    Very nice interviewers who were easy to talk to, pretty standard questions, seemed really excited about their work and were excited to speak with me. Very clear and straightforward with the interviewing process; I always knew where I stood and what was next.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Durham, NC (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I only went through 2 steps in the processes. The first step was a phone call, which asked general questions and gauged interest in the position. And the second step they invited me to the Durham office. I talked to two people, one in person and another one through conference call. They were really friendly and the whole interview was relatively casual.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Atlanta, GA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I had a brief interview with the hiring recruiter which then put me in contact with the office I was applying for. After four interviews, over a two month time span, the fail to inform me if I did not or did get the job. Very misleading as though the hiring recruiter and those that were interviewing me told me they would let me know in a week.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Abt Associates (Cambridge, MA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I went through a series of interviews, first by the HR screener, then the people I'd be working with in the department, and its head. The whole thing lasted a few weeks, I was unfamiliar with them prior to applying; however, I asked around at the start of the process and really liked what I heard. 4 separate interviews, two on location on the same day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Abt Associates in March 2018.

    Interview

    The whole process took many months. I got contacted for a phone interview a few weeks after applying, and then invited for an in-person the next week which was scheduled for a few weeks after. Even though the interview went very well, I never heard back from them afterwards. I followed up multiple times with HR. Once, she told me that I would hear the following week, and then I never heard back. I finally was connected to someone else at Abt who reached out to the recruiter on my behalf. She finally emailed me to tell me that they had decided to move forward with another candidate and she thought she had gotten back to me. Very unprofessional.
