    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Temple University.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job online and was contacted about a week later to set up an interview which took place on campus. Very straightforward, and I was only interviewed by one person. Only took about 15 minutes give or take. My interviewer was very friendly and answered all of my questions. I was also introduced to the other staff members I'd be working with if I got the job. They were very nice as well.

    I applied online – interviewed at Temple University.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was straight forward and helpful. I think the people there want to help students out since this job is more for student workers. The supervisors were great during the interview making me feel comfortable and they told me exactly what was expected for the job.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Temple University.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was long and extensive. I applied for the position in February and did not get an email regarding interest to interview until April. Then I didn't get to interview until May because the Project Manager did not start until then. As far as the interview, I led the conversation during the process. Not many questions were asked of me, but I prepared a few for them regarding the study in advance.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Temple University.

    Interview Details

    All communications in the hiring process were done via email. You will work with HR, not the person interviewing or ultimately, supervising you. Ask for more money when you start. They may not be able to budge, but it's your best shot of earning more. Also, don't expect quick turnaround times.

    Negotiation Details
    I received an offer, I countered, they held at their initial offer and I accepted.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Temple University in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online about ~2 weeks later got an email from a professor Rabinowitz to come in.

    Interview was very awkward - this was a 4.5 hr drive for me one way and he had no questions prepared for me. I asked varying questions about the research and also how the lab was run. Got a tour of the lab facilities.

    Very unprofessional, did not contact me at all after. I found out the position had been closed by checking online.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Temple University.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by five senior managers, each of whom had conflicting agendas about the position's essential functions and to whom the new hire would report. The position for which I was interviewed was "Assistant Director of Development." I was asked if I would accept another title at the same grade level until HR approved the creation of this new position.

    Interview Questions
    • It was clear that the five individuals had not met before the interview because the individual interests and ideas were competing with the others. When there were too many uncomfortable silences, I performed the interview that was well-rehearsed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was an internal candidate and the position was a two step promotion, for which they claimed the salary for the grade level and limited the salary increase to 8%. Ten years later, my salary is still below the "new hire range."

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Temple University in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Everything is structured. First, you apply. HR forwards your resume to the department if applicable. Someone from the department will call you to set up an interview. It was just a face to face interview. No phone interview. I met with a panel of 3 (Director, Assistant Director, and the Program Coordinator). The questions were standard, tell me about yourself? Why are you interested in this position? What can you bring to this position?

    The entire process from applying online until hiring took about 3 months.
