    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Christopher Newport University (Newport News, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Long, very long, the longest ever experienced and drawn out, a total waste of time. The Human Resources Department makes spelling and grammar errors in their emails at the 3rd grade elementary school level.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Christopher Newport University (Newport News, VA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Full day long process. Great people - were really interested in forming a relationship with you and finding people who fit into the institution. Really painted the image of everything being wonderful and it being a great place to work, when in reality, there are a lot of flaws when you are on the inside. Very open to being asked questions and fairly laid back, as long as you maintain your professional front.

    Cook Interview

    Interview

    I first received a phone interview which was about 10 minutes long and was invited for an on campus interview. Parking was tough to find so I would suggest arriving at least 30 minutes early. I sat down with a manager and spoke with her for about 30 minutes. When she was finished reading the interview questions from her HR form, she asked me if I had any questions and when we were finished, she told me she would forward her results to HR. I received a letter stating I did not get the job about 2 weeks later in the mail.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Christopher Newport University (Newport News, VA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    The hiring official contacted me directly by email to set up a time for a telephone interview. Prior to this the HR department sent me a formal letter acknowledging receipt of my application…nice. On the day of the interview, the hiring official called promptly at the agreed time. The interview was conducted by a panel of four that included the hiring official, the official’s supervisor, and two individuals who would be supervised by the vacant position. Questions took place in a round robin format. The toughest questions revolved around how I would enforce a policy that I did not necessarily agree with. There was also time for me to ask questions about the position and work environment. The entire interview took 1 hour.
    Two weeks after the interview view I was contacted for an on campus follow up interview however the school did not have the funding to cover my plane ticket since I live on the west coast. Overall my impression is that CNU would have been a very good organization for a solid work environment.
