Associate Director, Student Conduct Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Emory University.

I had a telephone interview, then was invited for an on campus interview that was a full day in length and involved meetings with various constituency groups.
Interview Question – At dinner the day before my interviewing began I was given a case study that was a composite of several difficult situations that office had recently addressed. I was asked to review the case and be prepared to discuss it at my final interview of the day. View Answer

Interview Question – Whether I have clinical trials experience, and whether or not I have the ability to simultaneously do data analysis, management, and coordinate a trial. Answer Question
Research Informatics Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Emory University in January 2011.
Interview Details – Hiring takes forever, even after a verbal offer. Utilizes the "targeted selection" process by DDS (read about it before interviewing and save everyone a lot of time). Panel interviews (around three people) and a solo interview. There will be a drug test and you will need to be up to date on your vaccinations.
Interview Question – Tell me a time when you failed miserably at something and what you did to remedy the failure (or something to that effect). Targeted Selection is a behavioral interview style and if you're already at this stage, you've met the technical aptitude requirements. Now they need to feel out your personality. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I said what I was prepared to accept, they agreed, and everyone walked away happy. There was an expectation made of salary increases and title changes but both were anemic at best.
Admission Advisor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Emory University.
Interview Details – When you are brought on-site, you are interviewed by a group of your potential future colleagues/peers. Usually it is several small groups but sometimes just one big group. You also give a presentation on a topic of your choice and then have a one-on-one with the supervisor
Interview Question – Give an example of a group/organization/community where you have created a lasting impact that no one else could have done in quite the same way. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Non-negotiable due to the pre-set salaries by HR
