    Editorial Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Beware - backwards process. Hiring manager requested an interview with me; however, a background check and reference check had to be cleared first. I went in to fill out paperwork and speak with a general screening manager within the institution. After positive references and a cleared background check were complete, I never heard from them again. The screening manager said that the position was eventually filled. I never received an opportunity to meet with the hiring manager after all my personal information and references were tapped and stored in their database/filing system. The process was discouraging and a waste of time for not only myself, but my professional colleagues who dropped everything to deliver positive reviews with quick turnaround on my part. More over, it has been difficult to explain the negligence to my colleagues as they felt the position was a great fit.

    Digital Communications Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview came from a girl who sounded like she was barely 17 years old; hardly old enough to conduct a serious job interview for an intermediate to middle management level position. This child repeatedly asked me the most inane questions - questions that are clearly there on the resume in front of her, that is IF she had bothered to even read it. Then made excuses for her lack of knowledge such as 'sorry, your resume was just now put in front of me.' Oh really? Because it's Monday now and you called me on Friday at 4:45pm (who calls to conduct new business at nearly 5pm on a Friday???) to schedule this phone interview. Then to top it off, this child began touting all the wonderful things about the position - things like a "really cool" cafeteria where you can get "free peanut butter and jelly sandwiches". No mention about the health benefits, the 401K, or any of the kind of important perks we actually NEED. I got so disgusted I interrupted the child in the middle of her gushing about pb&j sandwiches and told her she was wasting my time and hung up.

    Interview

    I received a call if I could come in for an interview because I was out of town I suggest a Skype, FaceTime, or other video chat method. They worked with me, but because their wifi connection was not great it did end up being a phone interview. There were three people that was in on the call, all rotated questioning. Most of the question did come from the subject of "Name a time when..." or "What would you did if ____ was to occur?"

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Several months after I submitted the application, I received a call from HR of the Department of Land and Natural Resources. The interview was schedule for a few days later. Two days before I looked additional information on state fisheries regulations. The night before I reviewed the info. I also rehearsed potential questions they might have and how I would answer them such as "how do you think your previous experience will help you here?" The interview consisted three people in the panel and the HR rep. It lasted about an hour. The overall experience was neutral because one of the panel members kept saying that I am overqualified because I have a Ph.D. And a doctoral degree was not a job requirement.
