    Administrative Aide II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NYU (New York University) in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very rude woman whose current student workers did not follow up. I emded up calling at 9 am to follow up a confirmation for a 2pm call. The Director answered and basically was very nice but when tne rep called she seemed very embarrassed that the Director had delivered the message. Eitjer way she called and spoke plainly and quickly , as though mocking my voice with undertones of protocol almost like a robot. I question if she just called for affirmative action quotas . Very rude.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and didn't hear back from HR until almost a year later. I received an email stating that they were setting up interviews and was given days and times that I could come in. I replied back and had an interview a week later.

    The day of the interview I came in and had to call the person interviewing me so that someone could come get me by the elevators (who never showed up) but some random person walking past the doors let me in. Once I arrived at the location I was greeted by the receptionist at the desk. She let my interviewer know that i was here and she came out within 5 minutes. She came with a few forms for me to fill out and offered me something to drink. After I filled out my forms I gave them back to the receptionist and went into the office about 2 minutes later. Overall the interview took about 30-45 minutes. It was a very relaxing interview.

    After the interview it took about a month before I received a response about the job. I knew it was going to be long before I received a response because I was notified in the beginning of the interview that this would be a long process.

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    This process was not difficult at all. It was merely going through my resume/ cv and explaining how I got to that point. I discussed previous research experience and my excitement to work at NYU. It felt more like a directed conversation than like an interview. There was a back and forth of both sides asking questions and giving answers.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions. The most difficult, if this can be consider difficult, was, "how does your previous work/ research experience help with the current research project?"   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at NYU (New York University) in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent an email with regards to this open position. I received a prompt response, and an interview was then set up. The staff was quite friendly, and considering this was my first interview, it went pretty well. Not too many difficult questions, just some general questions and clarifications based on what was on my resume. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job since they where looking for a different skill set than what I had to offer.
