Study Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yeshiva University in April 2010.
Interview Details – I was working in a similar setting in another state, so my interview was pretty much straight forward. Was asked about my skills, years of experience, expected salary, moving time. Was explained in detail about the work environment, contract and other expectations.

Administrative Assistant Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Yeshiva University in July 2008.
Interview Details – First contacted by HR & scheduled a "phone interview" that probably lasted 10 minutes, then we scheduled a 1:1 with another person in HR and that interview was very bizarre. Lastly, I interviewed with the department I had applied for & met their Executive Assistant & the Finance person.
Interview Question – Would you have a problem understanding a different culture? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Nothing really. They told me what it paid and that's all they could offer, there was no room for negotiation but it was a step up in salary from where I was currently working.
