    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University.

    Interview

    Got 1st round phone interview request within 2 days. But the phone interview went really short (3 mins) because they can't hire sponsor visa.

    Oh man!!! CMU, you could have saved a lot of my time and others, if the job post stated it doesn't provide visa sponsorship for administrative and staff positions.

    DON'T TRY TO BE INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY WHEN YOU ARE ACTUALLY NOT.
    Visa holders and F1 students, be aware of the situation when applying. Maybe better to ask for the sponsorship possibility before doing the actual interview.

    Multimedia Producer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Carnegie Mellon University.

    Interview

    Several phone interviews. First round with HR was standard and smooth subsequent interviews should have been in person, as call quality and delay was not great. Hiring manager seemed unfamiliar with the duties of the newly created role and asked questions that were not in line with industry skill set. After a few rounds that were set at inconvenient times and being told I'd hear back soon I was ghosted. Very unprofessional. I'm glad I did not get the job as the positioned seemed to be created within a department with management skills in other areas and the inability to give notice that they were moving forward with other candidates demonstrates poor people skills.

    Interview

    no interview, just online application.
    I emailed my advisor during application, and he replied.
    But there is a committee in the department, professor's feedback doesn't count everything. You still need to meet some standards to be considered for admission, even with some professor's strong recommendation.

    They asked me about my previous research and why I was interested in CMU. There weren't too many details, I think they just wanted to get a general sense of who I was.
