    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National League of Cities (Washington, DC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and had a phone interview about a week later. Then was called in about a week after that for an interview in-person. Was less "tell me about yourself" and more "what are your feelings on this policy..." I left feeling very good about it, sent a follow-up e-mail, but never heard from them after that. Apart from an automated rejection e-mail 2 months later. Thanks.
