    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Emory University.

    Interview

    I applied online. The process took about a month and a half. Overall the staff was friendly but it was not as organized as I would have liked. For example, I was applying to two separate positions and when the recruiter for one of the positions called she scheduled a time for a phone interview. The other simply began asking me questions without giving me time to prepare and with no previous warning, so I was on speaker in a conference room with four separate employees and no preparation. Perhaps this was a simple screening, but I would have liked to been better informed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Emory University.

    Interview

    Most of hiring process through online--can be hard to navigate, but not impossible. I do not think my process was normal. The semester was about to begin and they needed to fill the position. I have found the administration here easy to work with and highly ethical. Emory is a good place to work.

    Good. Ethical.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Remember this was 12+ years ago so I'm sure some practices have changed. I met with the CFO for a 1:1 interview, she felt I had too much experience for the front office. She interviewed me for a upcoming position. I meet with 2 other supervisors that day which went well and received a call back by 4pm that day for a follow up interview. I came in 24 hrs later and was offered the job by the HR Director. He was very funny and made me feel relaxed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Emory University in April 2014.

    Interview

    preliminary phone interview, then all day interview. Gave me things to prepare and present for the all day interview. You will meet with a lot of different people. Make sure to send thank you notes or emails and to remember specific things from your conversations. They look for people who already understand and Emory university as a whole so a lot of research on the universities fundraising practices was necessary.

    Interview

    I was initially hired as the first assistant director for the Office of Student Conduct, then promoted to associate director over four years later.

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 Questions

    • 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.   1 Answer

    I was able to negotiate a higher salary and temporary on-campus housing accommodations while I identified an apartment to lease.
