    I worked at Washington Speakers Bureau full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    WSB gives employees the opportunity to work with top thought leaders on their speaking engagements. It's a very educational place to work as you end up hearing a lot of speeches, reading speaker books, and meeting with speakers when they come in for staff meet and greets. The culture is service-focused, and employees take pride in solving problems together. We would oftentimes overcome seemingly impossible circumstances to make sure speakers show up for events.

    Cons

    Because speakers are VVIPs in many cases, tensions run high when there is an issue.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Washington Speakers Bureau.

    Interview

    The overall interview process involved a phone screen, panel interview and 1-on-1 interview. Parts of the process were bizarre (not sure if any of the interviews started on time, some questions / statements were conflicting or misleading, and there were long gaps between each interview). In general, everyone was very pleasant and seemed like nice people to work with.
