    Student Affairs Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Catholic University.

    Interview Details

    2 part interview process-- First was a phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. I was then called for an on-campus interview which lasted two hours. The first part of the interview was about 45 minutes with the director followed by a panel interview.
    The interview questions were well thought questions. Not a canned interview approach. Each person had thoroughly read my resume and cover letter and posed relevant questions.
     Following the interview all of my references were checked and then I was offered the job about 7-10 days later.
    HR called with the job offer and salary offer (not the director/manager) which was unusual. HR was totally unwilling to negotiate on salary or benefit package at all. Experience with HR was negative.
    The entire process took about 2+ months.

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was way lower than comparable positions at comparable institutions. It was also too low for the cost of living in the DC area. Further, HR was unwilling to negotiate in the slightest-- something that I've never encountered before in any previous job. If the salary had been adequate, then I probably would not have needed to negotiate.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Catholic University in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview after submitting a short statement of intent. The interview was short and to the point, and I was offered a position the next day. The interview focused on the technical requirements of the position, the ability to create and maintain my own hours, and the importance of the job for the Church at large, as well as in the community.
