    Resident Advisor Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Emory University in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Filled out application online. Needed two recommendations, one from a Professor and the other from a supervisor from a job or extracurricular activity. Was then contacted to come to an interview process that lasts about 2 hours in total. We had a group interview, where the panel watched how we as candidates interacted with one another to discuss issues at Emory, then later a 2 on 1 interview with two ResLife staff members.

    Clinical Research Coordinator III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source - interviewed at Emory University.

    Interview Details

    Worked here in the past. Was hired back. Interview process consisted of sending resume and one meeting with boss. Pretty simple. Most people are referral hires in the department. No aptitude/personality tests. There is a background/drug screen after you've been given an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    Good luck negotiating. HR is pretty unlikely to offer a better salary since they have to make sure that everyone gets paid the same amount for a job title with similar work experience/background.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Interview Details

    The process was simple. There was only one interview and it was quite informal. The questions were not at all tricky. I applied online on the emory website and was contacted for an interview about a week later. I was actually offered the job based on my resume qualifications, so the interview was simply a chance for them to se if I was who I said i was.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Emory University in January 2012.

    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!

    Interview Questions
    • What would you tell a consulting MBA job seeker to do?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    HR is generally slow is hiring for clinical research nurses due to their stringent screening process. There are typically 3 to 4 interviews which they try to schedule in one or two days.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you function in extremely stressful environments?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Learn from my mistake. Please make sure to negotiate a good salary upfront as there are no bonuses or overtime and merit raises are meager.
