    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Boston University.

    Interview

    Received a call back relatively quickly after submitting my application. Had an initial interview that lasted about 40 minutes, then was called back a week later to schedule a second interview that lasted about 30. Both interviews included direct supervisors and HR personnel; second interview included executive director.

    Interview Questions

    • I thought the questions asked were ineffective interview questions. They were about very specific details - the kinds of things that, on the job, you'd be able to look up online or in another resource, like "What does this acronym stand for?" "Describe your knowledge of these set of regulations" rather than more functional questions designed to gauge my fit for the position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I requested negotiation on the salary but was told it was impossible. They were flexible on my start date, however, which was nice.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in August 2012.

    Two interviews were required and they were in depth and lengthy but enjoyable. When my boss interviewed me for the job we got to know each other and the values we shared, we appreciated each other from the start and that has endured.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, BU HR said they could not change so offer accepted and recession had done enough damage to make the offer still better than current situation.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I remember that it took a long time from the time I applied to when I got an interview. In fact, I had forgotten that I'd applied! The questions were pretty normal, but the job was not very fancy so that's to be expected.

    Interview Questions

    • I was not an experienced interviewer (straight out of college), so every question was hard. Looking back, all the normal questions. Technology, how do you stay organized, how do you handle stress, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation.
