    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at University of Utah in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    It took them 3 months after I applied for them to call me. When they did I was asked to come in and take a test that included questions about SQL, Excel, and problem solving. After taking the test it only took a couple of days fro them to call me for an interview. The odd thing was that both times they called, for the test and the interview, they just had me write down the address and time and never sent me a confirmation email with all the details.

    The actual interview had the typical interview questions like "explain a time when you had to confront a colleague." It was a very standard interview and they seemed bored and uninterested to be there from the very beginning, even though I felt like I gave good answers and tried to liven it up a little. There were two financial analysts and one person from HR in the interview. They explained all of the job functions and so-called benefits of working for them. The benefits really just included the same things that every other company has, namely a couple of weeks of PTO a year, 401k match, Health Insurance, and a few Holidays off. Nothing spectacular. They said that the next step would be to meet with their boss if he chose to and then they would make their decision. It was about a week and a half later when I received an email indicating that they were not going to select me for the job.

    Overall I was unimpressed with the organization of the interview process and the company seemed very bureaucratic.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at University of Utah in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very straight forward. I simply submitted my resume online. I needed the recommendation of two teacher from high school (or professors at the University of Utah). After I submitted my resume, I received a call from the professor from the University of Utah. He asked me a few questions about my interests in his research and some of my coursework. Overall, it was a very simply and relaxed process.

    Marketing & Communications Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Salt Lake City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at University of Utah in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It took about two weeks to go through the entire interview process. Initial communications were by phone to schedule an interview onsite for one-on-one with their Director of Marketing. The day I went to the interview, it was not one-on-one, it was a panel interview with three interviewers on the panel. The director was very upbeat and nice. The other two individuals were the exact opposite. The interview was in a small cluttered office. They said I would hear from them with a final decision one way or the other by the end of the week. Started off with questions 'Tell me about yourself' and 'what's the difference between marketing and branding'...I sent a follow up thank you email and called Monday after not hearing from them. On Tuesday I received a letter via post mail stating I didn't get the job.
