    Administrative Aide II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NYU (New York University) in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very rude woman whose current student workers did not follow up. I emded up calling at 9 am to follow up a confirmation for a 2pm call. The Director answered and basically was very nice but when tne rep called she seemed very embarrassed that the Director had delivered the message. Eitjer way she called and spoke plainly and quickly , as though mocking my voice with undertones of protocol almost like a robot. I question if she just called for affirmative action quotas . Very rude.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and didn't hear back from HR until almost a year later. I received an email stating that they were setting up interviews and was given days and times that I could come in. I replied back and had an interview a week later.

    The day of the interview I came in and had to call the person interviewing me so that someone could come get me by the elevators (who never showed up) but some random person walking past the doors let me in. Once I arrived at the location I was greeted by the receptionist at the desk. She let my interviewer know that i was here and she came out within 5 minutes. She came with a few forms for me to fill out and offered me something to drink. After I filled out my forms I gave them back to the receptionist and went into the office about 2 minutes later. Overall the interview took about 30-45 minutes. It was a very relaxing interview.

    After the interview it took about a month before I received a response about the job. I knew it was going to be long before I received a response because I was notified in the beginning of the interview that this would be a long process.

    Very unprofessional. I took the time out to do a phone screening than on site interview and didn't even recieve a response. I could have been notified of the position being filled. I do not want to work for a department who is so unprofessional anyway.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online after receiving an employment announcement from career advisor. Invited to interview approximately 3 days later the following week with senior research leader. Simple case-style questions to assess analytical thinking and previous employment experience. Office seemed a bit disorganized once I probed a bit about the work style (i.e. adhoc).

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent an email with regards to this open position. I received a prompt response, and an interview was then set up. The staff was quite friendly, and considering this was my first interview, it went pretty well. Not too many difficult questions, just some general questions and clarifications based on what was on my resume. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job since they where looking for a different skill set than what I had to offer.

    I applied online – interviewed at NYU (New York University) in August 2013.

    They conducted a phone interview first. Make sure you have your resume next to you. They grill you from top to bottom so make sure you have explanations.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and roughly a month later I was contacted via email to schedule a phone interview. When the day of the phone interview came, I sat by my phone and waited for the recruiter to call. She never called. After that I reached out to the recruiter by both email and telephone to see what happened, and ended up rescheduling the interview.

    Now, one would think a recruiter who missed the first interview would not miss the rescheduled interview, right? Wrong. This recruiter totally did not call me on the scheduled day, but instead called me two days later. Since I really needed the job I ended up doing the phone interview at the unscheduled time (which I should add was difficult because it was during a time I really couldn’t talk on the phone for an interview). The phone interview questions were pretty basic. They were things like: “Why do you want to work for NYU?”; “Tell me about your background.”; “What are your salary requirements?”; etc. After the phone interview, I was asked to come in and do an in person interview. I accepted and headed to NYU a week later for the interview.

    Overall, I would say the interview went ok. A junior/mid level analyst interviewed me for the financial analyst position I applied to. It was a one-on-one interview that lasted roughly 20 minutes. I guess my biggest complaint about the interview was that the guy interviewing me didn’t seem to have a lot of experience conducting interviews. He seemed nervous while talking to me and also seemed like he didn’t know what types of questions to ask me. In fact, now that I think about it, a lot of the questions he asked seemed really random and totally unconnected to the position I was applying for. I’ve been on a lot of other financial analyst interviews recently, and usually I am asked questions like “How do you handle budget inconsistencies?” or “What types of financial controls have you worked with in the past?” This guy was asking things like “What class would you take if you could take any class?” and “Do you like to travel?” In sum, very few of the questions I was asked were actually questions that would measure and determine my ability to perform the tasks of this position.

    Once I left the interview, I received a computer generated rejection email several weeks later letting me know I did not get the job. There was no reason given as to why I did not get the job in the email.

    Lastly, I want to mention one useful thing for others who may interview with NYU. It seemed to me that NYU really emphasizes that you must have previous experience using their proprietary software. I think this is completely unrealistic. In my interview, I mentioned that while I didn’t have experience using their exact software, I have had experience and training using very similar software. The interviewer seemed concerned that I didn’t have this exact experience. Also, I was asked if I could use Excel during this interview. This is such a dumb question, but one you should be prepared for. I guess the point I’m trying to make here is that they are really, really picky about finding an exact match for the technical skills they’re looking for and they place significant value on having exact experience that matches the job duties.

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the HR rep who asked basic questions. She advised that the process would take quite some time. I heard from the department director 2 weeks after to schedule an onsite interview.

    The onsite interview start with the Director giving a presentation. Then she went through a booklet of behavioral questions categorized by topic (i.e. technical skills, customer focus, etc...).
    This interview lasted approximately 1.5 hours.

    I was invited back 1 month later for an interview with the hiring manager (who was recently hired). The interview seemed rush, and I had the impression from the start he had already selected his candidate.

    Approximately 2 weeks later I received and email from the hiring manager letting me know I was not selected for the job. He offered to provide any references if I needed for future opportunities.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Application was sent in January, heard nothing for 2 months, then suddenly a request for a phone screening interview from HR. I believe this person is a contractor, not a direct employee of NYU. Was told I would hear from Hiring Manager if he was interested, but no time line was available. Never heard anything back, almost 1 month later
