    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I was a graduate student at BU and I just talked with one of the professors, so my case is not very general. The reviewer was rather nice, and mostly asked general questions.

    Web Developer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Contact was initially made via email by what would be my direct supervisor and then the standard phone screening with him as well. At the end of our phone conversation I was asked to come in for an in person interview which I did less than a week later. I had a two for one in person interview where I sat with my direct supervisor and the assistant directors of both the Development and Design teams. It was the normal back and forth asking about my experience asking and answering questions. After about an hour of that I went in to see the Director of the entire department who was very nice and we basically just made small talk for about 15 minutes and asked if I had any further questions. After checking my references, they had me set up a meeting with HR where the official offer was given. Overall process took about 3 weeks.
