask you about you and your experiences. Off of those answers they’ll ask a couple of general questions. Then you’re able to ask any questions you want. They’ll also be transparent about salary ranges in the first interview. The second interview depends on who the position is for, but they’ll take you in to talk to a team for an hour. They’ll specifically ask you what your goals are and how you want to grow through the company.

    Interview Questions

    • What experiences make you qualified for this position. If it’s the innperson interview they’ll just tease out your resume.   Answer Question
