    I worked at Child Trends full-time


    Good pay, Great work environment, Positive People I'd still be working there had there been the money to continue my position. I loved every second of being at Child Trends.


    Nothing. Child Trends is a wonderful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work :) I miss working there. And I hope to stop back and visit one day soon and catch up with my former employees.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Child Trends.


    There was an online application that was followed up with a 30 minute phone interview. After advancing to the next stage, I was invited for an in person interview that consisted of a 30 minute interview with research analysts and research assistants, an hour interview with research scientist, senior scientists, and area directors, an hour job talk, a 30 minute interview with the director of research operations, and an overview of the benefits with HR. After the in-person interview they interviewed my references, and had me complete a writing assessment.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions seemed difficult or unexpected. Most of the time I felt like I was having a conversation about the work that I do with people who share my interests. Although the interview process in and of itself was intensive, everyone was really friendly and seemed genuinely interested in my work.   Answer Question
