    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, was automatically notified it was now with the manager 9 days later, phone interview less than a week later, asked to come in person another week later. Interviewed in person and met at least 10 different staff members from different areas. I spent over 4 hours on campus. I wish I was told it would take up my whole day. Ended up having to pay for my own parking and since it was during lunch time, I was really hungry halfway through the day. 20+ days later, I was emailed that I did not get the position.

    Faculty Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    30 minute initial screening with many of the faculty members in the department. started with basic questions about you and your research. then, harder follow-up questions related to your research. finally, some shorter questions related to teaching and intended research contribution/specialization moving forward. more than other groups that i interviewed with this group seemed to focus on personality fit and overall future research agenda heavily as compared to groups that were primarily interested in current experience.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Duke University.

    Interview

    The interview process involved meeting with a variety of directors and administrators over the course of two days and included a presentation to a large group as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner groups. Each meeting was peppered with questions regarding real and hypothetical situations, gathering feedback on how I would respond to each situation were I to be in the position. Interviewers took copious notes during my interview, and it turns out, an internal candidate who was in the interview process had already secured the position. I gave two days of free consultation to tell this person how to do the job.
