    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dartmouth.

    Interview

    Very complicated, intensive process overall. First a phone interview with HR Manager, then in-person interview with HR Manager, which included correcting a writing sample for them to "grade" later. I then had to have another interview with HR where I had thirty minutes to write a letter describing what I felt the position to entail, after a conversation with the HR Manager when I could ask questions, etc. Finally, there was marathon afternoon of interviews, after which I barely knew my name. I met with 7 different people over three hours. Some where group interviews and some where one-on-one. Some where intense firing squad questions, some were more laidback, casual conversations. I was pleased the organization takes so much time and effort to hire the right people, but it was not the right fit for me.

    Senior Programmer/Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I met with a lot of people that ended up being my colleagues, and many of the faculty that I would be conducting work for. The interview was very cordial and they probed about my technical background and knowledge, but they also seemed very interested in my reasons for coming and hoping that I would enjoy living in the area and being a good fit for the group. They were clearly looking for a long term hire, not someone that was going to leave in a year or so.

    Interview Questions

    • With your background, you could work at a lot of different places. What, specifically, interests you in working here?   1 Answer

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Some professors will directly ask you what you want to study while at Dartmouth. Have something in mind to say.   Answer Question
