    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Babson College.

    Interview

    I had at least 5 meetings, including a phone interview. I had both 1:1 and group meetings, one a half day that I needed to talk off work.. Very positive reactions. Very qualified for position including I was teaching same courses at another Boston college. I was very surprised and disappointed that I got just an email saying I was not the chosen candidate...no explanation just "we have decided not to offer you an appointment". I asked for deciding factors and still received back a vague response.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Babson College.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen. From there came for a half-day, in-person interview. Met with people from HR, and the department I applied for. The whole process took about a month and a half from the time I submitted my application to the time I accepted the job. It was a great process overall. The only weird thing is that lunch was scheduled into my interview, but I was on my own. I thought that was bizarre and unlike other higher ed interview experiences I've had.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Babson was a big one - multiple people asked me that throughout the day.   Answer Question

    Program Manager, Executive Education Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Babson College (Wellesley, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with 2 hiring managers. Nothing overly in depth. It ended on a good note as they said I should expect an invitation to campus for a face to face interview. I received the invitation after the holidays. I was given a schedule of 3 half hour meetings-- one with a fellow program manager, one with the 2 hiring managers, and one with HR.

    I really wanted to want this job. The fellow program manager and HR rep were friendly. The hiring managers I felt no rapport with. They also had both written "maybe" so it was clearly visible on the printed copies each of them had of my resume. It just didn't enable a welcoming feeling. I had left my job at the end of 2015, which was since we had first spoken by phone. I updated my resume and started off by telling them the changes. One later said "we come from the school where you don't leave a job until you have another one." At that moment, I knew this was not the job for me. The hiring managers seemed disconnected and buried with their own problems. I contemplated not going to the HR portion, but I did. A few days later I withdrew my application. I never heard anything either way so clearly it was not a fit on either side. I received a much better offer two weeks later so things do happen for a reason!

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wellesley, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Babson College (Wellesley, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening, and was then asked to come in for 2 in-person interviews. I followed-up after the second in-person interview and was told I would hear back soon. I received a basic form email the following week stating that they had gone with another candidate. This was completely understandable, as I do not think it was the best fit, but they could have at least sent a personalized email after I had participated in so many interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Babson College.

    Interview

    I was called in for a first round interview and met with 2 managers, one of which being the person that would be my direct supervisor. It took a couple of weeks, but I followed up and was then called back for a second interview. The second time, I met with about half of the office, and spent almost a full day on site. I met with a few individuals at a time, and finished by meeting the director of the office. Thankfully, everyone was very welcoming and did not allow me to feel intimidated by their group size!

    Interview Questions

    • Questions weren't too difficult, but a bit repetitive. Most were "how can your past experiences help you in this position?" but rephrased.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate my salary.
