    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Metropolitan Planning Council in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was pleasant and cordial - the phone screen and first interview went well. However, after not hearing anything for over a month, I contacted them to see what my application status was. They called, very apologetic, and scheduled a second interview in the form of a written proposal. After completing this rather detailed, thorough proposal, I never heard back from them. Since I've heard nothing, I have to wonder if my "exam" was pro bono strategy for this organization.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Metropolitan Planning Council (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    MPC has a super long hiring process. In fact, I didn't hear back for weeks at a time with each phase of interviews. I would say that everyone seemed very genuine from the first encounter, but I would have liked to speed the process up just a little bit.

    It was a great interview about MPC's work and the role I would play. I asked plenty of questions, and felt I would fit in with the work culture. At the end I was reminded that the position was unpaid.
