    Assistant Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Davidson College in August 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview for a job I was SO excited for. The interview was the most formal phone interview I've ever had, and the most formal interview I've had in an educational institution in general.

    The interviewer was late to the call, then rushed me through at the end because she had another call immediately following. Big pet peave when people think their time is worth more than mine.

    I thought I did well, and the interviewer said they would be in touch the following Monday with next steps for in-person interviews. That was about a month and a half ago. I sent a thank-you note immediately after the interview, then I followed up the following week since I never heard back as promised. Still nothing. I check my status online often and it still says "in progress".

    Very disappointing. But luckily I got a great job in the meantime and possibly dodged a bullet here!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Davidson College (Davidson, NC) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Fairly easy. Just had to go in and give a brief background of myself, explain how I had heard about the job, explain what my technical background was, give a few details about myself. They were just screening me and making sure I would be able to talk to people that came in and that I could work well with other people.

    Vice President of Strategic Affairs Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Interview

    A complete waste of time to apply for positions ast Davidson. After letting people spend hours on their application process, they do this, " Due to internal reorganization we have decided not to fill the position at this time. We will instead work with a consultant to further refine our understanding of our needs in this area."
    I think this is the biggest insult to everyone who applied for the position. Davidson must think our time is worth nothing.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Davidson College (Davidson, NC) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Relaxed environment, but it can be intimidating as they sit you in front of everybody else who works in the building. The interview questions were meant to understand my personality and to give other employees the chance to get to know me.
