    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cornell University (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Quicker than I would expect. Basically, you heard questions from videos they had and answer immediately after the interviewer in the video finished. The recording started right after and you need to answer them immediately. The answer only gives you 1 minute to complete.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    UX Designer interview was done in two part, with one with the hiring manager and UX Designer and the second with the team. I was approached and asked to interview for this position. The position, was later cancelled due to the team not being able to reach a consensus on which candidate to bring onto the team. Unfortunately, this seems to be a common practice as several positions that I was asked to interview on different teams, they ended up canceling the position, because of team conflict during the hiring process of a new team member.
