    Interview Details

    The interview process is like most. There is the initial paperwork, then testing depending on what position you are applying for. Then, the people that are considered "ideal" candidates are invited in for an interview, which may involve more than one person at a time.

    The negotiation phase was very short as I had been out of work for some time and needed to secure employment as soon as possible.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at UMBC in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I found out that my initial communications were a reflection of the overall process I would be going through after I was hired - meaning that because ambiguity was a part of the interview, it would also be a part of the job. Discovering the connection each of the employees has with each other was important because it meant that there was a way that I could reach out to respond later on for following up with a thank you note.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was about what I thought art was, and how I believed it applied to this position. It made me believe I was being asked to be too subjective, and it seemed off-topic to me.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation, it was a take it or leave it scenario.
