    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Georgetown University.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted within a few days to set up a phone interview. The phone interview went well, and so we arranged an in person interview for the following week. The in person interview consisted of 4 separate 1:1 interviews with different member of the department the same day, each lasting for 20-30 minutes. I got a good feel of the office environment and the people seemed very nice, and enjoyed what they were doing.

    Interview

    No interview for the chemistry department. Submit application and show up for exams if invited to join. Had to take ACS exams on five subjects and pass at least four. You have two more opportunities to retake whatever exams you do not pass. Overall, it will take a semester to know if they will keep you or not.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online and met with office manager a week later.The position was a non-work study position. I met with several people in the office and chatted with each for 5 minutes or so. It was a small 10 person team. Later I met 1:1 with the office manager. This was the formal component of the interview. We talked about my experience with microsoft office and with office operations. We also discussed my involvement in activities and sports on campus so as to better gauge how much time I could commit per week. Chatting with people probably played a large role in my getting the position because interpersonal skills are such a huge component of the admin assistant job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Georgetown University (Washington, DC) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Waited months after job posting to contact me for an interview and was interviewed by multiple people. After initial interview met with Dean of the department and was selected for follow up interview with the Dean of the school a week later. Offered job quickly after second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Specific about functions of the job and to give an example when something did not go as planned/I messed up and learned from it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I would suggest negotiating more to future applicants. I was told I was being offered the hiring max and learned that was not the case. I would also suggest for applicants to interview the future supervisor/team members to get a sense as to whether they "fit" and would enjoy it. I had a red flag moment where my future supervisor talked about wanting to be able to trust me and I realized that her management style is just not something I liked later on - so vet away and be sure it's also good for you! I've learned from this to ask about company culture and supervisor style to make sure I get as much as I can out of the next job I interview for.
