    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia Tech in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted a little more than a month after applying online. The initial telephone interview was 30 min. There were 3 people on the panel. Was contacted a week later for a face to face interview, but declined because the salary was lower than I expected. Otherwise, the interviewers were very friendly and informative. Would recommend to apply.

    Technical Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I first received a 40 minute conversation on the job description. It was a lot of blabbering, when we got towards the end I asked if I could get a more descriptive description, instead she then invited me in for an interview. Boy did it go bad. Not only was the job description irrelevant, the questions were difficult and ego-driven. For a technical support position at a university this was unnecessary. I felt incompetent like my 6 years of experience didn't matter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It's a lengthy process. I first had a phone interview, then an in person interview with the hiring manager, then a third interview with other members of the team. Everyone was really nice and it was a laid back atmosphere.

    ERP Applications Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Someone contacted me a good month or so after I had applied. Since I was out of state they agreed to do a Skype interview which was great, however they experienced some "technical difficulties" during the interview itself and couldn't get their cameras working. Interviewing with people you can't see is more daunting than it sounds because you can't gauge their reactions, so I honestly had no idea how it went (I guess not well since I didn't get the job). Plus it was a panel interview on top of that (5 or 6 interviewers). They didn't really ask any technical questions but instead opted for more behavioral scenarios. I was interviewing for a technical position so I'm not sure how you can determine someone's technical skills if you don't ask technical questions.

    Communications Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was brought in on 3 different occasions. The first interview was a one on one with the hiring manager. The second interview was a panel interview with 4 people. The third interview was with the hiring manager, the Assistant VP and the VP. I felt very confident in my ability to do the job, however the process was a little strange. I believe there may have been an internal candidate for this role. It seemed each time I was interviewed the questions were very basic interview questions. The third interview was interesting. It felt as if there was no interest and some of the managers did not seem be prepared to speak with me. I felt as if there was some dissension among the ranks as to what the role should be and as the day progressed I received two job descriptions. After making it through to the third round, I received a blanket three line email that I was not hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I applied online in January 2014 and the process took 6 weeks. I had an initial interview in January with the hiring manager. I was called back in February for a 2nd interview with the hiring manager, her boss and the dean. At the end of the interview, I asked when a hiring decision would be made. All of the managers responded that the position was on hold due to funding. I was upset since they knew this prior to bringing me in for a 2nd interview that lasted an hour. It was a big waste of my time!

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was lengthy and the follow-up from the hiring manager was not great. After a couple of initial phone conversations, I was invited to the center for a panel interview, followed by a 1:1 interview that same day. After this panel interview, about 2-3 weeks later, I was invited to another panel interview, with 6 entirely different members from the first panel. There was a brief 1:1 recap after this 2nd panel interview. After each phase of the interview process, I would go into a black hole with regards to not hearing from the hiring manager, who each of the 1:1 and phone interviews were with. Although I sent a thank you note after each phase, and to each of the employees represented during the panels, I rarely heard back from anyone. I even had to email and place several phone calls to the hiring manager, as I was considering other job opportunities in the marketing field, to see if the position was still going to be filled. I was finally told that it was between myself and one additional candidate, and that another round with the hiring managers boss would be needed. After waiting several more weeks, I called the hiring manager, only to find out that the position was being altered and the hiring process would need to start over again, including submitting a resume and starting over from the beginning. How can you go from being one of the top two candidates, to now having to being again? What a waste of time and poor communication throughout. Fortunately I found a Marketing Coordinator position with a great company and I am completely happy. I have been employed here since January, 2014, and I've never looked back.

    Senior Vice President of Planning Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Interviews were mainly over the phone and also used online tools for candidate diagnostics until the final handful were still standing. A detailed write-up of prior accomplishments and comprehensive detailed resume along with several letters of recommendation were required also. The process called for excellent communication skills. Out of well over 100 feasible applicants, I made it to the final five.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I had experience as CFO or Controller of a major institution of higher learning. That struck me as an odd question since my resume had been closely scrutinized and passed around for months by then and I had asked the recruiter more than once whether my background was acceptable.   1 Answer
