    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    very quick and good, but they lie in the interview. they will avoid telling you things about the position so you can't really make a good decision to take it or not. It was an easy interview cause the job was bad and no one wanted it.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There are three stages of the interview process: initial phone screening, first round of interviews, and second round of interview. The initial phone screening with HR rep was unnecessarily hostile and discouraging (since the HR rep knows nothing about the actual nature of the work). The first and second round of interviews were much more open and comfortable.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in September 2011.

    Interview

    The process took about 3 months from first interview to job offer. I met with same person twice and then finally had my interview with HR. I believe people usually interview with HR as part of screening process, but my interview process was done in reverse and meeting with HR person felt like just a technicality.

    Program Assistant Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NYU (New York University) (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I first got a phone interview, which went well. The interviewer said exactly how long it was going to take, and her expectations about the interview – what she wanted to achieve. Then, I was invited to a personal interview. This time, the first interviewer was with the director of the center, who was less friendly. I perceived from the first moment she didn't like me. Maybe I'm wrong, but there was that impression.
