Career Professional/Specialist Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at San Jose State.
Interview Details – Had to go through four interviews. A phone screen, then an interview with three reps, then w/management, and then with the entire staff of the department. I also had to create a presentation and present to the management and staff and then partake in an exercise that consisted of pulling random scenarios out of a box and answering how I would address each scenario to remedy the issues that they contained. I had to set aside about 3-4 hours for the final day of interviewing.
Interview Question – Tell us a time that you worked with a client or employer and the situation did not go as planned; what did you do? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I declined th eoffer twice because the salaray was too low. There wasn't much room for negotiation, however there was some wiggle room. I was able to get them to increase their initial offer and to explore flexible scheduling.
