    Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Boston College (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter. I had 2 calls with the recruiter, then a call scheduled with the hiring manager which was cancelled 3 times. Then I was told they decided not to move forward. Then I was contacted 2 days later saying they would like to move forward and had a call scheduled with the hiring manager. I was asked to code a sample project (being a role for a coder). The project instructions were to create a "fresh and modern design". I'm not a designer, and the role was note described as a design role, so I coded it in a fresh way, but left the design as is. I was not asked to move forward after that because they were expecting a better design. So they got a free project out of it.

    Resident Assistant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boston College (Boston College, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of an online application with general background/involvement experience and an essay question on why I would like to became an RA. Followed by a group interview and an individual interview conducted by two professionals. The group interview was very activity based and seemed to focus more on how we can work and coordinate as a group, interestingly, current RA's were the ones who evaluated you during this portion. The individual interview was 1-on-1 but really2-on-1 as there were two professionals that asked specific questions about your experience with leadership and organizing roles as well as behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • What is one new thing you would do or implement as an RA?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    not much room for negotiation for location not pay as it is quite standardized. I would say that you should have an idea of where you would like to be placed and a good reason as to why THEY would want you there - think outside of the box!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston College (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I met with six separate people -- one in charge of hiring, those in charge of the departments I'd be working with, one of the university librarians, and an HR representative. Very detailed, emphasized the community aspect of BC. Was there for two hours and had a tour of the library at the end. They wanted to finish interviews before offering me the position, but were quick to let me know that I was one of only a few to get called in for the interview.

    Finance Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boston College (Boston College, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the online application that was emailed out to students. The application included basic information, work experience, GPA, and a few short essays. I would recommend writing a lot for the essays because they are looked at as a "cover letter." A lot of students apply for very few Coordinator positions. Be sure to highlight your strengths, work/extracurricular experiences, and why you would be a good fit. The interview took 30 minutes and was with 2 supervisors. It was very casual and entirely behavioral.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you describe a time when you disagreed with your supervisor? What did you do?   Answer Question

    I completed a phone interview for an entry level role in the Development Office.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Boston College (Brighton, MA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    After pre-screening by an agency, interviewed with the manager and potential co-workers. Everyone was very pleasant, The most difficult part of the interview was that the job description was not written very clearly, so I was not sure who would be making the firewall changes. During the process of the interview, it became clear that this was primarily a documentation project, and that the skills required were those of a technical analyst, project manager, and documentation specialist.
