    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arcadia University in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, approximately 1.5 months later received an email scheduling a Skype interview. Ended up doing the interview by phone, lasted about a half hour. The staff with whom I spoke were friendly and I felt as comfortable as one can feel while doing a phone interview. I was quoted a salary offer over the phone and was told that I'd hear back about in-person interviews in two weeks; after three weeks I received an automated email saying that someone else was chosen for the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arcadia University in September 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple, I had a phone interview with someone from their HR department and then several weeks later was invited to come in for a panel interview with the entire Admissions team. Found the process a bit more formal and uncomfortable than it needed to be and they didn't get a feel for my personality.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to prepare a short presentation as if I was trying to convince someone to attend either Arcadia or my alma mater. While I felt I did a fine job, no feedback was provided. Questions they asked were very standard interview questions.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Arcadia University in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in April called for phone interview in July. Had second in person interview later in July. Panel seemed unorganized and asked the same question in different ways or questions that did not pertain to the role. Hiring manger gave many different timelines and did not stick to any. Entire process took 4 months.
    Accepted an offer elsewhere based on lack of organization and disposition of the panel.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arcadia University (Glenside, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    There was an application, then a group interview, followed by an individual interview. The group interview was long and tedious, the individual interview I felt like went much better. I was initially offered an alternate position and got the job a semester later.

    met with the hiring manager (Director) and another manager. It was relaxed. none of the typical interview questions.
