    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at New England Aquarium.

    Interview

    The process was straight forward and easy for the initial phase.They called very soon after the application was submitted on-line. A phone interview was schedule with a HR agent, so the questions were more related to resume experience, general behavioral questions, etc.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at New England Aquarium (Boston, MA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and then got called in for a first round interview. Basic questions. Dress nicely and act professional. Then I got a second round interview and another set of basic questions about how you deal with public speaking and different ways that you deal with different age groups. Be personable and let your own personality shine. As a visitor educator, this is very important!

    Interview

    The first interview was with the head of interns and volunteers. Standard questions, how you'd deal with difficulties, where your interests lie, what your dream job is, what your understanding of the internships is and how you'd contribute to them. Second interview would have been with the head of a specific internship.

    Environmental Technician Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Received a phone interview and perhaps three weeks later received an in-person interview. HR rep that I met with was courteous, friendly, and asked standard questions. I was then interviewed by the lead technician who was totally uninterested in speaking with me and seemed annoyed that I took her away from her job. She asked me maybe two questions and then I did my best by asking as many questions as I could about the job to keep the interview from going awkward. Seemed like they already made a decision for the position before meeting with me. Position required a bachelor's degree, the pay was very low at $14 an hour, and the hours were about 20 a week during weekday business hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at New England Aquarium in April 2009.

    Interview

    The two people who would have been my supervisor asked me a number of questions about my management experience and style. None of the questions were very unexpected. The interviewers were courteous and professional and gave me a good idea what it would be like to work at the aquarium had I been hired. I wore business attire, which may have been too much for this place where khakis and a polo are the standard uniform. Overall I thought I had good answers for most questions, but I suspect my nervousness (desperation?) and academic overqualification for a position normally held by older people without degrees hurt my chances of advancing beyond this stage.
