    Program Coordinator, Entrepreneurship Design Thinking Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Arizona State University (Scottsdale, AZ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Process: 20 minute phone interview (4 people on the call, very rushed), and 2 hour in-person interview w/ a challenge and presentation to the 4 person review team

    Result: After personally emailing me to set up the interviews, the hiring manager was unresponsive to follow-up emails after the second interview. Two weeks after interviewing, I received an automated do-not-reply email letting me know I would not be moving forward. Disappointing follow-up after a time intensive interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arizona State University.

    Interview

    This was just a phone screen. So the first part was the introduction of the profile and work the team does. Then the interviewers went in to say that it is going to be theoretical ones. All the questions were about the solid mechanics, dynamics, and materials science. They were very nice.

    Creative Position Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After working in an open agency environment, the complete lack of personality and warmth from the individuals who made up the group interview was distracting, one individual spent a chunk of the interview reading emails on his phone. Every interaction was scripted and the smiles in the room were quick to disappear. There were some additional questions, but only to clarify statements made. Had high hopes for this one, but sadly this is not what I would consider to be a friendly and creative environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Round-robin format, mainly questions pertaining directly to the skills needed for the position, i.e. 'Explain how you would x', 'What do you consider success?'   Answer Question

    Director of Auxiliary Business Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Arizona State University (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had an initial interview with a recruiter. I had to complete three essay questions to make it through the gate to get an interview with the hiring manager at ASU. The hiring manager was a VP at ASU. She had her asst. call, at the very last minute, to postponed my 1st interview. We rescheduled and then she was 15 minutes for a 30 minute call. It was very obvious to me that this VP had already decided who she wanted in the position and was just quickly going through the exercise of speaking to candidates from the recruiter - so that all would seem "fair".

    Interview Questions

    Instructional Design Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Arizona State University (Scottsdale, AZ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, it took several weeks before I was contacted. First had a 15 minute phone screen with the manager of the department and a member of the leadership team. This was a pretty straightforward conversation, nothing difficult. I was contacted for an in person interview; there were three interviewers. The interview was a little erratic. There was supposed to be a series of questions with each interviewer taking a turn, but they suddenly began bouncing back and forth, interrupting each other to ask different questions, and going back and forth with new questions that were not on the list and then returning back to old ones that I previously answered. It made it hard to keep cohesive thoughts together and remember to address all of the components of the initial questions that were posed. The interview also went off topic to areas that didn't involve my personal skill set, so this was challenging to navigate and made it harder to return back to what I personally had to offer. The disorganized nature left me unable to present my qualifications properly, and I didn't get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Various - Why ASU? What do you see as your ultimate career goal/position down the line and how does this job help you get there? What was the most difficult job you ever had? etc.   Answer Question
