    Developer Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boston College.

    Interview

    I applied to a position in the IT space. Met many of the people I would be working with and they were great. I was told that a decision would be made in a month. I contacted the director and he said he would check on the status. A month later I emailed him for an update and never got a response. If I didn't get a position, that's fine but an email saying I didn't get it would have been much more professional than silence.

    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston College in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview itself was easy. I met with the director and he was nice; we had a great conversation and he told me more about the position. He asked very standard interview questions and it was not difficult. However, after being told that I would hear back from someone in HR regarding the hiring decision within a few days, I was never contacted. I don't mind not being offered a position - I understand that there are many eligible candidates, but I do mind taking the time to come in for an interview, sending the appropriate thank you notes, and then never hearing anything. I think it's extremely rude and poor form. Come on BC, I expected much better from you.
