    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at UMBC (Baltimore, MD) in September 2012.

    Interview

    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

    There was no negotiation, it was a take it or leave it scenario.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at UMBC (Catonsville, MD) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.
