    I worked at Abt Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Training is provided to staff when new technology is rolled out and someone is always there to answer questions, you are never left behind. Company is always thinking of the next best system for each department to use.

    Cons

    My challenge was finding a mentor that goes through the same familiar work to help with challenges with the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to change to new technologies and new processes.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bethesda, MD (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethesda, MD (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Abt Associates in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The position was created for me by a previous manager since she knew my work experiences, however as Project Coordinator in the IT Department I know the hiring process. Human Resources provide the hiring manager with best candidates’ resumes to choose for telephone interviews. Face to face interviews are set up with multiple project managers (4-5) in the Bethesda and Cambridge office via video conferencing. Expect to be there 3-4 hours for these half hour interviews, interviews with some hiring manager are up to one hour. All the managers get together to determine the strongest candidates and a offer is given over the phone. If no good candidates after the interview, the process starts again with Human Resources.
