    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Christie's.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a job and HR called me in for an interview pretty quickly. The interview went very well but it is hard to get a response to the status of your interview after waiting for over a month. It is just nice to get a yes or no for closure.

    Administrator Interview

    Interview Details

    Very basic interview. On the same day, I had interviews with both HR and the specialist department. The interviewers seemed disinterested in my course of study and keener on my experiences, which for a specialist department seem a bit bizarre. From start to finish the process took a month.

    Gallery Operations Interview

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was made by an assistant in the HR office, with an invitation to come in for an interview. I came from out-of-state for what turned out to be a 20-minute window that the recruiter scheduled. Upon realizing I had come from afar (though all my materials and communication were clear about my location, desire to relocate), the recruiter asked me to come back and meet again later in the afternoon. Not the most organized process.

    It took 3 weeks to get the interview and the process is under very nice environment. And the interviewer just walked through my resume and tell me something about the tasks of the position.

    Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Christie's in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    There were 200 applicants, 30 interviews conducted. It was only the first round of interviews with the HR Recruiter, then you met with two people inside of the department being applied to. Since the department was Post-War Contemporary there was a lot of competition and even though it is listed as an administrator role, they were really looking for someone much more experienced and preferably in-house.

    Interview Questions
    • Most important to them seems to be experience with (high-level) client relationships and they want specific examples.   Answer Question

    Spring Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Christie's in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by Asian Art department administrator, and interviewed by the same person. The interview was very basic, just some basic behavioral questions and asked you to introduce yourself in a sentence or two. The very department I was interviewed at was very small, had only three employees not including the one intern they were looking to hire. So I would say the working environment is pretty restricted, but in any ways, it's just a guess.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked me to comment on the most recent Asian Art Week sales. Did not prepare at all, so didn't do it well.   Answer Question
