    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on the university career website. Very very slow interview process with five rounds of interview. I was approached by the hiring manager in March 2015 and had my initial screen. Initial screen lasted for about 25mins and later in April 2015 i had my second phone interview with the team. This was more of behavioral questions about my work and it lasted about 45mins. I had my third phone technical interview in the May 2015. This lasted for 30mins and purely technical. Then again in the last week of May 2015, i had a 30min skype interview call with the chief officers of the university which was again behavioral. In June 2015, finally i was called in for an in person interview which involved meeting the whole IT/non IT team and having lunch with them. The final round was more casual and it was good to meet everybody. This lasted for 3 to 4 hours.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Good. Ethical.
