    Administrator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boston University.

    Interview

    Very laid back and pleasant experience. Hiring manager was very professional. Received call from hiring manager as opposed to HR, went through three rounds of interviews. One interview was a panel of approximately six people, with whom the individual in the position would have regular contact. Questions were mostly about background experience and what I would bring to the position. Overall a great group of people.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boston University (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I actually applied for two positions just to see how I would fit in their department. One was for a Junior role and the other for a more Senior role. I did well in both to a point where they brought me in. However, that's where I discovered the oddness of their process that literally wasted a lot of my time.

    Apparently, they had an internal candidate for the Junior position, and although they told me I was overqualified, they gave that position to him. I was under qualified for the senior role however, and in the end I didn't end up getting any position. I spent a good amount of time prepping for this interview, which spanned over a month, lots of 3+ hour drives, expensive parking at the Prudential Center, and more.

    I would not put too much effort into applying for this position as there are things out of your control that could prevent you from getting in.

As I only had 2 days notice, I went with the phone option.
