    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the website. I came in for an one-on-one interview that went well, they asked mainly behavioral questions. The regular process is a group interview and then an one-on-one interview with select candidates, but since the group interview was when I went abroad they accommodated me by allowing me to do an early one-on-one interview.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI).

    Interview

    Simple application that seemed like more qualifications were required than what I later discovered. Interview process was friendly and simple. I didn't receive any trick questions and it felt like my interviewer was doing her best to help me do well. It was a position that was mostly about sociability and responsibility, so there was no need to give an IQ test, and I appreciated that there was very little pressure.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brown University (Providence, RI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Set up a couple of dates and times for the phone interview. Three people were on the call besides myself. After the introductions they said while they believed I was qualified for the position they wanted to make sure I knew what the maximum salary available for their position was. After I was informed of that, and was told that it was a non-negotiable number, I thanked them for their interest and time and the interview was over.

    Admissions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Providence, RI

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Brown University (East Providence, RI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Fair. the interviewers were very nice and understanding. they asked questions but did not seem like an interview, more like a conversation. Brown is a very liberal school, it is interesting to learn about their admissions policies. With the new dean change, has seemed to prefer not many diverse candidates for an admissions counselor position. One undergraduate student from Brown of color and has worked with the admissions office was denied and took an admissions office position at columbia instead. New hires were White and had no qualifications.

    There is no interview so I'm not sure what to say here. You just go to the Ratty (Sharpe Refectory) and fill out an application. Then you're immediately hired and sign up for shifts.
