    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A very cozy and conversational interview. Applicants were allowed to be themselves and it was more of an intellectual conversation between friends or relatives. Aside from the standard questions, the interviewer wanted to see who you were as a person rather than just a number. It didn't have a time limit and applicants could be as expressible and honest as they liked. They looked at character a lot more than just credentials.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interviews are not in depth; does not focus on passion for teaching. Seems to be a hit and miss interview process. Peer involvement is limited s you don't have chance to evaluate department collegiality.

    Development Officer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in September 2008.

    Interview

    I was recruited by an outside search firm retained to support Wake Forest in its development department's expansion. After a fairly thorough phone screen, I heard nothing for about 4 weeks, then received a phone call directly from the in-house recruiting team to set up an in-person interview. The whole process was beautifully managed, from putting me up at Graylen, an historic house that is now a hotel and conference center, to the actual day of interviews. It was not until I got there that I realized I was a finalist, not an early-round candidate, and met with nearly a dozen people in one day. Everyone was gracious, easy to interact with during the interviews, and seemed well-prepared.

    Negotiation

    Very reasonable.

    prescreen on the phone, visit for 1 on 1 interview, drug test within 2 days, backgrounch check, the best thing to do is be calm and give good eye contact. it is hard to get in without knowing someone. when you get the offer the drug test must be taken in 2 days or less or they will withdraw the offer
