    Campus recruiting. Two rounds in a row. Two interviews, each one is half an hour. One will ask you technical questions and the other ask you behavior question. One week later the HR will call you about the result and give you offer at that time. You only have two weeks or so to decide.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Emory University (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    Initial communications and interview process very easy and seamless. Interviewers are laid back and helpful. Groups like to interview candidates so the team can understand if the candidate will be a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • Depending on what group you are interviewing with, questions such as sensitivity to other cultures, religions and backgrounds may come up. This is important when working with diverse groups and exciting to have opportunities to interact with people who come from all over the world with different experiences.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Emory University in April 2014.

    Interview

    preliminary phone interview, then all day interview. Gave me things to prepare and present for the all day interview. You will meet with a lot of different people. Make sure to send thank you notes or emails and to remember specific things from your conversations. They look for people who already understand and Emory university as a whole so a lot of research on the universities fundraising practices was necessary.

    I was initially hired as the first assistant director for the Office of Student Conduct, then promoted to associate director over four years later. My selection process was typical for a student affairs position: I submitted a cover letter, resume, and professional references. I had a telephone interview, then was invited for an on campus interview that was a full day in length and involved meetings with various constituency groups.

    Interview Questions

    • At dinner the day before my interviewing began I was given a case study that was a composite of several difficult situations that office had recently addressed. I was asked to review the case and be prepared to discuss it at my final interview of the day.   1 Answer
