    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Saint Paul, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Saint Paul, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Macalester College in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I give them credit for being quick and polite about the whole interview process. I received an email for a phone screening, and then 4 business days later an email to come in for an interview in just a couple of days after that, and then 5 days later got an email that I didn't get the job. Interview questions were pretty standard. Conversations each time lasted 30-45 minutes.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Macalester College.

    Interview Details

    I actually just befriended a professor and he asked me about it. He seemed very thrilled with my proactive reaching out for a job. We had a few conversations and he decided to add me to the research even if I hadn't know to apply in the first place.

    Technology Support Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Macalester College in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job over the college's student employment website. A day or so later, I was contacted over email to set-up an interview time. The interview was not quite an interview. If I recall correctly, I was not asked about my qualifications or past experience. Instead, we talked about work expectation, procedures, my availability and set up my work schedule.
