I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Rafael Vinoly Architects in October 2013.
Interview Details – I was on time, but the interview started about 20 minutes late. I waited in a very nice reception area. The interview itself was about 40 min and I was asked fairly typical questions about my experience. We went through my portfolio in detail. The interviewer then told me about the work they have in the office and what they are looking for. He also described the specific role I would be suitable for. It all sounded interesting and it was something I was looking for. It was a good interview. Subsequent to the interview I was able to get in touch with the interviewer and get even more detail on the projects and specific work required.
Interview Question – There were no tricks to this interview. It was conducted in a very efficient and professional way. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. It was a pretty bad time in the economy, so they had an advantage. But the work also looked interesting and challenging, and this was mostly driving my decision to accept.
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Rafael Vinoly Architects in December 2010.
Interview Details – Initial interview went well, though I was warned that the job required 70-80 hours a week... Second interview was on a Sunday --yes a Sunday. The interviewer was late, did not introduce himself, did not apologize for being late, and spent the entire interview negotiating down my salary requirement.
Interview Question – Are you willing to work 70-80 hours a week all the time? View Answer
