Social Media Coordinator Interview

Social Media Coordinator

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Oregon.

Interview Details – Phone interview with 5 people, got a little awkward, wasn't sure who exactly to direct my question to or talk to. Asked very specific questions about what I would do in specific situations - and why. Also, got asked back-to-back questions in rapid fire, which caused me to get sort of overwhelmed.

Interview Question – "Describe your desired timeline of social media posts for a football game day"   Answer Question

Quality Assurance Interview

Quality Assurance
Eugene, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Oregon in March 2013.

Interview Details – A simple, brief interview about my university experience. I graduated from UO so they were familiar with what was expected of me knowledge-wise. I sent an email to the hiring group and they set up a 30 minute interview just to get an idea of who I am and what my skillset is.

Interview Question – What is your experience with Amazon Web Services?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Income prices are fixed, so little negotiation.

Research Assistant Interview

Research Assistant

I applied through college or university and interviewed at University of Oregon.

Interview Details – It helps to already have worked in the department, and for management to already want to hire you. It is an unfair advantage to others on the outside, but fulfills a hiring process legality. To find out if a job is already taken, call and ask if anyone from the department is being considered or has applied.

Interview Question – No questions were difficult or unexpected.   Answer Question

Office Specialist II Interview

Office Specialist II
Eugene, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Oregon in August 2011.

Interview Details – 3 different interview panels with 3-4 on each panel. The panels were made up from people who dealt with the department on some level, but only the final interview panel was made up of the actual department members. Director made job offer to my husband by phone, including starting salary. This seemed strange and unprofessional.

Interview Question – When placement tests required hand-scoring, and strict time requirement were in place, what would you do if you couldn't locate the previously scheduled faculty members and time was running out?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Unable to negotiate starting salary.

Art Interview

Art
Eugene, OR

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at University of Oregon in March 2012.

Information Technology Consultant I Interview

Information Technology Consultant I
Eugene, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at University of Oregon in June 2009.

Interview Details – After initial HR filtering, I was interviewed by a panel of upper-level management. They explained the position, the role of the department, etc and then began asking me questions. Questions consisted of hypothetical situations and the best solution, questions such as the difference between IMAP/POP and when to use each, etc. Testing portion created a scenario where a new employee needed accounts created, etc. There was a PC side and a Mac side to the test, as well as basic hardware understanding (monitor wasn't plugged in right, keyboard was loose, etc)

Interview Question – Create a Google Account and set to sync IMAP with OSX Mail.app (timed)   View Answer
