    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and I was contacted by HR.It was an email asking if I was interested, then set up a phone interview. After I pass, scheduled a one-on-one with HR then met with the director of the department on the same day. A few days later, I got a phone call offering the position.

    Interview Questions

    • The phone interview is pretty typical as well as the one-on-one with HR. Questions such as, where do you see yourself in 5 years? Tell me something about yourself? Scenarios questions handling difficult customer. If you're good at interviewing, you'll be fine but if you have a hard time, do research on the company and apply your abilities and past experience to the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. Salary was entry level and I just started out. If you have experience, you can probably try. Just keep in mind, they start pretty low.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Be prepared for a typing test and a basic Microsoft Office test. Also be prepared for no negotiation for pay. What you are offered is what you will get. The process can be long as you go through a few departments, so be patient. You may not get the department that you initially interviewed for. Be prepared to accept a job in whatever department you are assigned to.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were the typical questions you would answer at any interview. I never like the what is your weakness.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation at all. You get a very legalese contract and you sign it. It is a take it or leave it type of deal.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I applied to few positions online and got an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. When she called me she sounded cold and immediately started by asking questions about my background, she even asked details about a job experience I had 5 years ago. I did not find the questions relevant and we did not discuss the positions she had. Few days later I received an email saying I had an appointment for a group interview, I didn't go.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Academy of Art University (San Francisco, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I went to one of the recruitment calls they posted on Craigslist. I had to wait a long time to meet with a recruiter. The recruiter was difficult to talk to and not very welcoming. She also didn't understand my questions, including simple ones like "Is there a variety of duties?" She asked me to repeat it and said “I don’t understand that question.” The interview was also very short.
