Very Easy Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Fordham University in January 2010.
Interview Details – I applied online, I believe, (this was awhile ago) and the entire process was very smooth and simple. I was contacted by telephone to schedule an in-person interview for shortly thereafter. When I got the interview, some basic questions were asked, and after I passed the interview the start date was set for the following Monday.
Interview Question – I wouldn't say that there were any particularly difficult questions, although since I did not have much administrative assistant experience at that point, I did have to explain how I felt I was qualified for the job. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I didn't attempt to negotiate the salary.

Interviewed at Fordham University
Interview Details – I was contacted by a friend who asked me if I was interested in working in a particular Fordham GBA office. I was interviewed for a position by my would-be supervisor and a current GA who was working in the same position.
Interview Question – What would you change about the services offered by our office? Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Fordham University in March 2011.
Interview Details – Drawn out and torturous. Interview bordered on abusive mental cruelty. Racist remarks were made in regard to other candidates that were vying for the same position. It felt unlike an interview and much like blackmail. Psychotic future boss conducted the interview, and was so incompetent that it was obvious that she had no idea what she was doing and was completely unprepared. Completely unprofessional.
Interview Question – "I don't want another lazy one of THEM if you know what I mean, so are you gonna help me? How?" View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation permissible.
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fordham University.
Interview Details – Applied by email. Called in for the interview by email in 2-3 weeks. Office assistant is very polite and helpful. First interview was with the director consisting of a combination of case and behavioral interview. Lasted 45 minutes. I liked the director's attitude.
Next week, assistant emails for a second interview with a senior guy and a meeting with "Future colleagues" on the same day. The senior guy was just going through the interview for tge sake of it. He even said that he can influence decisions for the position ( attitude!). His interview was mostly based on my experience. About 30 mins...
then comes the meeting with colleagues. There were 4 of them. All were friendly and approachable. They ecen asked me how I plan to commute giving me the impression that I am a top candidate for them. The meeting with them was casual and informative
I left the premises after both interviews about 2 months back. Still haven't heard anything. I followed up once asking if a decision has been made but never got a reply. Wish they responded since I was one of the top 3 to make it to round 2.
I don't believe in thank you emails since its business - they pay us to work 7-8 hours a day. What to thank employers for? We spend time too meeting with them.

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Fordham University in October 2008.
Interview Details – There is a long "waitlist" as this is the most desirable student position with the highest pay. The interview is not too intense or probing, though there are two test components. First, a written test with 6 questions from the NYS DMV Licensing exam - this sounds easy but the questions are not intuitive for experienced drivers, and it's wiser to study than lose a desirable job for such a silly reason. There is a driving component to the interview, which can be nerve wracking, but they are not too critical- they simply want to see that you're not reckless.
Interview Question – The NYS driving exam can really through you a curveball, and you need 5/6 questions correct to drive. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Absolutely no negotiation.

The interview lasted from 9-5. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming for the most part.
