Deputy Chief of Auxilary Operations Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Christopher Newport University in March 2010.
Interview Details – The hiring official contacted me directly by email to set up a time for a telephone interview. Prior to this the HR department sent me a formal letter acknowledging receipt of my application…nice. On the day of the interview, the hiring official called promptly at the agreed time. The interview was conducted by a panel of four that included the hiring official, the official’s supervisor, and two individuals who would be supervised by the vacant position. Questions took place in a round robin format. The toughest questions revolved around how I would enforce a policy that I did not necessarily agree with. There was also time for me to ask questions about the position and work environment. The entire interview took 1 hour.
Two weeks after the interview view I was contacted for an on campus follow up interview however the school did not have the funding to cover my plane ticket since I live on the west coast. Overall my impression is that CNU would have been a very good organization for a solid work environment.
