    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I have spent the entire day at Dartmouth. However, it was a very pleasant experience.
    I have met my future boss and other professors. We did not have a strict schedule, everything was very flexible.
    Every single person was so easy going. We talked about science in general, about research in lab, and about transferability of my skills.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dartmouth.

    Interview

    There was no formal interview process, just the submission of application materials. My impression is that GRE scores and entrance essays seem to carry a lot of weight, so I would spend some time studying for the GRE and also crafting your entrance essays.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hanover, NH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Stay far, far away. My experience applying for and interviewing for an executive assistant role has been nothing short of surreal. The process was grueling - a phone screen, 2 writing assignments, on campus interview, case study, another on campus interview, multiple phone calls. The require 5 references and a background check, in addition to speaking with your current supervisor. I refused to let them contact my current boss and they lost it. Received angry phones, accused me of being disingenuous through the interview process and basically try to bully me into doing what they wanted. Never, ever have had any experience like this before.

    Student Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hanover, NH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is incredibly informal. The purpose is more to ensure you're familiar with the general workings of the library and research processes and could help someone with very general questions. You're not required to have an in-depth knowledge as those can go to your supervisor, and you're more or less responsible for knowing what direction to point someone in.
