    Intern - Hourly Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I already knew the employer, and received an email over the summer about interviewing for the position. I met with two members of the Duke Arts faculty and was asked about my experience on campus, why I've gotten involved in the arts, and why I was interested in the position. Very typical questions, nothing out of the ordinary and no difficult questions.

    Staff Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer who was also the hiring manager was pretty stiff and cold, read directly from the script, no warmth. I don't think she even really knew enough about the job I was interviewing for. She seemed pleasant enough, but I definitely wasn't sold on working there.

    Interview Questions

    • She immediately got to the salary question of what my minimum requirement was and then wanted to know my salary history. I always find this off putting. Wouldn't you want to ask me questions regarding my capabilities for the job as well as inform me of the designated salary range and then ask me if I'm still interested after hearing what the range is?   1 Answer
