    Pros

    These are people people, which is reflected in the organization. Nice place to work. Members (clients) appreciate what employees do and often complement the staff. The staff works hard and produces impressive results, so the praise is well-deserved. But, in the association world, it's not so common that members make the connection that it's the staff producing the results.

    Cons

    It would be nice to be more centrally located.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at American Staffing Association.

    Interview

    Most staff is obtained through staffing agencies. Temps are used often. They don't mind dragging along the interview process and having people come in many times.

    Several rounds of interviews and meetings, whether you come from an agency or directly. Once you get to the interviews directly with ASA, you'll first have a phone interview, then an in-person interview with direct supervisor and probably their supervisor.

    If you do well, you move on: everyone is given a basic competency test in writing: read the paragraph (maybe two or three paragraphs) and edit for grammar, spelling, etc. There may be a typing or computer competency test also.

    If you pass that you are probably sure you've got the job at that point. But you're wrong.

    The CEO has final say in everything so there's an obligatory one-on-one with him before any job offer is made. He asks some wacky questions, but I can't remember any now. I was asked by several people what he came up with for me and they shared the unusual stuff they'd been asked. I guess he likes to catch people off guard, or it's an effort to see the "real" you so he can decide whether you'd fit in. Because he doesn't trust the people you'd be working directly with to make their own decisions, apparently.

    The whole process isn't too bad--as long as you're hired after they make you come in so many times and drag it along so much.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't recall, but if you get to interview with the CEO, know to expect the unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    they didn't budge and the salary was low. low level position, though, but still low for the position especially in the DC area.
