Administrator Interview

Administrator
Brookville, Nassau, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Long Island University.

Interview Details – Was interviewed by one person--this person knew me--so I was hired on the spot without a formal interview process---of course, this took place over 10 years ago. That's not the hiring practice now. Now, there is a strict formal interview process that HR oversees and no one gets hired without a thorough screening.

Interview Question – The most unexpected question was, how soon can you start?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The base salary.

Secretary Interview

Secretary
Brooklyn, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Long Island University in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was recently contacted by LIU-School of Business for an interview for the Secretary IV position. The interview went well, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The first interview was a group interview, and although this was my first time in a group interview setting, I found it to be very comfortable and informative. The second interview was with the Dean of the Department and it as well was pleasant, the questions asked were your typical interview questions, and the dialogue between myself and the interviewers was great. I haven't heard from them regarding the position as of yet, I was told within in the next week, I really hope that I nailed it and receive an offer, it is the perfect position for me, and in a University setting, which is what I have been looking for for quite some time.

Interview Question – How will this position prepare you for your long term goals?   Answer Question
