    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online via the Emory University website, the HR automated website sent me updates as I was moved through the process. Once the hiring manager decided to interview me, I received and email letting me know of their interest and scheduling the interview. What was especially helpful is that he sent me bullet points of what he would like to discuss so I was able to make notes and be very prepared and have a very productive conversation.

    Library Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Emory University.

    Interview

    I applied online. The process took about a month and a half. Overall the staff was friendly but it was not as organized as I would have liked. For example, I was applying to two separate positions and when the recruiter for one of the positions called she scheduled a time for a phone interview. The other simply began asking me questions without giving me time to prepare and with no previous warning, so I was on speaker in a conference room with four separate employees and no preparation. Perhaps this was a simple screening, but I would have liked to been better informed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Emory University.

    Interview

    Most of hiring process through online--can be hard to navigate, but not impossible. I do not think my process was normal. The semester was about to begin and they needed to fill the position. I have found the administration here easy to work with and highly ethical. Emory is a good place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Emory University in June 2014.

    Interview

    Over the course of 4 months I interviewed with everyone and their mama. It seemed almost as if they were still trying to justify the position. Just kept going and going, then after the last phone call, where he asked the question below, I never heard from anyone again. Very RUDE, after I spent so much time going there to talk to everyone. one on one. I deserved a call, email, etc. or something to say "thanks for your time, but no thanks" at the very least.
