    Assistant Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at George Washington University.

    Interview Details

    Multiple group interviews that occurred on 3-4 occasions. As is typical they spent more time evaluating me than reviewing the work environment, senior leadership, or the actual position. What wan't clear is how fractured the community is and how divisions work more in silos than as cohesive units. In addition to the employee experience, the student experience also suffers.

    Assistant Director, Alumni Affairs Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at George Washington University.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was extraordinarily long and drawn out. I sent in my application and received an invitation to a phone interview the next week. After my phone interview I didn't hear back from them for 6 weeks at which time I was asked to come in for an in-person interview...in the next two days. Post interview it was another 5 weeks until I was invited to come back for a second in-person interview. Following that interview, it was another 6 weeks until I heard that I didn't get the job. I'm not sure that the folks there understand that interviewing is an expensive endeavor: clothing, travel, printing costs, etc. There really didn't seem to be any kind of attention paid to the time an interviewee devotes to the process. Coming from out of town to in-person interviews that took about an hour/hour and a half just didn't feel like it was worth my time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at George Washington University in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume, I was called two days later to come in for an interview. I was explained how the temp program worked and then asked a series of questions about my resume. They mainly wanted you to explain in detail the tasks that you have done in previous jobs. I was asked about different skills that I had, if I was familiar with certain software programs, and what types of positions I was interested in. Be prepared to give a salary range requirement. A few days later I was offered an interview for an open temp position. I interviewed with the supervisor and received an offer on the spot.
