    Senior Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Arizona State University in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview began with one on one phone conversation. Then a group of 3 or 4 telephone interview. Then there was an in-person interview with the same group of 3 or 4. This included a written "exercise" to determine writing ability, understanding the instructions, understanding the process, etc. Perception of the people I interviewed with was that they were knowledgeable, competent and concerned about hiring a good mix. In this office, the culture is serious (a little too much so); strong work ethic; work in silos, not much interaction between staff groups. Not much communication up or down.

    Interview Questions
    • The written exercise consisted of doing the activity that I would be training others to do; the interpretation of the assignment; and the quality of work - writing, proofreading, ability to communicate, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Get what ever salary you can coming in - staff positions have not had raises in quite some time.

    Assistant Professor - CLAS Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Arizona State University in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Typical application for academic positions - writing sample / article, CV, cover letter, teaching statement. INterivew was one research presentation to the department faculty. Meetings with Dean, Research center head, Chair / Assistant Chair, and panel interview with hiring committee. There were "office hours" to meet with faculty as they dropped in. Meeting rooms and faculty offices were pretty sad really. Furniture was nice in the offices but spaces small, technology dated and building frankly tired. Faculty were energetic, hardworking and eager graduate students were a breath of fresh air with lots of activities going on.

    Interview Questions
    • What have you heard negatively about our unit / university?   View Answer
    • what would it take to get you here?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Simple. Got budget from the library for my unit and benchmarked myself. The Chair asked "what would it take to get me here?" and I presented the parameters.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Arizona State University in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    If they choose your application from their pool of applicants, they will call you and set up an appointment. It really depends on what department you applied to but most offices at ASU have amazing people. The interview was a panel interview with the Director and Assistant Director. I would say be prepared to know about whichever department you interview for and to be positive. Questions included how would you deal with multiple projects given at one time, technical competencies and just your average questions.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Arizona State University in August 2011.

    Typical panel interview, started about 15 min late, most of the panel seemed friendly. QA started normal, almost every panel member would ask questions then the others would scribble notes. Then the questions went to the nebulous and undefined.

    Intern for the Outreach Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Arizona State University in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application. About 5 days later scheduled an in person interview. The in person interview was with one person, the director of the program. She asked behavior based questions based on the position.

    The interviewer look like she was about 35 years old and was easy to talk to. This felt like a long interview! The questions weren't too difficult - just felt like a long interview. Since it was so long, I think I got a little to comfortable in my speech (since she was easy to talk to), however, I would advise to continue to remain professional in speech even if you get tired since it is an interview. (Maybe I just got tired because during the interview I learned more about the position that I wasn't too excited about).

    Interview Questions
    • Your working with K-12 groups. You schedule a group of middle school students to come tour the campus and listen to a speaker. The speaker is kind of boring and you notice the kids getting bored, not listening and talking; what do you do about the speaker?   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you gave a presentation to a group and it turned out great.   Answer Question
