    Technology Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Brandeis University in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was first contacted by email to setup a phone screen. Went through this process and a month later was contacted for in-person interview. This went well with individual and panel interviews. Was then contacted for a second in-person a couple weeks later. Went through all that and then waited over 2 weeks. No response from the department either way. This was the worst part; not knowing. Seems disrespectful and callous to put someone through this process and then offer no response at all.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Brandeis University in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hire and interview were pretty easy. It's very much based on who you know, and getting to the interview quicker than anyone else. The standards aren't very high so the important thing is to get to that job before any other students.
