Coordinator Interview

Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Harvard University in November 2008.

Interview Details – Harvard is known for a lengthy interview process. If you make it past interview one, then you know you're probably in. They also do background searches so if you have a record, try someone else.

Interview Question – Can't remember a really difficult question but I do know that the job I interviewed for is not the job I've been doing.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated for a higher salary because they will start at the very bottom of the range.

Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Employee

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harvard University in January 2010.

Interview Details – I interviewed with 3 of the senior managers I would be working with, for half an hour each. They each asked different questions, but they were pretty basic. Nothing behavioral or anything. The actual HR person was incredibly useless and slow, I had to follow up several times.

Interview Question – What did you dislike about your last job?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was zilch! It's hard when the salary ranges are publicly posted on their Web site. I asked the HR person for the highest cap and she offered the minimum salary.
