    Loan Collector Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Boston College.

    Interview Details

    I received a scheduling call and conducted an initial interview with the hiring manager and their department head. They asked specific questions about my resume and the position and were professional throughout. I was then invited back for a followup interview with Human Resources and the Division head, who were likewise professional and on key. A week later, I received a kind rejection letter signed by those who had interviewed me.

    I was very impressed by Boston College and feel that I was treated fairly throughout the interview process; however, my rejection came almost 10 weeks after I sent my application. During that time, I turned down a job offer with another employer. I wish that BC would come to a decision in a shorter window of time.

    Interview Questions
    • Almost all questions were specific to myself and the position. I don't think BC uses boilerplate interview questions.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Boston College.

    Interview Details

    You apply for the job online and submit your cover letter and resume online as well through the application system. You then wait to hear from the employer if you have been selected for a phone interview. They arrange a phone interview, which is typically under 30 minutes to get to know you. If selected, you move onto a formal in-person interview that often includes HR. After this step, you are either offered the job by HR or not .

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Boston College.

    Interview Details

    The most difficult part of the process for Boston College is the very prolonged hiring process that most offices use. The job typically is posted for 30 days and without a referral or being an internal candidate, it is extremly difficult to get hired.

    Interview Questions
    • BC is a Jesuit institution and many times candidates are not prepared if they are asked about the Jesuit values or something like "what does it meant to be part of a Jesuit institution?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    BC claims that when they make you an offer it is their best offer. In some cases that has been true, but in other cases people have negotiated well beyond the posted range . So depending on your level of experience you should always try to negotiate for the best salary you can get but don't expect them to budge.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brighton, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Boston College in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    After pre-screening by an agency, interviewed with the manager and potential co-workers. Everyone was very pleasant, The most difficult part of the interview was that the job description was not written very clearly, so I was not sure who would be making the firewall changes. During the process of the interview, it became clear that this was primarily a documentation project, and that the skills required were those of a technical analyst, project manager, and documentation specialist.
