    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Emory University.

    Interview Details

    Remember this was 12+ years ago so I'm sure some practices have changed. I met with the CFO for a 1:1 interview, she felt I had too much experience for the front office. She interviewed me for a upcoming position. I meet with 2 other supervisors that day which went well and received a call back by 4pm that day for a follow up interview. I came in 24 hrs later and was offered the job by the HR Director. He was very funny and made me feel relaxed.

    Research Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Emory University.

    Interview Details

    It was very important to know someone inside Emory. It is a huge bureaucracy, and I feel sorry for those who do not have an insider to advance the process. Having such an insider, it was very easy for me. The red tape really occurred in salary negotiation; Emory wants to stay within specific boundaries, some of which are unrealistic.

    Interview Questions
    • the toughest question is sometimes the most expected: Why would you want to be at Emory? Well, its a great university with wonderful benefits in a great city. Duh... But if you answer with that, it isn't original, so you're kinda stuck.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The red tape really occurred in salary negotiation; Emory wants to stay within specific boundaries, some of which are unrealistic. But don't give in to their first offer; Emory floats on money and they will hire who they want, a few extra dollars won't crush them.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Emory University in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews. The first was through a group setting and the second was with the PI over the phone. They were somewhat relaxed and seemed like they were eager to hire someone asap. The group interview consisted of me explaining what my last two work experiences were and any thing I wanted to add that was not on my resume like volunteer experiences. There were not many behavioral questions other than,
    "Where do you see yourself in 5 years? and What do you like to do for fun?"

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Salary, somewhat; however, they were deadlocked on a price. Remember to try to get it as high as possible, but do not let go of a great position if the desired salary and actual offer differs by a couple thousand dollars per year.

    Interview Details

    Must apply via Emory University HR website. Be prepared to enter details about educational background as well as contact information for all professional references up front.

    Highly recommend connecting with someone in the department--HR often does not forward all resumes to the hiring manager!

    No ability to negotiate. Even though salary was advertised with a $15K range, hiring manager was only able to offer base level advertsied--this is quite common in higher education.

    Filled out application online. Needed two recommendations, one from a Professor and the other from a supervisor from a job or extracurricular activity.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Emory University in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview and then on site interview with direct team I would be working with, marketing team, CIO and another manager. From my perspective the interview went well. They asked why did I want to work for Emory and to describe my work experience. They where late to the in person interview. Unfortunately the process took WAY too long 2 months. I had two interviews in the mean time from other companies with offers before I even got an update no longer under consideration. So regardless of an offer I would of had to turn it down.
