    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Durham, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The interview is a pretty straight forward process. If coming from the outside the interviews are usually 1/2 day. Duke is big and individual departments have some discretion so a lot depends on where you are interviewing specifically. The hiring process is nothing out of the ordinary - they make an offer and you go from there.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate. Shoot high, as you will likely not get a substantial increase for a while, if ever if you stay in the position.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in January 2013.

    Interview

    You must talk to many, many people. The higher your expected position the more people you talk to. Expect to come in for multiple interviews (3 or more). Process is very slow.

    Interview Questions

    • Just standard interview questions. Nothing designed to trick you.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Non-existent. Take it or leave it.

    Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    Had one interview to land a student-worker job. Pretty straightforward. It's not really a matter of whether you fit, more of whether you're willing to do the work. Afterwards, it takes probably a week to get started on a project an working. The payment system is antiquated but I think they're finally moving towards a direct deposit option for all.
