    Assistant Director for Global Initiatives Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Apply online or via snail mail (who still uses snail mail for applications)! They demand that you submit a cover letter and resume (fine that is standard), but download a non-writeable PDF application (old-school) for the university and submit that, plus your salary requirements. That is a bit extreme.

    Finance Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick and straight to the point. I had two interviews, phone based and then face to face the following day as they were eager to fill a soon to be vacant position. I was asked questions based on my past experiences, and I had a chance to ask questions. the face to face was a follow up on the phone interview, I guess they just wanted to see my face. Was informed about the nature of the job, day to day tasks and basically the hierarchy of staff in the department. I think at that point I knew I was going to be hired.

    Instructional Designer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First, there was a phone screening. The person performing the screening told me the interview process would be as follows: finish the rest of the phone screenings; conduct phone interviews for the best candidates from the phone screenings; invite the strongest phone interview contenders onto campus for the first round of interviews; then have a second round of interviews based on the first round of on campus interviews; and finally provide an offer. Apparently, I did so well during the screening, I was asked to come in for an interview. I was flattered.

    However, it snowed the day before my interview. The University had a 2 hour delayed opening. I was in constant email contact with one of the two interviewers, letting her know I was going to be there when the university opened if it didn't disrupt the interviewers schedule. She assured me everything was fine, and to be at the university when it opened.

    When I arrived at the interview, I was greeted by the phone screener and the second interviewer. She told me that the other interviewer could not make it because the public schools were closed and he needed to stay home and take care of his child.

    She and I continued the interview, with most of the same questions she asked on the phone being asked again face-to-face. The only other different interview question asked is given below. Whether I answered it properly or not (to her subjective liking) is another question. I'm assuming not, since she told me she'd call me "In a couple of days," to reschedule the interview to include the other interviewer, but she never did.

    She never even called to say the position was given to someone else. I called after 2 weeks wondering what happened (as I am from academia. This is the first time applying for staff positions. As a professor, I always received an email, phone call, letter, something that told me what was next). That's when she told me they offered the job to someone else, and if that person doesn't accept, then she'll contact me. Pretty rude in my book.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Catholic University (Washington, DC) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Normal interview questions. mainly asking about availability since it is a student job. Nothing too hard or complex, and no questions about strengths and weaknesses. I think the only question was in regards to why do you want the position. Its through the school, so they want you to work and will give you the job.
