- 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.Interview Questions
