    Caring community of like-minded, mission-oriented professionals


    Company's mission has become more diffuse and revenue-driven over the years. Navigating the ponderous bureaucracy is becoming ever more difficult, making us less nimble.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on great performance towards a well-defined mission, and the bottom line will take care of itself.

    Technical Officer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at FHI 360 (Washington, DC) in June 2017.


    The initial screening call was very pleasant. There were several weeks between the HR screen and the actual interview. I interviewed with a panel of 3 people at the DC office. From the very beginning it was awkward and seemed like the program manager lacked interviewing skills. The panel sat scattered throughout the room and when I asked where to sit, the PM did not direct me. I could tell within the first several minutes that the team either already had someone chosen and was there just to check off the box of interviewing another person or really had decided they were not interested in me before I had arrived. The interview was dry, emotion-less, and ended abruptly. I had considered this job a "dream job" but after the interview, I knew I couldn't see myself on that team and that the feeling was reciprocated. Super awkward, but I guess those experiences are bound to happen! C'est la vie.
