Student Assistant Interview

Student Assistant
Daytona Beach, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in September 2012.

Interview Details – I had one very casual interview since I had already worked for the department. I was told what to expect from the job, I was given a gist of the project concept. I was asked for my schedule and we worked on a time table that fit both my supervisor and myself. I was told what they expected from me and if I thought I could accept it. It went really well.

Interview Question – Regarding my knowledge and expertise with a particular software tool used for simulations   Answer Question

Flight Instructor Interview

Flight Instructor
Daytona Beach, FL

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in August 2012.

Interview Details – Being a graduate there is too much bias from me. It was pretty easy considering what I had to do. The basic interview was 1:1 and since they are hardcore on their SOPs the questions were easy to answer. The sim and flight was just as I expected, but, like i said, know those SOPs.

Interview Question – Pretty Basic, know G1000 systems   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Too strict on everything, did not like the location

Assistant Professor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Daytona Beach, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in April 2009.

Interview Details – Was a current adjunct and applied for full time on campus. They knew me and I knew them. I had recently been informally offered a similar position there but the position was eliminated due to the economy. In both one on one, and panel interviews, the interviewers did not seem to be serious. When they were, they were very adversarial.

Interview Question – Why do you want to leave your present position?   Answer Question

Strategic Financial Analyst Interview

Strategic Financial Analyst
Daytona Beach, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in April 2008.

Interview Details – Embry-Riddle is a great place to work. The people that land jobs there tend to stay for very long tenures. Many of my colleagues have been there for more than 10 years and have no plans of leaving. Typically the hiring process involves people you will work with repeatedly. Unless it is an upper-level position, you may not experience the panel interview format. More likely is the format that reqiuires multiple interviews with the people that will interact with you the most.

Interview Question – Describe the attribute you possess that will make you successful in this position and additional positions within this organization.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much negotiation was available. The position already had limitations on salary range and since the position was created specifically to satisfy a project, the compensation was set.

Teaching Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Interview Details – One interview face to face with the professor. The interview was streight forward and only required me to outline a simple topic of physics of my choice. The professor simply wanted to see communication skills. Compensation was great as it payed for my classes and stipend.
