I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NYU (New York University) in August 2013.

Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NYU (New York University) in May 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online after receiving an employment announcement from career advisor. Invited to interview approximately 3 days later the following week with senior research leader. Simple case-style questions to assess analytical thinking and previous employment experience. Office seemed a bit disorganized once I probed a bit about the work style (i.e. adhoc).

Human Resources Administrator Interview

Human Resources Administrator
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NYU (New York University) in February 2010.

Interview Details – Interviewed with Director and direct manager. Secondary with team member & Director. If not a position in HR, the timeline as communicated is adhered to. If you are looking for that HR position, the Director does not limit to the allotted time frame. Give yourself more time than communicated because it is likely that the interview will go beyond that.

Interview Question – What direct contributions have you made in the past that greatly improved the work for others, and how would you bring that to our team here?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate an additional $500. They generally offer below the budgeted range, so there is some wiggle room, but only by $1000 or so.
